The Fourteenth Apparition, 159 Years Ago

Wednesday 3 March 1858: The smile of the Lady

Fourteenth apparition. At seven in the morning, in the presence of three thousand people, Bernadette went to the Grotto, but the vision did not appear! After school, she hears the inner invitation of the Lady. She goes to the Grotto and asks for her name. The answer is a smile. Father Peyramale repeated to her: "If the Lady truly desires a chapel, let her give her name and make the rose of the Grotto bloom."
