 Our Description

A miraculous story of hope, courage and faith.

A superb cast, including Charles Bickford, Lee J. Cobb, Vincent Price and "newcomer" Jennifer Jones, triumphs in this film classic that tells the story of the peasant girl Bernadette Soubirous, a poverty-stricken, pure-hearted adolescent, who saw a vision of a "Beautiful Lady" near her home town of Lourdes in 1858. The wonderous news spreads rapidly throughout France, leaving in its wake a variety of consequences: adoration, suspicion and greed among the people of Lourdes ... skepticism from the town doctor (Cobb) .. charges of insanity from the town prosecutor (Price) ... threats of physical punishment, then support and guidance from the Dean of Lourdes (Bickford), who finally becomes convinced that the miracle has, indeed, taken place. Winner of four Academy Awards, including Best Actress and Best Score, this true story is both first-rate filmmaking and an inspiring tribute to faith,courage and the human spirit.

Profile
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.
