Catholic Church officially declares 70th miracle of Lourdes shrine

On February 11, the Catholic Church officially recognized the 70th miracle of the Marian Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes in Southern France.

 

The announcement was made by Bishop Jacques Benoit-Gonin of Beauvais during Mass at the shrine basilica, just in time for the celebration of the Feast Day of Our Lady of Lourdes.

 

According to the Catholic News Agency, the miracle happened in 2008 when a French nun who had been suffering from spinal complications attended a blessing for the sick at the shrine. The nun, known as Sister Bernadette Moriau, has been fully disabled since 1980 and was also reported to be taking morphine to relieve her pain.

Sister Bernadette Moriau wasn’t able to walk since 1980 – until the intercession of the miracle of Lourdes.

 

In an interview, Sister Moriau said that after attending the blessing, she felt a surge of “well-being throughout my body, a relaxation, warmth.” She also claims to have heard a voice which told her to remove her braces, and, to the nun’s surprise, she was suddenly able to move and walk away from her wheelchair.

 

Sister Moriau’s case is among the 7,000 unexplainable recoveries that were believed to be caused by the blessings of the Marian shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes. The shrine’s first recognized miracle happened in 1858, when Bernadette Soubirous witnessed Marian apparitions at the site.
