Storyboard Text

  • Bernadette Soubirous was born on January 7, 1884.
  • Bernadette first saw Mary on February 11, 1858, when she was collecting firewood with her sister and friend. She was the only one who saw her.
  • "uo petito damizelo." 
  • More people came every sighting. Half of the town believed it was Mother Mary, while the other half did not believe. But Bernadette was faithful and kept doing what She asked of her. 
  • On Febuary 25, the woman told Bernadette to drink and bathe from the spring. There was no spring but the woman told her to dig. She found a little pool of muddy water and drank and bathed in it. Later in the day the water became clear, and started flowing 27,000 gallons of water per day.  
  • During her sixteenth vision, which Bernadette claims to have experienced for over an hour, was on March 25. Bernadette claimed she had asked the woman her name, but her question was only met with a smile. Bernadette asked again, three more times, and finally the woman said, "I am the Immaculate Conception."
  • On July 29, 1866, she joined the Sisters of Charity at their motherhouse at Nevers and spent the rest of her life with them until she died on April 16, 1879 due to tuberculosis. She died while praying the rosary, and her body miraculously stayed preserved. 
  • Eventually, a church was built beside the stream. Many miracles have happened due to the healing properties of the water, including a man who was paralysed was cured. After the apparitions, Bernadette Soubirous joined a hospice school run by the Sisters of Charity of Nevers due to the attention she was getting.
