5.0 out of 5 stars Bernadette Film, 5 July 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Song Of Bernadette [DVD] (DVD)
A fantastic film that won quite a few awards. Even though the film is in black and white it captures the heartache,indignity, faith, and a true story of Bernadette Soubirous and the struggles of a poor family living in one tiny room and Bernadette suffering ill health with Asthma. Bernadette was 14yrs old when the first apparition appeared, she had over 18 visions from Our Lady at the Grotto in France in 1858. She died in 1879 and was Canonized. Lourdes is celebrating it's 150th year where over 8 million people visit the Grotto every year, bathe in the freezing cold spring water and people come in Procession to celebrate Our Lady apparitions. This Year Pope Benedict XVI will be celebration Mass in Lourdes on the 13th September due to 150 years of the Apparitions. A number of crutches hang above the Grotto where people have had miracles and bathe in the miracle spring water that Bernadette was told to dig under her feet. The town of Lourdes is a busy place especially at Easter where the HCPT (Handicapped Children Pilgramage Trust) take various disabled and ill young people for a weeks holiday, the fun, laughter and friendship that people make that week last a life time. I speak from experience and hope and pray that I can return perhaps next year. A fantastic film, highly recommended, even more so when the story is true. God Bless.
