Saint Bernadette is unusual in that she has two feast days. The first is today, February 18th. This is the day her Lady promised to make her happy, not in this life, but in the next. This is the day recognized in France to be her feast day. The second is April 16th. It was the day she died, the day the Catholic Church tells us she went to heaven. Saint Bernadette was only 35 years old.
