Saint Marie-Bernarde Soubirous (born Maria-Bernada Sobiras; 7 January 1844 - 16 April 1879), was a miller's daughter born in Lourdes. From 11 February to 16 July 1858, she reported 18 apparitions of a small young lady.

Despite initial skepticism from the Catholic Church, these claims were eventually declared to be worthy of belief after a canonical investigation, and the apparition is known as Our Lady of Lourdes.

After her death, Bernadette's body has remained incorrupt, and the shrine at Lourdes went on to become a major site for pilgrimage, attracting millions of Christians of all denominations each year.

On 8 December 1933, she was canonized as a saint by the Catholic Church; her Feast Day is celebrated on 16 April. She has been considered a Christian mystic (see Christian mysticism).
