A nun whose recovery from decades of spinal problems was declared a miracle has insisted she is “not a star” but just a “little sister” glad to be able to walk freely again.

A French bishop declared on Sunday that Bernadette Moriau’s recovery after she visited the Catholic shrine in Lourdes was a miracle.

Alessandro de Franciscis of the Lourdes Office of Medical Observations said on Tuesday he led the investigation into her cure and is “totally convinced” there is no medical explanation.
