February 11 – Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes

Bernadette: the greatest miracle of Lourdes.

On February 11, 1858, in the French village of Lourdes, on the bank of the Gave river, our holy mother, Mary, manifested in a direct and close manner her love for us. She appeared to a young girl of only 14 whose name was Bernadette Soubirous.

At that moment, Bernadette experienced the most beautiful moment of her life: “I felt a strong wind which compelled me to raise my head. Looking around, I noticed that the branches of the thorn bushes that grow around the cave of Masabielle were moving. At once there appeared, a beautiful Lady, so lovely, that seeing her, one wished to die, such is the desire to see her again.”

Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us!

St. Bernadette Soubirous, pray for us!
