Bernadette Soubirous, the visionary in the apparitions of Our Lady of Lourdes, was a simple, humble child. Our God will raise up the humble and push down the prideful. St. Bernadette is a model of faith, acceptance, and humility to all who recall the story of Lourdes.
Dear God, bless me with a simple, trusting faith
like that of St. Bernadette.
May I embrace suffering
and physical pain with peace, knowing you will always meet me
in the most difficult of times.
Read and pray with the Virgin Mary’s words to Bernadette from the Lourdes apparitions.
