    One thought on “The Song of Bernadette”

    1. I'm absolutely speechless (which doesn't happen often) after reading The Song of Bernadette. This lyrical account of St. Bernadette was profoundly moving and well worth reading.

    2. Whoever you are, gentle reader, I recommend this book to you. It is one of those universal classics that powerfully, skillfully, and with thoroughgoing integrity, addresses a truly universal phenomenon: the encounter of mortal, corporeal, limited human beings with the numinous.That's something we all share, no matter our language or religion. One day we are walking along, leading our workaday lives, and -- something happens. Something that just does not fit in what we can conceive of as real. We [...]

    3. Wow! This book style is what I have been looking for all my life. I struggle through fiction books. This non-fiction story based on real events, people, places was wonderful to read. I just had to say that because when I started reading it, I realized that what the author was writing about was taking certain liberties. I did some research and found that the author focused on facts that would make the book fictional based on interviews. It is like a movie based on actual events. I LOVED IT!!!!!OK [...]

    4. Description (from the foreword by George Weigel): The Song of Bernadette By Franz Werfel This is the classic work that tells the true story surrounding the miraculous visions of St. Bernadette Soubirous at Lourdes, France in 1858. Werfel, a highly respected anti-Nazi writer from Vienna, became a Jewish refugee who barely escaped death in 1940, and wrote this moving story to fulfill a promise he made to God. While hiding in the little village of Lourdes, Werfel felt the Nazi noose tightening, and [...]

    5. For non-Catholics who are interested in religion, miracles are a major question. If they really occur, our world view has to be entirely different than if they do not. Werfel, a Jew, presents two questions for us in his superb novel. First, was Bernadette honest or a fraud? We can never know if she really saw an apparition of the Virgin Mary, but Werfel concludes she was totally honest in her belief that she had seen Mary. Second, did the miraculous healings attributed to the spring located at t [...]

    6. Bernadette Soubirous was only fourteen when she claimed to have apparitions of the Virgin Mary. The Author, Franz Werfel, captures Bernadette's story, illuminating her life before, during, and after the apparitions.Bernadette, a pour, sickly girl living in Lourdes, France, was called a liar when she told her closest friend of the woman, "too beautiful for words." To Bernadette's dismay, the word of her visions spread swiftly through the still developing town. Officials tried in Vain to put a sto [...]

    7. Hard to believe that in 12 years of Catholic school I was not required to read this book. I loved the story, and learned a lot, but I could have cut 200 pages from this 550+ page book and not missed a thing. At times the detail was excruciating and confusing. A "cast list" at the front of the book was extremely helpful in keeping straight all the people involved in Bernadette's life and the miracles at Lourdes. That being said, the second half was much better and easier to read, the story of Ber [...]

    8. I had this book on my shelf for a while. I always thought is would be kind of sappy book for children. I was wrong. It was not what I expected at all. It helps to know that the author, Franz Werfel, a Jew from Vienna, was on the run from the Nazis and found temporary shelter in Lourdes. He was clearly moved by the story of Bernadette and her visions. But what makes the book so interesting is that so many of the characters express their doubts and disgust and what they saw was a spectacle, includ [...]

    9. A Jewish man on the run from Nazis. He hides in Lourdes France and learns about the Marian apparitions. He promises God that, if he can find safety, he will write a book about Bernadette and the Lady. This is historical fiction. Inspirational.

    10. Ho deciso di leggere questo libro non soltanto perché prima o poi mi piacerebbe andare a Lourdes, ma anche perché mi era piaciuto molto lo stile, il linguaggio e la capacità di narrare un evento storico de I quaranta giorni del Mussa Dagh dello stesso autore.Il canto di Bernadette è scorrevole, commovente, e si ha un quadro completo e dettagliato della vita e le apparizioni di questa santa.Ne consiglierei la lettura anche a chi non è interessato a Lourdes o a santi cattolici perché è comu [...]

    11. This was my third reading of The Song of Bernardette. Her story fascinated me from early childhood when I discovered we had some trivial details in common - birthday, year of the visions was 100 years before my birth, and my own godmother was named Bernardette. More importantly she herself was a young insignificant girl but worthy of seeing the beautiful lady, whom others deemed to be the Blessed Mother. Despite my cynicism of most things religious, I have never rejected my belief in the power o [...]

