Miracle of Lourdes: between quietude, healings and miracles
Miracle Or Healing? The differences
The miracles of Lourdes and the cures in Lourdes: what are the elements that differentiate the 2 situations?
On the outskirts of the Sanctuary, thousands of testimonies are engulfed in the alleys of the Lourdes for decades affirming the inexplicable, the unthinkable miracle of this or that person. Rumors, noises, leaks, hawking spread like wildfire and reason in the minds of visitors and question the officials of the Church.
Is it a miracle? Is this a cure? Is it a remission? Is it a recovery? Is it soothing? So many questions that only medical expertise could answer.
The Lourdes International Medical Committee, made up of imminent international medical specialists, intervenes as soon as it is seized by the Lourdes Medical Office of Findings, on all the particular events relating to these situations. Each file is scrutinized with sustained, careful and suspicious attention, for several years, using the latest analysis tools (MRI, scanner, videopascule ...). The means of diagnosis increases as discoveries and medical and scientific knowledge progress.
The risk of condoning an ubiquitous phenomenon, the fear of indignation and ridicule, push these experts to qualify a state as normal or abnormal only when all the conventional scientific hypotheses have been studied. It is only on the basis of this long process of expert opinions and second opinions, medical reports and reports that the conclusions are advanced and submitted to the Church.
Among these conclusions, two situations arise: normal or explained healing and abnormal or unexplained healing.
First of all, what is healing? It is the complete disappearance of the symptoms of a disease, ailment, a pathology or an injury. As soon as the health and condition of a person for whom the functioning of all the organs becomes harmonious and regular again, conventional medicine speaks of healing.
If this healing is explained through scientific research, biomedical technologies, treatments, surgeries and therapies, it will be described as “normal” or “explained”.
Otherwise, if no rational medical, anatomical, physiological, prophylaxis, physical, mental, chemical and medicinal explanation is advanced by these professionals, healing in extraordinary and unpredictable ways will be called "abnormal" or "Unexplained".
So what is a miraculous healing called?
From the moment healing is judged abnormal or unexplained, it is up to the Church to study the character of faith. Competence rests with the Diocesan Canonical Commission which says whether or not there is a miracle. It is the spiritual elements, belief in the divine special intervention, listening to oneself, spiritual transformation and psychological balance of the healed that allow this commission to make its decision, unanimously of its members. One voice against and the miracle will not be proclaimed by the bishop.
Reading this long process of commissions, extended over more than 10 years, we understand why among the 7200 healings known to date, only a little more than 2000 have been observed (normal or abnormal) and that only 70 of them they were baptized with miracles.
It is very likely that this number is below reality. The interminable medical and personal examinations over ten years on average slowed down the goodwill of the cured and led to the abandonment of the procedure.
They consider themselves healed, and, spiritually, that is enough for them.
70th Miracle Of Lourdes: Unexplained Healing Of A Sister
Among the 7200 registered healings at the International Medical Committee of Lourdes, that of a sister nurse of a convent of a congregation of Franciscans was declared miraculous officially the day of the 160th anniversary of the first apparition of the Virgin Mary in Lourdes.
This Sunday, February 11, 2018, AFP receives a statement in which the Bishop of Beauvais in the department of Oise declares "Observing that said healing, was sudden, instant, complete, lasting and remains unexplained in the current state of our scientific knowledge ... the prodigious, miraculous and divine sign of the healing of Sister Bernadette MORIAU obtained by the intercession (...) of the Virgin Mary ".
For more than forty years, this lady has debilitating lumbosacral pain requiring her to wear a corset and splints despite several surgeries. In July 2008, at the age of 69, when returning from a pilgrimage to Lourdes, this faithful "feels an unusual sensation of relaxation and warmth throughout her body" and "perceives as an inner voice that asks her to remove all of its devices. Since then she has been walking as if she had never been paralyzed.
10 long years have allowed the CMIL doctors to confirm the miracle, after many medical examinations, expertises, counter-expertises and scientific meetings.
A 70th miracle of Lourdes is finally unveiled publicly on this great Sunday. In the present state of knowledge of science and medicine, no element has come to bring the least doubt about this miraculous character of this Frenchwoman.
Is it the sacrament of the sick received with oil blessed by the bishop, is it divine intervention, is it prayer and faith, is it the absorption of the water of Lourdes, no know that she element to energize this healing.
Let this glimmer of shadow glide, let us rejoice at this spiritual feat, let us feed this wonderful moment of resurrection, share this magical moment and accept the inexplicable.

So Many Healings And Few Miracles
In this long list of witnesses, these people are only those who dare to testify, many other visitors remaining silent, modest, keeping for themselves their inner emotions, their flashes of spiritual energy, the bodily heat, the physical relief, the rebirth .
Yet, the number of miracles in Lourdes remains frozen at 69 so far. Even if signs of healing remain unexplained by medicine accepting the evidence of the miracle, the battery of expertise investigated by the Bureau looks like a long and winding path that pushes the slightest doubt that could undermine the credibility of this institution.
Today the number is 69 miraculous cures; tomorrow how much will it be? It does not matter. Let's leave the statistics to the most incredulous.
We know that Lourdes, its places and its water heal every day. This ecumenical place, of an exceptional vibratory level, brings together all the spiritual tendencies and all the holistic sensibilities.
Let's enjoy this freedom of belief and come for the magic of the soul. Let us trust and breathe joy and fraternity in the smallest mazes of this universal mystic theater.
70th Miracle Of Lourdes: A Child Of 6 Years?
During a pilgrimage to Lourdes from 08 to 12 May 2016, a 6-year-old girl from Italy was suddenly cured of profound deafness.
Immediately, his entourage wished to declare this unexplained cure to the office of the medical disputes of Lourdes.
But for this medical cure to be called a miracle, we must combine the medical approach with that of faith, medical healing not whistling.
It is for this reason that among the 7200 unexplained and declared cures in Lourdes, only 69 are described as miraculous.
The caution of the International Medical Committee of Lourdes pushes the Church to assess these situations for many years: example of the 69th miracle of Lourdes whose expertise lasted 24 years.
Is it then the last miracle of Lourdes? Will it be the seventy-fourth miracle heavy? These questions do not seem to be preponderant and crucial!
Indeed, beyond this battle of endless analyzes, let us remember that thousands of healings took place in Lourdes. And no matter what their qualification, miracle or not, these pilgrims know that grace has bent over them, touching them in their souls and bodies, thus offering them this new hope, a new life.

However, there are no statistics on the 700 healings that the Lourdes authorities have found.
Were there other french places of miracles before Lourdes?
History reveals that Paris, alpine and Pyrenean regions celebrated at different times in the places where appeared the Virgin Mary, where miracles occurred, where pilgrimages are organized.
Let's start with Notre-Dame de Bétharam, located in the village of Bétharam, in the city of Hautes-Pyrénées, whose 17km separate it from Lourdes. Following the vision of Mary by shepherds, a church was built prior to the 16th century, burnt down in 1569 by protestants and then restored at the request of louis XIII. Close to the building, a fountain miraculously sank after years of dwindling in a cave, called Cave of Bétharam, high place of excursion for tourists to this day. It found 5,984,072 healings and miracles caused by water from this fountain. Strange coincidence of proximity between what was Bétharam and what is Lourdes today.
Another Pyrenean place, Notre-Dame de Garaison, who at the beginning of the 16th century, was built in Mauléon-Magnoac, village of the Hautes-Pyrénées 78 km from Lourdes. The testimony of a Shepherdess of twelve, witness of the apparition of the Virgin near a water fountain and marked by two miracles, transformed this place by the elevation of a chapel and a Gothic church in 1540. Miracles were so numerous that it gave him the name of Notre-Dame of healing, become more share Garaison.
Processions, pilgrimages established in these 2 Pyrenean places have over time eroded, or even displaced.
It should be noted in this area to other locations to the devotion of the Virgin Mary: Notre-Dame de Héas: Notre-Dame de Piétat in Barbazan, Notre-Dame de Piétat in Saint-Savin, Notre-Dame de Poueylaun, Notre-Dame de Bourisp, Notre-Dame de Nestes to Montoussé, Notre-Dame de funky at Aste, Notre-Dame des Vignes at Sainte-Marie-De-Siradan, Notre-Dame de Sabart in Tarascon sur Ariège, Abbey of Montserrat to Beatus, Notre-Dame de Celles in Ariège.
Saint-Severin in the 13th century until the former Augustinian Church close to the stock exchange in 1830 through Chapel of the Sisters of St. Vincent de Paul, the rue du Bac where water from the well dug at the foot of the statue allowed many miracles. Multiple cures were recorded at Notre-Dame des Victoires, which became the largest pilgrimage of the Virgin in Paris
In the 19th century, 16 years after the devotion to the Immaculate Conception in the Paris region, our Lady of La Salette, near body in Isère, takes over and the faithful offers another place of testimony of the apparition of Mary to two young shepherds. A source springs. The small fountain helped the pilgrims, the sick, travellers arrived on the plateau to drink this water. But the difficult access to this mountainous area especially for the sick will weaken the enthusiasm of the crowds for this miracle place, as much as 12 years later, in 1958, the Virgin appeared in Lourdes with the popular success that it knows.
Miracle 2014? and what a miracle in 2014?
Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, said Madiba, died December 05, 2013. A disappearance that makes cry all humanists of the world. At the age of 95, his soul is finally in peace and plane above us. His courage, his forgiveness, his fight against the political institutional system of racial segregation, apartheid, awarded the Nobel Prize for peace in 1993, illustrate the brilliance of his mind. It is and will remain a global symbol that we need every day inspire us to make the world a better, less communal, less selfish, more generous with the disadvantaged, the weak.
Six days later, on December 11, 2013, the François 1er is elected Pope person of the year 2013 by the American magazine Time. He succeeds to Barack Obama. For having changed the tone, the perception and the approach of the Church, for having left the papacy from the Vatican, for pushing the largest church in the world to face his deepest needs, for having made the balance between judgment and compassion, to finally unite the generations of young people with the oldest, Jorge Mario Bergoglio failed stance and has already marked the history of Christianity. Like St. Francis of Assisi, the saint of the poor, we hope that the voice of our Pope will radiate as deeply and with as much power as the unanimous tribute from around the world with the disappearance of Madiba.
Should you see a link, a sign between two planetary events of Christianity? The edge 2014 will be make it an extraordinary year in which peace and the reduction of poverty will be required in the most obscure leaders? Must one believe in this miracle or is this simply an illusion of the mind? Can matter! Until patients miraculously recover in 2014, let us daily to be guided by these great men and participate in our fair measure, modestly, to transmit a bit of self to others, to reach out to our loved ones, our neighbours, our friends, to strangers...

Sister Luigina Traverso thus becomes the 68th miracle of Lourdes.
But why is it the 69th miracle?
The healing of Serge François, announced in the media as the 68th miracle, had been recognized as remarkable (cured aged 56 on 12 April 2002, of a sciatic algie) in 2011 and not as unexplained by the experts of the international medical Committee of Lourdes.

Heavy cream and SOAP of Lourdes accompany the world of research, medicine and science in his quest for the truth.
Miracles of Lourdes: drinking and washing water of Lourdes
Since the Virgin Mary appeared to Bernadette Soubirous in 1858, very many people say have been healed at Lourdes through water from the cave.
In 1884, the Catholic Church has set up a structure, called 'Office of the medical findings', to analyze the statements and medically examine the rescued. This service, composed of medical experts, whose first quality is the careful, gives miraculous healing character in exceptional cases and rejects the authentication of miracle if a suspicion of a medical thesis exists.
This authentication process passes through three stages:
* Review by the Lourdes medical Bureau,
* International transfer to the medical office.
* Investigation by the diocese of origin of the healed person.
The diocese of origin of the healed person decides on the State of miracle. The meaning of healing is the main guide of the concerned Bishop (it must be a "sign from God" and not a simple healing).
68 healings have, to date, received the status of 'miraculous healing' after a process that can be spread over several years.
Official validation by Pope Benedict XVI to a sixty-eighth miracle (cure of French sister Marie Simon-Pierre's Parkinson's disease) is imminent.
The solemn blessings by priests and bishops is one of the most anticipated rites by pilgrims. Some patients allegedly cured at this precise moment, others in drinking water source, praying at the cave or, more often, after will be bathed in one of the pools.
One question arises: why so many miracle in Lourdes?
Inner peace, rest of the spirit, the purification of the body with the water of Lourdes are all tracks of reflexions; the cream of Lourdes accompanies these reflections!
Next miracle in Lourdes: when the 69th miracle of Lourdes?
Many healings are found each year after patients have visited the Marian city. All these healings are considered very seriously by the Office of the medical findings of Lourdes. The Church and medicine study drastically every element that could contradict a miraculous healing.
Several folders are being diagnosis. Serious advances to say that soon one or two healings will be added to 68 other miracles of Lourdes.
Heavy cream accompanies the research world in his quest for the truth.
The dates of the 68 miracles of Lourdes
To date , 68 miraculous healings , unexplained by science, have been recognized by the Catholic Church.
So many people claim to have been cured at Lourdes. After hundreds of miracles announced nineteenth sièce , the Catholic Church has set up a structure in 1884 (the office of the medical findings ) to examine the statements, verify and authenticate miracles. She claims to be very cautious and extremely difficult to convince as a single case wrongly authenticated by this office and then denied by the medicine could have very serious consequences in the minds of believers. The authentication process involves three major steps: review by the medical office Lourdes transfer to the international medical office, investigation by the diocese of origin of the person healed.
The meaning of healing is then the main guide of the bishop concerned (it must be a "sign of God" and not just a healing ) .
To date , 68 cures have received the status of miraculous healing after a process that can take several years.
Only the first two steps have a truly scientific character ( the last step is essentially religious in nature ) and lead to a possible declaration of office on the character not explained scientifically at the time of healing. At this stage , doctors invited to speak are not limited only to the Catholic doctors. Attending doctor may attempt to offer a natural explanation for healing.
The basic criteria considered by the medical office are: the disease must have been itself authenticated and confirmed prior to the supposed healing diagnosis, prognosis must be completely clear doctors including when it comes to injuries permanent nature or a prognosis of death and healing should be complete, immediate , without convalescence, final and without relapse.
No treatment can be considered as the cause of healing, or have contributed .
These strict criteria quickly eliminate the vast majority of statements before their consideration by the religious authorities as evidenced by the records kept at the medical office, which are freely accessible.
