Saint Michael Garicoits

Founder of the Order of the Sacred Heart of Betharram, he was an early supporter of Bernadette of Lourdes, before her apparitions were accepted as genuine. His body is on display in the reliquary chapel behind the church of Betharram, an ancient Marian shrine, and an overwhelming visual experience, Spanish High Baroque in the most high and baroque style imaginable.

 

We visited here with the Society of Mary (Anglican) pilgrimage to Lourdes in September 2008, and were fortunate enough to celebrate a Sung Mass here.
