"St. Bernadette "

Bernadette Soubirous is one of the most famous of Catholic Saints. She had visions of Mary in 1858 at Lourdes, France, which were declared “worthy of belief” by the Church in 1862. Many, many miracles have occurred at Lourdes since then. This picture was taken in 1861 or 1862. She joined the Sisters of Charity in 1868. Saint Bernadette is the patron of the ill, poor, sheep tenders and those ridiculed for their piety. Her feast day is February 18 in France, and elsewhere April 16. Her own favorite Saint was Bernard.

We hope this photo restoration gives you a better sense of Bernadette as a living girl. This face before you is one who saw the face of the Mother of God. There is something of the firmness in this young woman’s gaze we think comes from Heaven and gives Bernadette her beauty.

It is our hope that our exclusive photo reconstructions remove some of the fog of history and give you a more intimate experience of the Saints. We hope you find it easier to understand them as one like us, a living human being
