David von Oheimb's Photo Gallery: Lourdes, Pyrenees, France, 23 Oct 2011

When I passed by this place on my way back from Gavarnie to Toulouse, it brought to mind a joke I heard in several variations. Here is my own variant of it, in an unauthorized translation ;-)
The heavenly family is planning a joint excursion to earthly grounds. The Father is making suggestions where to go.
"How about Jerusalem?" - "Oh no, not again, please", Jesus responds, "people there threated me too badly last time!"
"Then maybe Lourdes again?" - "Well," Mary says, "I don't like the hype there, and have never really understood what it is about."
"Hmm, ... or the Vatican?" - "Ah, yes, that sounds interesting,", rejoyces the Holy Ghost, "since I've never been there!"
