I am currently in the process of migrating the content shared here to a series of new websites hosted at

As you explore this site, you may find links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal. For this I apologize. I am very working hard behind the scenes to restore those pages along with a link to their homes on my new website where they can be viewed in full.

Feast Day of St Bernadette

Today is the feast day of Saint Bernadette. If you think the visions of Saint Bernadette have no connection to magick and the Goddess think again - here is an alternative version to the traditional story:

On the cold morning of February 11, 1858, there was no wood in the Soubirous home, and no fire to warm them. Bernadette set out with her younger sister Toinette, and a neighbor girl, Jean Abadie, to scrounge in the forest for kindling. Maybe they would get lucky and find a rag or a bone to sell....

... I am so sorry, but this post has been moved to my new website, The Pagan Calendar, and can be found in its entirety here: Feast Day of St Bernadette

Marvellous, thought provoking article. For a long time, I too have been convinced Bernadette is not what who / the catholic church portray her as.

Thank you.
