The churches which Our Lady requested young Bernadette to ask the priests to build on the huge rock over the Grotto of Lourdes.
Lourdes is a small village in the South of France and on the 11th of February in 1858 Our Lady appeared to a 14 year old peastant girl Bernadette Soubirous as she was collecting firewood with her sister for the family home.
Bernadette who was nearly always ill suffered painful attacks of Asthma, tuberculosis of the Lung and of the right knee. Original photo of the Grotto where Bernadette Soubirous saw Our Lady on the 11th of February 1858. Special thanks to the staff of the Sanctuary of Lourdes for permission to use these photos. During the next two weeks Mary asked for a church to be built there and for the sick to come there.

Fourteen year old Bernadette did not undersatand these big words so she repeated them over and over again as she ran back to tell the parish priest.
She never complained about her illness's and it was only shortly before her death when the doctor saw her limping and then examined her leg that they realised that she was so ill. Mary told Bernadette to dig in the ground and to wash her face in the water that then surfaced.
The water turned into a fount of spiritual and sometimes physical healing for so many of the pilgrims that have gone to Lourdes since. Bernadette became a nun and later she died in Nevers which is south of Paris in France on the 16th of April in 1879 after alot of physical suffering. Thirty years later the Church began the official process of examining her life to see if she was a Saint.

That spring that Bernadette opened on the surface at Mary's direction has never stopped flowing. If we look at Bernadette's earthly life from her own Conception nine months before her birth on the 9th of January 1844 to her death on the 16th of April 1879 we see that she lived for just over 36 years.
Perhaps God sent Mary the New Eve to Lourdes because the people there had a long tradition of praying the 6 decade Rosary instead of the usual five decade one.
