Our Lady of Lourdes is a title given to Mary, mother of Jesus, in honor of the apparitions that occurred in Lourdes, France between February 11 and July 16, 1858. She appeared to fourteen year old Bernadette Soubirous eighteen times and said to her, “I am the Immaculate Conception”. The doctrine of the Immaculate Conception had been proclaimed in 1854.
