The Description of the Lady
Years later, Joseph Barbadette, who later afterwards became a priest
of the Congregation of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate recounted:
She was young and tall of stature, clad in a garment of deep blue,
... Her dress was covered with brilliant gold stars. The sleeves were
ample and long. She wore slippers of the same blue as the dress,
ornamented with gold bows. On the head was a black veil half covering
the forehead, concealing the hair and ears, and falling over the
Above this was a crown resembling a diadem, higher in front
than elsewhere, and widening out at the sides. A red line encircled the
crown at the middle. Her hands were small and extended toward us as in
the 'miraculous medal.' Her face had the most exquisite delicacy and a
smile of ineffable sweetness. The eyes, of unutterable tenderness, were
fixed on us. Like a true mother, she seemed happier in looking at us
than we in contemplating.
