St Bernadette

St Bernadette - Foundation 2

St. Bernadette was born in Lourdes, France.  Our Lady, Jesus' mother, appeared to her seventeen times.  Bernadette was urged to pray for sinners and to build a chapel on the site.


Bernadette dug into the mud and a spring soon developed.  Many healings have been attributes to this water. As she got older Bernadette became a nun and died at the age of 35.
