St. Bernadette Comments

On April 16, 1879, Bernadette -- or Sister Marie-Bernard, as she was known within her order -- died in the Sainte Croix (Holy Cross) Infirmary of the Convent of Saint-Gildard. She was thirty-five. Born into a humble family which little by little fell into extreme poverty, Bernadette had always been a frail child. Quite young, she had already suffered from digestive trouble, then after having just escaped being a victim of the cholera epidemic ... Continue Reading

    I am in 4th grade and found this website very helpful for a report I am doing on Saint Bernadette. She was a great example to everyone.

    Since childhood the Blessed Virgin has been a source of strength and my most trusted confidant. I remember sitting through the movie of the story of Bernadette as a child in Catholic school. It was a big event where the whole school watched segments of the movie over a period of days. I am now in my 60's and am amazed at how I learn more about her almost daily. Our Holy Mother has, as would any loving mother, kept in contact with us through visits around the world and over the course of many years, even centuries. I would so love to visit one of the many sights she has appeared to pay my respects, and yet, I know that all I need do is speak and she hears me and greatly comforts me. I wish for all to know such comfort as she brings me and has brought to so many others. We need to pay attention to her messages. Now. Holy Mary, Mother of God, Pray for us sinners.

    this is a great site with tons of information on the wonderful and humble St. Bernadette. I am going to choose her for my confirmation saint. I always knew that she would be my confirmation saint since I read about her in a saint book I got for my First Communion. I was fascinated by her visits from the Virgin Mary and wondered how she could be so humble. I think that she was an amazing person and that she deserved to live a longer life, but at least we know that she is in heaven with God!

    The movie starring Jennifer Jones showed tonight. I have now seen it 5 times and each time I cry and pray a lot. It makes me wonder if I could possibly know someone today, that will one day be considered a saint. I know it's not me but could I still be blessed in knowing someone that special in the eyes of God, Jesus and Mary? Hope is such a marvelous thing!

    I pray to St. Bernadette to help heal my husband from his brain injury. When he first became ill I seriously considered going to Lourdes but didn't get the chance to go. Please pray for him. Please also include my friend Wendy's family. Her daughter Hannah entered as a postulate and has renewed-- she was renamed Sr. Bernadette. I do not think this is a coincidence.

    I am getting confirmed very soon and i chose her to be the saint i am going to be confirmed after. It is also a coincidence that I was deciding between 3 saints, but at the last second that I was going to do another saint, I kept having a thought of choosing her. I finally am. My birthday also Lady of Lourdes... 2/11

    God has blessed and favored you St. Bernadette. My sweet and dear sister I have kissed you in my prayers, please pray for me...

    I am doing this as my Confirmation name because even though Bernadette suffered many attacks from her bad health, she still wanted to serve the Lord and help Him. That is something admirable about her, and since I want to become a doctor after college, I pray there'll be less people sick and for everyone to have good health. That we may be able to find for the sick who have diseases that may not be able to be cured right now. I think of Saint Bernadette as humble.

    My name is Bernadette and I was named after Saint Bernadette. I was born on the Lourdes Centenary 11th February 1958. I visited Lourdes with my Mum and Dad a few years ago and loved every moment! I would love nothing better than to return with my husband david. We stayed at Hosanna House with the most beautiful grounds in Bartres.
    Our Lady of lourdes pray for us, Saint Bernadette pray for us.
