Our Lady of Lourdes first appeared in Lourdes, France in 1858 to a woman by the name of Bernadette. She continued to appear many times after that, always dressed in a similar fashion to her first apparition. It is said that the stream where the Blessed Mother appeared holds miraculous healing powers. The Our Lady of Lourdes statue honors the blessed mother and features a depiction of her wearing a simple robe, with her palms pressed together in prayer. The statue is made of high-quality vinyl and is ideal for outdoor use.
