February 11, 1858

Mary, the Virgin Mother first appears to Bernadette Soubirous at Lourdes, February 11, 1858.

I was always in awe of this story. I marvel at the great faith that was required for St. Bernadette to face down all the doubters.
When Jennifer was being baptized, Father Murphy hesitated over the name.
"Is Jennifer a saint's name?"
My father replied "Of course, Jennifer Jones played Bernadette in "Song of Bernadette"!"
Father Murphy laughed and proceeded. You can't argue with my father's logic.
