No airport miracle for Lourdes water
Airport officials in France have refused to allow Catholic pilgrims to bring Lourdes holy water on board an aircraft.
Inspectors at Tarbes-Lourdes airport said holy water is a security threat just like any other liquid.
However the Vatican organisers of the charter flight had forseen such an eventuality. They had placed a small complimentary bottle of Lourdes water on the seat of each pilgrim to drink on board.
