French bishop proclaims 70th healing in Lourdes a miracle

A Roman Catholic nun, disabled for almost 40 years, recovers after a pilgrimage to the Marian sanctuary.

The French bishop Jacques Benoit-Gonnin of the Beauvais diocese declared the healing of a Roman Catholic nun, Bernardette Moriau (79), miraculous. She was disabled for almost 40 years of her life.

In a video published at the diocese website, Sister Moriau declared that as she returned home after a pilgrimage to Lourdes, she heard a voice telling her to remove her leg braces. Immediately after that, she was able to walk on her own again.

This has now been officially proclaimed the 70th miraculous recovery attributed to divine intervention in Lourdes.

Today, the Church commemorates the Immaculate Virgin Mary who appeared to Saint Bernadette Soubirous at Lourdes, France, 18 times between February 11 and July 16, 1858. The memorial of Mary under the title of “Our Lady of Lourdes” was extended to the Universal Church by Pope Saint Pius X in 1907.

The apparition of Our Lady at Lourdes is one of the most celebrated events in the Catholic Church in the 19th century. In fact, the popularity of this devotion contributed to a renewal of the Catholic Faith in France and the shrine at Lourdes remains one of the most popular destinations for pilgrims in the world.

    In actual fact, there have been thousands of miracles in Lourdes.
    My late brother, my late mother, and myself.
    Not all miracles are recorded. Also every single person who visits Lourdes, comes away with something; nobody leaves empty handed.
