Speaking from Lourdes, English journalist Austen Ivereigh describes the jubilee celebrations taking place at the shrine, and ponders why Catholic devotional practice still flourishes in this corner of secular Europe. Ivereigh also reports on the Lambeth Conference, the once-a-decade meeting of Anglican bishops, where Archbishop Rowan Williams is seeking to hold the church together amid battles over the neuralgic issue of homosexuality.
