25th of October 2012. Hundreds of pilgrims had to be rescued by boats in the streets of Lourdes in Southern France. Idols were washed away into the roaring river.
20th of June 2013: Heavy floods in southwest France have left two dead and forced the closure of the Catholic pilgrimage site in Lourdes and the evacuation of pilgrims from nearby hotels.
Hundreds of Britons were among those evacuated as torrents of muddy water rushed through the town in South West France, leaving up to 1,000 vulnerable people stranded.
Thierry Castillo, the custodian of the Lourdes sanctuary, said: “The space in front of the grotto is entirely flooded, with the altar under water. There are torrents of mud. The damage will cost thousands.”

I might cross the line by calling this madonna the “lady of sludge”. But there are many other names that could have been given to this copy-cat mother of the Messiah.
Some of them are quite relevant, after studying the flood that covered this township in France this weekend.
The lady of mud.
The lady of floods
The lady of fish
What about the lady of clay?
Lets take a look at more photo’s:
I will destroy your high places, cut down your incense altars and pile your dead bodies on the lifeless forms of your idols, and I will abhor you.
This Roman Catholic altar were totally submerged. River fish of different kinds could fill the place where the priests adored their idols.
I have been in Lourdes. I have never seen more idols being offered in the shops. When the flood came, all the idols drowned.
For all the nations have drunk
the maddening wine of her adulteries.
The kings of the earth committed adultery with her,
and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.
The idols were not able to rescue them selves, and obviously no one else.
The children gather wood, the fathers light the fire, and the women knead the dough and make cakes of bread for the Queen of Heaven. They pour out drink offerings to other gods to provoke me to anger.
At the end of the floods, the governmental forces were called in to clean up the mess.
1 Timothy 2:5
For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.
My best guest is that Roman Catholics have learned nothing, and will soon continue to worship their worthless idols in this place.
