Friends of the Rosary:
Today, Saturday, November 27, in some regions, the feast of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal is celebrated. The Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to St. Catherine Laboure in 1830 in Paris, instructing her to make a very special medal. All who wear it would receive many graces.
The medal showed Mary holding a golden globe symbolizing the world. On her fingers, there were rings emitting rays of light and graces. At her feet, She stood the serpent’s head. Framing the image in an oval were the words: “O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.”
St. Catherine then saw an image of an M upon which was a Cross. Underneath the M was Our Lord’s heart crowned with thorns, and Our Lady’s heart pierced by a sword. Surrounding this image were twelve stars.
Jesus, I Trust In You!
Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal and St. Catherine Laboure Pray for Us!
