Bernadette



Colour: Green

Saint: St Bernadette

Bernadette was born in Lourdes, France in 1844, to a very poor family.  Bernadette was out collecting sticks for firewood when Our Lady first appeared to her.  Over the next year she appeared 18 times to Bernadette.  The great shrine of Lourdes which was built where Mary appeared has been a place of many miracles and cures of the sick.
