  • Product Description: St. Bernadette Soubirous is a two-fold story: that of the apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Lourdes, France in 1858, as well as of the 14-year-old peasant girl—raised in dire poverty and unable to read—to whom Our Lady appeared. But more, it is also the story of St. Bernadette's hidden life as a seemingly ordinary nun in her convent at Nevers, where she reached such holiness that after her death God saw fit to preserve her body incorrupt—as it remains to this day! Beautifully set forth in this book are St. Bernadette's childhood and life at home, her character—honest, intelligent, and straightforward—her description of Our Lady, the events surrounding the 18 apparitions, the opposition of the civil authorities, and the shrine and miraculous spring at Lourdes. Also described are Bernadette's life in the convent, where she suffered a martyrdom in body and in soul. His work is a masterpiece in saintly biography, the equal of which is rarely encountered. Without a doubt, this is the finest book ever written about Lourdes and its sainted and beloved visionary, St. Bernadette Soubirous.
