My saint ( St Bernadette )

My Saint is St Bernadette …

Feastday: April 16
Patron of illness, people ridiculed for their piety, poverty, shepherds, shepherdesses, and Lourdes, France
Birth: January 7, 1844
Death: April 16, 1879

St. Bernadette was born in Lourdes, France on January 7, 1844. Her parents were very poor and she was the first of nine children. She was baptized at St. Pierre’s, the local parish church, on January 9. As a toddler, Bernadette contracted cholera and suffered extreme asthma. Unfortunately, she lived the rest of her life in poor health.

I picked her because she is the patron saint of illness and my grandad is ill.

 

My week

On Monday I had to go to school and then I came back and had a steak bake for dinner. Tuesday was really good as we did singing in the afternoon and I went to dancing.Β  After that we went to Tesco for Freddo hot chocolate and it was amazing .Β  I went to soup club on Wednesday and made Lentil and Vegetable soup.Β  It tasted great. Dancing was also on and after that we went to Hamilton to meet my brother and go shopping. On Thursday we didn’t do much except from dancing and Moons.Β  Today is Friday and so far it has been great!
