The Servant of God Herman Cohen was the first to lead a pilgrimage to Lourdes on 20 September 1858. Hundreds of people joined him in front of the grotto, although it was still blocked off by barricades and the civil authorities forbade close access to the site. He made quite an impression on St. Bernadette.
Preaching in 1864 in Malines, Belgium on Catholicism in England, the Servant of God Hermann Cohen boldly spoke out against the so-called "progress" of the secularization he witnessed in England. "The great obstacle to progress is that the Master has been excluded from all Laws, Constitutions, and Governments..."
In his canticles "For the Love of Jesus Christ", which were published in 1851, the Servant of God Hermann Cohen wrote a summary of his vocation in the dedication pages of the book, closing with a hymn of praise to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament: "Throw yourselves at His Feet; give Him your heart, and He will bless you."
You must try to maintain a deep peace in yourself and not allow yourself to become troubled. Ask Jesus to command the winds and the storms and bring about calm and tranquility in [your] inner life.
At the moment of Benediction, though I was not kneeling like the congregation, I felt something deep within me
I am the daughter of the Lord, the mother of the messiah, the spouse of the Holy Spirit... I am the woman promised to the world
Some verses alone of that divine book scattered my doubts and caused an unexpected and indefectible light to fall on my eyes
We must now build a church in the garden
