The Good Catholic series Heroic Virtue focuses on the lives of the saints and the virtues that they model. One of these saints is Saint Bernadette Soubirous, whose life was an example of patience—but not necessarily in the way we might think.
Bernadette Soubirous was born in Lourdes, France in 1844. Her once-successful father fell into hard times due to a failing economy and the family was forced to live in the small, dank, one-room cell of a former prison.
Question for thought:
