Lourdes Palisades Tartan   Harlan--In the Shadow of “Jew Süss” Zeitgeist Films   The Art of the Steal Sundance Selects   Catholic churches are where Catholic people go to pray. The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes is where Catholic people go for miracles. When I was a schoolboy, a Catholic classmate of mine had a sister with a malformed foot. Their parents, working-class people, were saving scrupulously for a trip to Lourdes, hoping for a miracle to heal their daughter’s foot.
