St Bernadette fragments from the book, "Recent Apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary" by Stephen Breen published by The Scapular Press in 1952.
And even tenor of your days,
No ecstasy made you forget
Your poverty in its high rays.
Mary, the lowliest can tread
With confidence the path you trod,
Your life the bright and shining star
That leads wayfarer to God. (St Therese)
