Wallpaper Description:
On 11 February 1858, Bernadette Soubirous went with her sisters Toinette and Jeanne Abadie to collect some firewood and bones in order to buy some bread. After taking off her shoes and stockings to wade through the water near the Grotto of Massabielle, she said she heard the sound of two gusts of wind . . . but the trees and bushes nearby did not move. She said she saw a light in the grotto and a girl, as small as she was, dressed all in white, apart from the blue belt fastened around her waist and the golden yellow roses, one on each foot, the colour of her rosary. Bernadette tried to keep this a secret, but Toinette told her mother . . . Three days later, Bernadette returned to the Grotto. She had brought holy water as a test that the apparition was not of evil provenance . . . the vision . . . inclined her head gratefully when the water was cast.

Bernadette's companions are said to have become afraid when they saw her in ecstasy. She remained ecstatic even as they returned to the village. On 18 February, she spoke of being told by the Lady to return to the Grotto over a period of two weeks. She quoted the apparition: “I promise to make you happy, not in this world, but in the next.”

. . . On 24 February, Bernadette related that the apparition asked for PRAYER and PENITENCE FOR THE CONVERSION OF SINNERS. (This same message was repeated several times during the visitations!!!) The next day, she said the apparition asked her to dig in the ground and drink from the spring she found there . . . Although it was muddy at first, the stream became increasingly clean. As word spread, this water was given to medical patients of all kinds, and many reports of miraculous cures followed (The expertly approved cures included the healing of CANCER and the curing of BLINDNESS) . . . The first person with a “certified miracle” was a woman whose right hand had been deformed as a consequence of an accident.

. . . On 25 March, she said she was told (the name of apparition who said): "I am the Immaculate Conception" . . . On Easter Sunday, 7 April, her examining doctor stated that Bernadette, in ecstasy, was observed to have held her hands over a lit candle without sustaining harm. On 16 July, Bernadette went for the last time to the Grotto. I have never seen her so beautiful before, she reported . . . On 18 January 1860, the local bishop finally declared that: The Virgin Mary did appear indeed to Bernadette Soubirous . . . (Bernadette was told several secrets from the Blessed Virgin which she was not permitted to reveal during the span of the apparitions and later after becoming a nun was canonized a saint by the Holy Church when to their joy her body was discover INTACT YEARS LATER BY NO NATURAL OR CHEMICAL MEANS!)
