Above first left you have the Commissioner Jacomet the chief of police who was suspicious and merciless when it came to Bernadette and her storys of the apparitions, she was under constant surveillance.

Parish Farther Peyramale was the person most involved in the events that took place in the grotto, he inspired in Bernadette great fear and respect. Bernadette went to him 4 times with the request to build a chapel, but he did not belive in her words and he requested that Bernadette asked who is this Lady. once he believed in Bernadette he became a real supporter in the events of the Grotto and the construction of the Crypt and the Basilica of Our Lady in Lourdes.

Jacques Vital Dutour public prosecutor was convinced that Bernadette suffered hallucinations or was paid for the storys that came from the Grotto.
