WHO WAS ST BERNADETTE?
 January 7, 1844,  April 16, 1879 - Feast Day: April 16 / Feb 8 (France)
   Bernadette was a sickly child, contracting cholera as a toddler and suffered severe asthma for most of her life. She attended day school conducted by the Sisters of Charity and Christian Instruction from Nevers. Bernadette and her family lived in extreme poverty. She was canonized on December 8, feast of the Immaculate Conception in 1933.

Marie-Bernarde Soubirous

 MYSTIC / VISIONARY

14 year old Bernadette waw gathering firewood with her sister Marie and a friend near the grotto of Massabielle when Our Lady appeared to her intorducing herself as the: 

IMMACULATE CONCEPTION
  Mary revealed herself to Bernadettee as: " I am the Immaculate Conception." (a term confirmed recently in the church but she would not have known about this new title.) / postulate Sisters of Charity. CANONIZED: December 8, 1933 (feast of the Immaculate Conception) patroness of the ill, shepherds, the poor.

 WHEN ASKED IF OUR LADY WAS BEAUTIFUL

  "Oh! Oh! Yes indeed! And even more than that! so lovely that, when you have seen her once, you would willingly die to see her again!

 WHEN TESTING FOUND 
NOTHING SPECIAL IN THE WATER OF LOURDES
 Bernadette responded, "it was faith and prayer that cured the sick." (Today, over 67 miraculous cures have been documented and confirmed by medical teams - millions of pilgrims have experienced spiritual healings of faith.) 
+
MESSAGES OF OUR LADY
 Bernadette said on the third visit the beautiful lady told her: "There is no need for me to write down what I have to say to you. Will you be so kind as to come here every day for fifteen days?" She asked her to "pray for sinners", to always bring a lighted holy candle. Most messages were for Bernadette along with three secrets which she never revealed. She brought and prayed the rosary when at the apparition site. The messages shared that the Lord loved each of us.
