Filmed adaptation of the life of St. Bernadette of
Lourdes. As a 14 year old peasant girl growing up in
the tiny French village
of Lourdes in the
century, Bernadette (Daniele Ajoret) experiences visions of the Virgin
a nearby grotto during February and March of 1858.
Doing as instructed, Bernadette digs by a
large rock, revealing a healing spring that is still visited today -
the Lourdes. Bernadette joined the Sisters of Charity at
Nevers (1866) and remained in seclusion until her death at 35. After her death, Bernadette's body remained
"incorruptible", and the shrine at Lourdes
went on to become a major site for pilgrimage, attracting millions of
each year. On December 8, 1933, the
Roman Catholic Church canonized her as a saint.
