While there have been more than 7,000 miraculous recoveries attributed to the intercession of Our Lady of Lourdes at the French shrine, the Catholic Church has confirmed a total of 70 medical miracles there. Sister Bernadette Moriau is the 70th, cured of cauda equina syndrome, a disorder of the nerves and lower spine when she visited Lourdes in 2008. After a ten-year study of her case, the Church recognized it as a miracle.
