hursday 11th February 1858 : the first meeting
First apparition. Accompanied by her sister and a friend, Bernadette went to Massabielle, along the Gave, to collect bones and dead wood. Taking off her stockings to cross the stream and go into the Grotto, she heard a noise which resembled a gust of wind, she lifted her head towards the Grotto: “I saw a lady dressed in white: she was wearing a white dress, and a white veil, a blue belt and a yellow rose on each foot.” Bernadette made the sign of the Cross and recited the rosary with the Lady. The prayer over, the Lady suddenly disappeared.
