At Lourdes, one of the most important events for the sick is the special blessing they receive during the Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

The priest (here Bishop Fellay) comes before the wheelchairs and blesses each sick person with the Blessed Sacrament. Many times in the history of Lourdes, unexpected healings and special graces have been given to the sick at this very moment.
