Eighth Apparition – Wednesday 24 February 1858

Bernadette re-attends at the Grotto and a crowd of some 250 people watch Bernadette having the Apparition and it is clear that she is sad and tears run down her face. The message she was given:

Penance! Penance! Penance! Pray to God for sinners.
Go, kiss the ground for the conversion of sinners.
