    When I was born, my father choose Bernadet as my baptistm name. I don't know why, but when I grown up, I finally know why my father choose that name. He has a hope his daughter (me) will be like St. Bernadette.

    She is very down to earth, modest, mature and really believe in God and Mother Mary.So I hope in my life, I can follow her good personality..

    I'm thinking of choosing St. Bernadette for my saint for Confirmation. I don't know why, but I've always thought her story was inspiring, especially as she stuck to her word through all the harassment.

    Good morning or afternooon and hello
    This is what i thought of the information from this page.

    I thought that this source of information had many typos and didn't have the information that I was hoping for. From what I understand St. Bernadette of Soubirous is an incorrupt,which is the topic of my report, and in this page it showed nothing about her incorrupt body, the topic of my report.

    thank you for your cooperation,

    I believe that St. Bernadette suffered in silence with her illness so that others may come to know the truth about our Blessed Mother. God Bless St. Bernadette.

    every time I watch the Movie "The song of Bernadette I cry when the Blessed Mary appears to Bernadette. I do have seen the mother of God. She greeted me on 06/06/2008 when I had my cardiac arrest and was legally dead for 30 min. Two of my co-workers brought me back after a half hour. I was walking on the clouds of many colors and the white light appeared, the white light turned yellow and the gold in color. He was dressed all in white, with a white weil on her head. She had a blue belt tied on hung over her left hip. She had her hands folded in prayer, she then look at me and smiled, opened her hands and as i almost got to the end of the golded light, she slowly disappeared, but continued to look at me and smiled. I woke up in a hospital 3 days later and don't remember anything of the first three days. My wife and family along with the hospital nurses told me I spoke nonstop of what I saw, even though my heart was beating so weak to record a memory. Boy has my life changed. I always will remember what I saw, hope I can help anyone in need. I work as a nurse and my story has helped many peoples that are near death.

    I visited Lourdes, Nevers and saw S. Bernadette remains in the chapel at Nevers...I was touched and will continue to pray to the Holy Immaculate Virgin Mary and to St. Bernadette . My sister Cristina and myself feel so blessed with our visit to Lourdes and Nevers, France. GOD BLESS...Albert

    St. Bernadette is one of my favorite saints, and I loved the movie. To bad they don't play these on the Sunday shows.
