Purchase this lovely religious figurine depicting Our Lady of Lourdes with Bernadette. Each piece is hand-painted in exquisite detail, and cast of a durable resin and stone composition. Would make a wonderful gift for a Catholic. Bernadette experienced eighteen visitations from Our Lady of the Lourdes over a six month period never knowing who the Lady was until the last apparition. During the apparitions, Mary instructed Bernadette to dig a hole in the ground and drink and bathe in it. The hole later turned into a spring of water which Mary promised would be a healing spring for all who came to use its waters.
