"Every photo of St Bernadette"

Bernadette came from a very poor family. One that certainly could not afford to waste money on extravagences like photographs.

Nevertheless, against her wishes, Bernadette became quite a celebrity, and her superiors prevailed upon her to submit to photograph sessions. Often, the pictures were used on prayer cards that were sold. Thankfully, we have quite a number of these photographs of her.
