Mary, you showed yourself to Bernadette
in the crevice of the rock.
In the cold and grey of winter,
you brought the warmth, light and beauty
of your presence,
In the often obscure depths of our lives,
in the depth of the world where evil is so powerful,
bring hope, return our confidence!
You are the Immaculate Conception,
come to our aid, sinners that we are.
Give us the humility to have a change of heart,
the courage to do penance.
Teach us to pray for all people.
Guide us to the source of true life.
Make us pilgrims going forward with your Church,
whet our appetite for the Eucharist,
the bread for the journey, the bread of life.
The Spirit brought about wonders in you, O Mary :
by his power, he has placed you near the Father,
in the glory of your eternal Son.
Look with kindness

St. Bernadette of Lourdes – Featuring stunning locations, a rich musical score, and a cast of over 160 mostly Catholic Homeschooled children, this unique film is an inspiration for young and old alike. Presented by Navis Pictures this movie is getting astounding reviews on such a magnificent and professional production.
The beautiful story of a poor, humble, 14 year old girl from a small village in the south of France. Her visions in 1858 of a “Beautiful Lady” would forever change the lives of countless people, and establish Lourdes as the most visited Catholic shrine in the world. Our Lady’s timeless message of “penance, conversion, and love” is as much needed now as it was then. Inspired by the many accounts of the famous story, but drawing especially from the beautiful book, St. Bernadette Soubirous by Abbe Francis Trochu (TAN Books) and the first-hand account, The Appearances of the Blessed Virgin Mary at the Grotto of Lourdes by Jean Baptiste Estrade, this film is perfectly suited for the entire family. Copyright 2010. Running time: 1 hour 17 minutes.
It’s a great show!
