Actual Video of Her Body By A Pilgrim At Lourdes

The other night, I just saw on TV the most mesmerizing sight I ever beheld in my entire life. There in the National Geographic documentary, I saw the miracle of the incorruptible body of St. Bernadette of Lourdes. Scientists in various parts of the world are baffled by this most strange and unique phenomena. When St. Bernadette died, her body was not mummified, yet when her body was exhumed several decades later, church and medical authorities found it to be perfectly intact and had no visible signs of decomposition. The body was exhumed twice more, the last at 1925 when her body was finally brought to a church for public showing. Written below is an excerpt of the life of St. Bernadette culled from Wikipedia.

"Saint Bernadette (born Marie-Bernarde Soubirous, January 7, 1844- April 16, 1879) was a miner's daughter from the town of Lourdes in Southern France. From February 11, to July 16, 1858, she reported eighteen apparitions of "a Lady." Despite initial skepticism from the Roman Catholic Church, these claims were eventually declared to be worthy of belief after a canonical investigation, and the apparition is known as Our Lady of Lourdes. After her death, Bernadette's body reportedly remained incorrupt, and the shrine at Lourdes went on to become a major site for pilgrimage, attracting millions of Catholics each year. On December 8, 1933, she was canonized as a saint by the Catholic Church, her Feast Day is celebrated on April 16."

In my heart I know that the Lord has granted a great miracle to arouse the faith of people around the world and to show His great love and care for this little girl who had been faithful to Him. He showed the world the future of His children when their corruptible bodies will be transformed into incorruptible and glorious bodies to meet Jesus Christ in His second coming.

It's not widely known but St. Bernadette Soubirouse's face and hands are made out of wax. That is why she looks so natural compared to the other incorruptibles.

She's like sleeping soundly yet she entered heaven 130 years ago. Thanks for this wonderful info about her. During her last exhumation, religious authorities put wax on her face and hands to make it appear in natural tone (color). Her face darkened slightly after being exposed to air. I owned Joan Carrol Cruz' Incorruptibles. I have downloaded the complete youtube about incorrupt saints on my MACBOOK and I am really obscessed in researching them. I managed to see the incorrupt body of Pope St. Pius X in Rome last year. Their incorruptions are big proof that the Catholic Church is the true religion instituted by Jesus Christ. Incorruptibility is the greatest gift given by God to his saints who lived their lives in accordance to HIS WILL heroically. Their lives are worth emulating and a great call of holiness for all of us.

Hi Dan Thoms,
That maybe true but still there is no denying the fact that she was still incorruptible otherwise she would have been just skeleton by now. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless.
