Lourdes- The discovery of the spring – Goosebumps

The wonderful and touching film “The song of Bernadette” (1943), with Jennifer Jones, narrates, with great accuracy from the historical point of view and with a splendid acting, the story of Lourdes. The young girl Bernadette Soubirous had 18 apparitions of the Virgin Mary, from 11th February to 16th July 1858, at Massabielle Grotto. The Catholic Church, which has strict criteria for establishing the authenticity of apparitions, approved Lourdes apparitions on 18th June 1862. Bernadette was canonized on 8th December 1933.
