The Passion of Bernadette
The Passion of Bernadette is the story of the apparitions of Our Lady in Lourdes to Bernadette Soubirous. This beautiful film tells the story of her life after the Marian visions, when Bernadette leaves to enter the convent of the sisters of Nevers. Now, Sister Marie Bernard, starts her life of achieving holiness through prayer, faith, suffering, and deep charity toward all.
This film reveals the relentless suffering that St. Bernadette calmly, even gladly endured throughout her life in the convent. She went to eternal rest in 1879, at the age of 35. When her body was exhumed many years later, it was found to be incorrupt. Today she lays in rest in a glass case in the chapel of the Sisters of Nevers, where millions have come to see “the little saint of Lourdes.”
