St Bernadette Body

SAINT BERNADETTE Intact, as if she had just gone to sleep, and awaits only the angel's call to rise to her feet. God did not want her to escape totally from our human wretchedness, nor leave her brothers and sisters for whom she gave her life. She is still among us — A. Ravier, S.J.