    12. My review will be inadequate to describe this masterpiece. After reading of the events, hearing from Bernadette, the believers, the disbelievers and skeptics the aftermath hits home with a loud ring of truth. The chapters 'I never loved' and the one following 'I love' are two of the most spiritually moving chapters I have ever read. I feel like the miracle has continued from the water of the grotto to the words on the pages in those chapters. I quite frankly, did not anticipate writing those wor [...]

    13. The author does an amazing job of turning this true story into a novel. While the story of St. Bernadette can tell itself, this book was still enjoyable just to relive the events that transpired in Lourdes and to think about how the personal interaction and behind the scenes events might have occurred. The characters are fully developed and engaging, the conversation is believable, and the author seemed to capture the dynamics of the town. I was slightly disappointed in the actual events at the [...]

    14. I remember seeing a movie with this title when I was a youngster in Catholic grade school. This first English edition of the book has always been in my parents' bookcase -- which I was emptying out -- and I decided to read it. The book is the story of Saint Bernadette of Lourdes, France, to whom the Blessed Virgin Mother of God appeared several times in a grotto. The Virgin asked Bernadette, then a teen, to tell people to pray for sinners. Mary identified herself to Bernadette as "I am the Immac [...]

    15. برایم عجیب است که چرا کتابی به این سادگی، مرا این چنین مجذوب خود کردداستان تنها در مورد یک اتفاق،پیشامد یا معجزه است، اما به خوبی به آن پر و بال داده شده و پخته شده است. وضع زندگی طبقه ی فرودست فرانسویان در اواخر قرن نوزدهم و همچنین اعتقادات مردم و تاثیر آن در زندگی شان به خوبی د [...]

    16. I'm not Roman Catholic, but I found this tale of a young girl who saw visions of The Virgin and who had difficulty convincing the adults around her that she was telling the truth very moving. I could identify with the girl's feelings of powerlessness as I was a young teen when I read it. Coulnd't put it down. Even at 14, I chalked up her experience to religion-induced hysteria, but I still empathized with her inability to get a sincere hearing.

    17. I had no idea that the author was Jewish. He was a refugee hiding out in Lourdes and was so inspired and moved by St Bernadette that he promised God that he would write her story if he survived the war. It's a beautifully and incredibly moving story. It's so much better than the movie. I'm glad I read it.

    18. I first read this historical novel about St. Bernadette when I was 8 years old, and I was completely enthralled.

    19. Read this just after coming back from a short stay in Tarbes and visiting Lourdes.Realised that the author was Jewish, but reads as if a Catholic apologia

    20. This is a great touching story. It is the true story of the visions of St. Bernadette Soubirous and takes readers to Lourdes, France in 1858. You don't have to be religious to enjoy this story. But you will probably find yourself amazed and touched.

    21. Die Geschichte von Bernadette Soubirous, die Franz Werfel nicht bloß schreibt, sondern lobsingend erzählt ist zwar keine strenge historische Darstellung wie sie sich ein Geschichtswissenschaftler vorstellt, sondern eine sehr einfühlsame lebendige Schilderung der Ereignisse um die Erscheinungen der „Dame“ in Lourdes.Im Vorwort stellt Werfel seine Ansprüche an dieses, sein Werk klar vor und beansprucht die Wahrheit der denkwürdigen Ereignisse nicht verändert zu haben und nur dort „das [...]

    22. There are no concepts in this story except those casually alluded to in the descriptions of the many many characters. The humility and honesty and straightforward-ness of Bernadette triumph over the self-importance, manipulation and calculation of the town and church officials. The perseverance and devotion of Bernadette triumph over the self-consciousness, pettiness and materiality of her family and classmates. Of course there’s casual sexism, ableism, racism and classism sprinkled throughout [...]

    23. I had read two book about Bernadette, one about her life and one about a present day journalist on a work tour of Lourdes to discover what is going on there, constructed along the lines one has come to expect from most well constructed such works - events that can be called miracles or coincidences, keeping all readers (and for films, viewers) pleased with their interpretation while keeping the author (or producer etc in case of film) out of trouble with everyone. Life of Bernadette, the peasant [...]
