Saint of the Month

April:
St. Bernadette

St. Bernadette

St. Bernadette, who suffered from asthma, was the oldest of six children of a poor miller. In 1858, when she was 14 years old, she experienced a sequence of 18 visions of Mary at the rock of Massabielle at Lourdes. The visions she saw took place over a period of six months. In the visions, Mary spoke to Bernadette about the need for prayer and penance, ordered the building of a church, and told her to drink from a spring, which produced a large amount of water from the moment Bernadette drank from it. In 1866, Bernadette joined the Sisters of Notre Dame of Nevers, where she stayed the rest of her life. During her lifetime, she was famous for her visions and people wanted to buy pictures of her. Bernadette died at the age of 35 because of a long illness.

St. Bernadette is the patron saint of illness, sick people, Lourdes, France, and poverty. Her feast day is April 16.

Andrew I., Secretary of Religious Affairs
