Thanks for this wonderful article. We visit the oratory each year and find it very rewarding spiritually. I wondered about those who kneel on the steps and pray their way up the hill. Do you know of any special prayers one should say on these 99 steps? A priest from Quebec told me their is a booklet of prayers for this. I hope you could direct me where I might find such a book or who I might contact. I appreciate it. Please ask around the diocese if anyone might know. Which prayers do most people say kneeling on the steps as they journey up the hill? God bless you.
