Our Lady appeared to St. Bernadette, asking her to return to the grotto for 15 days.
Bernadette agreed, and Our Lady made this promise:
"I promise to make you happy, not in this world, but in the next."
That is important to know for all of us. Our Lady never preached a 'prosperity gospel'.
I believe today is the memorial of St. Bernadette in France.
Bernadette's prayer of thanksgiving ...
Thank you Lady Mary,
that I am Bernadette,
who was threatened with prison
because I saw you.
I am she who the crowds
stared at as a rare animal -
that Bernadette so wretched
that upon seeing her,
it was said:
"Is that it?"
The crowds never change. After the disclosure of the Third Secret I remember them saying the same thing: "Is that it?"
