The apparition of Our Lady of Lourdes is one of the most famous stories of Catholicism. Many years ago, she appeared to Bernadette, a 14-year-old girl, while walking along the river in her community with her sister.
This was the first time she appeared in front of the humans, surrounded by a beautiful golden halo, and so blessed Bernadette and her sister.
As the years passed, she began to be known for her numerous miracles with the sick, for in times of war and famine, many devotees asked her for cures.
Even the rarest diseases or those that seemed incurable, the Virgin was able to lift her powerful mantle over the sick and restore them to health.
This is how Our Lady became the patron saint of the sick.
