Join us in Prayer for the 2018 Lourdes Novena

Join us in Prayer for the 2018 Lourdes Novena

On February 25, 1858, during Our Lady of Lourdes' ninth apparition, Bernadette Soubirous discovered a spring of water in Lourdes, France. Water, and miracles, have flown from the spring ever since.

Thousands of people have had their lives touched in amazing ways after visiting the sacred spring. The Catholic Church has officially recognized 70 miracles attributed to Lourdes. And these are not miracles that you only read about in the history book. They are happening today! The most recent miracle was declared this past February.

Sister Bernadette Moriau, 79, visited the holy spring at Lourdes in 2008 seeking a cure for her chronic sciatica. She had suffered from the disease since childhood, and four operations on her spine provided no relief. Since 1980 she was an invalid requiring a wheelchair and significant amounts of morphine for the pain.

When visiting the sacred spring at Lourdes, Sr. Bernadette experienced an unusual feeling of relaxation and heat in her whole body. Soon she no longer needed the use of a wheelchair or pain medication. There was no medical explanation for her cure, and after an extensive examination by the Church, her healing was declared the 70th official miracle at Lourdes. Today, Sr. Bernadette is active in a variety of ministries in her community, including visiting the sick and sharing with them her miraculous story.
