 Our Description


It's February 11, 1858.  Three girls from Lourdes, France, gther firewood in front of a grotto.  Suddenly one of them, Bernadette Soubirous, 14, drops to her knees, gazes ecstatically at something beautiful only she can see, and starts to pray.


Soon the town buzzes:  Has Bernadette, poor, sickly, and always behind in school, really seen a Lady from Heaven?  The police chief is angry, the pastor busy, and the crowd amused, but Bernadette is calm and brave.  Then a spring bubbles up from nowhere and withered arms and sightless eyes are cured.  At last, the Lady tells Bernadette her name:  "I am the Immaculate Conception."

BERNADETTE, THE PRINCESS OF LOURDES, is the exciting true story of a visit by the Queen of Heaven that left all the world a source of health for body and soul.

Oldest of six children in a very poor family headed by Francois and Louise Casterot. Hired out as a servant from age 12 to 14. Shepherdess. On 11 February 1858, around the time of her first Communion, she received a vision of the Virgin; her own account of it is in the Readings section below. She received seventeen more in the next five months, and was led to a spring of healing waters. She moved into a house with the sisters of Nevers at Lourdes where she lived, worked, and learned to read and write. The sisters cared for the sick and indigent, and at age 22 they admitted Bernadette into their order since she was both. Always sick herself, and often mistreated by her superiors, she died with a prayer for Mary's aid. Since the appearances of Mary to young Bernadette in 1858, more than 200 million people have visited the shrine of Lourdes.
