Miracles

What is a miracle? Why do they happen? Who do they happen to? What were Jesus’ miracles? What miracles happen nowadays?

The Grotto at Lourdes We’ve been exploring these questions and investigating their answers over the past few weeks. Today, we learned about St. Bernadette and the apparitions of the Virgin Mary at a grotto in Lourdes, France in 1858. Mary appeared to Bernadette 18 different times! We call these apparitions.

Here is a short video clip of the 1943 movie The Song of Bernadette which shows the first time Mary appeared to Bernadette in the grotto.
