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.

    I read the life of Jennifer Jones who played the role of Bernadette.She was also a Catholic and had a very sad married life. Her daughter committed suicide by jumping from 22 floors in Los Angeles. I was so sad to read this because to me Jennifer was Bernadette. She like Bernadette could not find happiness in this world even though she was a millionaire. How interesting.

    Our Lady told Bernadette that she could not promise her happiness in this world, only in the next. I think that goes for all of us. We have to give up everything we have and go out like we came in with nothing. WE have to give Jesus I very own wishes and dreams. We are on a journey to be with him and this life is preparation for another life, a life where there is no sickness or sorrow. Our Lady of Lourdes help me understand what God wants me to do and to accept my cross.
