Our Lady of Lourdes

Our Lady of Lourdes 1

“On February 11, 1858, a young lady appeared to Bernadette Soubirous–beginning a series of visions. The lady identified herself with the words: “I am the Immaculate Conception.”

People began to flock to Lourdes from other parts of France and from all over the world. In 1862 Church authorities confirmed the authenticity of the apparitions. The Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes became worldwide in 1907.” -American Catholic
