6 Bernardo, Antonio ...Bernadette Recounts Her Apparitions.
France: Andre Doucet et Fils, 2005. Soft cover.
 
No Flaws or Blemishes; Gift Quality, Illustrated. Text in English.
Marie Bernarde "Bernadette" Soubirous (1844 - 1879) was the firstborn daughter of a miller from Lourdes, France, and is venerated as a Christian mystic and Saint in the Catholic Church.
Soubirous is best known for the Marian apparitions of a "small young lady" who asked for a chapel to be built at the nearby garbage dump of the cave-grotto at Massabielle where apparitions are said to have occurred between 11 February and 16 July 1858.
She would later receive recognition when the lady who appeared to her identified herself as the Immaculate Conception.
Despite initial skepticism from the Catholic Church, Soubirous's claims were eventually declared "worthy of belief" after a canonical investigation, and the Marian apparition is now known as Our Lady of Lourdes. [wiki]
