“These relics bring her (St Bernadette) within our reach. Yes, they are human bones that have known death and decomposition. But they are the bones of a young woman touched deeply and directly by the power of God. That power then shone so brightly in her life. And continues to do so. She reminds us that the transforming presence of God is always among us, in the midst of the shadows and sadness of this world.”
Cardinal Vincent Nichols
Archbishop of Westminster
