The Story of Our Lady of Lourdes

Our Lady of Lourdes is one of the invocations of the Virgin Mary most revered worldwide. His story begins on February 11, 1858 in Lourdes, France.

Bernadette Soubirous was then a girl of fourteen, poor and ignorant, but very devoted to the Virgin Mary and the Rosary. Bernadette went to a place called Massabielle to collect firewood with her sister and another girl, but having to cross a river, stayed behind because of his delicate health.

Bernadette was near a cave when he heard a noise and felt a wind. It surprised the appearance of a golden cloud and a woman dressed in white. The woman wore bare feet and each had a golden rose. In his waist was a wide blue ribbon. In hands together and praying position, wearing a rosary.

With the emergence of the lady, Bernadette’s reaction was to begin to pray the Rosary. According to some versions of this story, when Bernadette prayed the Hail Mary of the Rosary, the lady did not say anything and just passed the bills. When praying the Our Fathers and Glories, she prayed while she. When Bernadette finished praying, Mrs. returned to the grotto and disappeared.

Bernadette told that she was not afraid to see the lady but had wanted to stay forever staring. However, when he returned to his home and his mother heard what happened, she did not believe him. She forbade him back, but after a few days allowed Bernadette returned to the grotto. Mrs. appeared again.

This time Bernadette was accompanied by others.

To check if it was true what he saw, Bernadette threw holy water to the lady and asked him if he came in God’s name, take a step forward. Mrs. stepped.

Later he could convince his father to let her return to the cave and he allowed him to go on 18 February.

It was during this third appearance on February 18 that the Virgin asked Bernadette to return for fifteen 15 followed. He spoke in his own Gascon dialect, and addressed her using the “you” (VOI) courtesy. He said, “Will you do me the favor of coming here for fifteen days?”. He also promised he would be happy in the other world.

Some who heard of the apparitions, believed in the event and came to the cave. Others mocked Bernadette and what looked like a figment of his imagination. On February 25, Bernadette dug into the earth to find a spring that Mrs. directed and took water with soil could get.

Bernadette was the subject of ridicule of many to get dirty face with mud obey the command of the lady to wash in the spring that had not yet fully emerged. Shortly after the waters gushed the miraculous spring, which have since been certified vehicle many miracles by the Catholic Church.

The apparitions continued. Mrs. encouraged Bernadette to pray for sinners and asked that a chapel be built there. He also asked Bernadette to kiss the earth as an act of penance and sign of humility, a practice that continues today in Lourdes.

On 25 March 1858 the lady appeared for the sixteenth time. That was when Bernadette asked 4 times who she was and she finally replied that it was the Immaculate Conception. Being Bernadette a young illiterate and without access to Catholic dogma of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary, who had been proclaimed on December 8, 1854 by Pope Pius IX, these words allowed, finally, the parish priest believe him.

On April 7, Bernadette remained in ecstasy during the apparition of the Virgin, even when the candle she held her hands reached and kept on at them without quemárselas.

The Virgin appeared to Bernadette for the last time on July 16, 1858. Her apparitions were declared authentic on January 18, 1862.
