A few days ago, this painting stopped me at the monastery of the priests located at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes in southwestern France. It represents the reality that occurred in one of the Marian apparitions. Bernadette, a 14-year-old girl, attracts people of all walks of life and backgrounds to go to Massabielle Grotto.

It is common for people there to seek Catholic "mission hospitals" because of the reputation they have for the provision of holistic care to patients.
