I love St. Bernadette! The most spectacular of all the incorruptibles, St. Bernadette's miraculously preserved body remained buried in a damp grave for thirty years until the cause for beatification was taken up. To this day, the body of Bernadette is a profound source of inspiration and of mystery surrounding the ways of the Lord.

St. Bernadette died in 1879 and was canonized a saint in 1933. Her body was exhumed in 1909 and fount incorruptilble. It was exhumed again in 1919, still incorruptible. In 1925 she was placed in a crystal coffin, in a chapel in the Church of St. Gildard at the covent of Nevers where she has been on view ever since, still incorruptible.
