Today, April. 16th is the Feast Day of St. Bernadette Soubirous
**Prayer to St. Bernadette
O God, protector and lover of the humble, You bestowed on your servant, Bernadette, the favor of the vision of Our Lady, the Immaculate Virgin Mary, and of speech with Her. Grant that we may deserve to behold You in Heaven.
Saint Bernadette through your intercession give me the grace of praying in the occasions of sin. Grant me a holy recollection, the grace of being aware of Mary’s holy presence, and the virtue of silence. Grant me from God the holy virtue of spiritual and bodily purity; as well as purity of conscience through humble, frequent, and sincere confession, for the greater glory of God. Obtain for me a heroic faith along with a loving-filled confidence in the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
God our Father, you give joy to the world by the resurrection of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Through the prayers of His Mother, the Virgin Mary, bring us to the happiness of eternal life. We ask this through Saint Bernadette and with the intercession of the Twin Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Amen.**
