May 9th to May 11th
St. Bernadette continued her travels to Linville, NC. There, in the mountains of North Carolina, people from all over gathered to greet her and to venerate the relics.
"I received an email from a woman who had been 'brought by a friend' to see St. Bernadette," shared Fr. Christopher Bond, Pastor of St. Bernadette Church in Linville. "She told me she felt disenfranchised from the Catholic Church, but this visit made her fall in love with her faith all over again."
"It was a beautiful celebration," continued Fr. Bond. "I was able to be present with the people who came, putting myself out there so they could get to know their Father. It was an opportunity I will never get back, and it was in giving of myself that I received throughout the visit."
St. Bernadette continues to bring souls to Jesus through Mary, the 'Lady in White.'
