St. Bernadette - lifting your voice
By announcing the visions she'd had of the Virgin Mary to others, the young French saint placed herself in a vulnerable position. A sickly child with little education, the teen had to convince the authorities of her visions, something she eventually managed to achieve. As a result, millions have made pilgrimages to Lourdes every year to visit the grotto where Mary appeared.
