Bernadette could hardly read or write, she suffered from serveral childhood illnesses leaving her weak and asthmatic.

Her parents were François and Louise Soubirous

The image shows Bernadette's first home.


During the 18 Apparitions which lasted from Feb 11th to July 16th 1858, the Virgin Mary spoke to Bernadette, suggesting that we come here. The response of everyone of us to that invitation is made in Lourdes today, a Town of Friendship, world centre of Pilgrimage, a special place of meeting with God and people.
