Even though I rarely agree with you, I never stop respecting how strong you are in your personal beliefs.
I am pleased that you posted about St. Bernadette. I was raised Catholic, and her story was always one of my favorites, as were any involving
apparitions of Mary. In fact, when I made my confirmation in 8th grade, Bernadette was my confirmation name. Regardless of how I feel about being
forced to go through with my confirmation, I have always enjoyed reading about her and didn't even think twice about what name I would choose.
I have also always found it fascinating (if not a little creepy) that some bodies that just won't decompose. Whether it is because of natural,
supernatural or man-made causes, it's still interesting.
