Saint Bernadette Soubirous - April 16

 Saint Bernadette Soubirous – April 16
Patroness of
Those suffering from illness
Those suffering from poverty
Those suffering ridicule for their piety

Bernadette was born at Lourdes France, on January 7, 1844.  At the age of fourteen, near a cave at Massabielle, she witnessed the first of eighteen apparitions of the Virgin Mary (Our Lady of Lourdes), who identified herself as “the Immaculate Conception.”  At twenty-two Bernadette joined the Sister of Charity of Nevers.  She lived here until her death April 16, 1879.
