St. Bernadette's feast day

Today is St. Bernadette's feast day...Visit my saints' blog to learn more about this beautiful saint who was visited by The Blessed Mother in Lourdes.

I have St. Bernadette in my book, Catholic Saints Prayer Book (OSV, 2008).

Thanks so much for the reminder, Donna! It's also the Pope's birthday, as I'm sure you know (and maybe you also mentioned), as well as my Nick's birthday (he's 4 today). Plus, I have always had great admiration for Bernadette, grew up in Our Lady of Lourdes parish, and one of my daughters chose Bernadette as her Confirmation (saint's) name. Have a blessed day!

You are very welcome, Roxane.

Yes, he's celebrating at the Papal Palace. Happy Birthday to Nick! Wow, he's four already! I remember when he was so small! It's neat to hear all of your connections to St. Bernadette. I read her story when I was young and was deeply inspired by her.

Have a blessed night!
