Moved to tears

I watched Bernadette on EWTN and I was moved to tears. I had no idea how much the little saint suffered. Imagine being a 14 year old sickly girl and having to tell priests, bishops and cardinals that yes, you saw the Blessed Virgin and having to tell it to them over and over again. Imagine going to spend the rest of your life at the one convent in France where the novice mistress was determined to be mean to you. You can go here to see a photo of St. Bernadette's incorrupt body.

Saint Bernadette, pray for us.

Especially those among us who have fallen victim to that false apparition over in the former Yugoslavia.
