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.
SAINT BERNADETTE Intact, as if she had just gone to sleep, and awaits only the angel's call to rise to her feet. God did not want her to escape totally from our human wretchedness, nor leave her brothers and sisters for whom she gave her life. She is still among us — A. Ravier, S.J.
