The Third Apparition, 159 Years Ago

Thursday, February 18, 1858: The Lady speaks

Third appearance. For the first time, the Lady speaks. Bernadette presents her a writing-desk and asks her to write her name. She said, "It is not necessary," and she adds: "I do not promise to make you happy in this world but in the other. Will you do me the favor to come here for a fortnight?"
