Eighteenth And Final Apparition, 159 Years Ago


Friday July 16, 1858: The last appearance

Eighteenth appearance. Bernadette feels the mysterious call of the Grotto, but access to Massabielle is forbidden and closed by a palisade. She goes to the other side of the Gave ... and sees the Virgin Mary one last time: "It seemed to me that I was in front of the cave, at the same distance as the other times I saw Only the virgin, I have never seen her so beautiful!"
