"We do this to show that it comes from the heart"

The December 2010/January 2011 issue of Lourdes Magazine has as its main feature a retrospective look back at the pilgrimages that visited Lourdes during a year whose theme was "Making the sign of the Cross with Bernadette".

A short piece about the pilgrimage of travelling people to Lourdes includes the following dialogue:
"The sign of the cross is part of our life and our traditions", says Teejy. "It's like a prayer. It is not a question of signing like Zorro but taking the time to really ask the Father, Son and Holy Spirit to come and enlighten us". Moses, shirtless, eyes clear, added: "We do it, then kiss our hand and place it on our heart". He adds: "by your mouth you bless the Lord, but you can also curse him, so we do this to show that it comes from the heart".
