Bernadette - and it's not even close. Everyone knows who "St. Bernadette of Lourdes" is, but so few know who Bernadette Soubirous is.

Erm... Unless they've seen Song of Bernadette, or read any single book written about her or Lourdes. Ever...

I bet he has a better place in Heaven than those who ridiculed him. So, who/whom turned out to be the dunce(s). I am adding him to my intercessor list. Thanks for this truly.

I'm glad you read and love it. When I first read it, it was with tears in my eyes. Abp. Goodier was a great writer, perfectly suited to tell the story of this great Saint.

Song of Bernadette - If a person relied on that book or movie to really know who she was, then they hardly know her.  These books introduce people to the real person - Bernadette. [Image: 519ZBA8YGVL._SL500_AA300_.jpg]
This is a book of her writings and thoughts....

Jackson, it's a really good film so I hope you like it when you get round to seeing it.

SaintAndrew those books look pretty good, I'll have to keep an eye out for them.
