Miraculous Medals - Full Listing of our catalog

The Miraculous Medal comes from the origin of Zoe Labore, later known as St. Catherine who happened to be a member of the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul. The Virgin Mary appeared three different times on July 18, November 27, and a short time after that for her last appearance to St. Catherine in 1830. The first time Mary showed her self to St. Catherine she was asleep but was woken by her ‘Guardian Angel’ and she told her to go to the chapel where Mother Mary was. For many hours they talked and Mary said to Catherine, “My child, I am going to give you a mission.” When Sister Catherine saw the Blessed Mother on the second appearance she said that the Mother of Jesus was standing on a globe as well as holding another globe in her hands. She had these rays coming from her fingers that appeared as precious stones as rings. These wonderful rays are told to be symbols of graces given to all who ask. She also said that around the Figure of Mother Mary was a oval shaped frame with the words “O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee”; and the letter ‘M’ was in the back along with a cross and under that was the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, the former was surrounded by the crown of thorns and the pierced by a sword.

 

            Sister Catherine was told to make a medal that looked like the one in her vision as a promise of grace would be given to those that were to wear it. She confessed what had happened to her and explained all of the appearances to the confessor, they together worked together to accomplish Mary’s instructions. 47 years later she revealed receiving the Medal. The church approving the medals, they were made in the year 1832 and handed out in Paris. The blessings were bestowed upon those who wore the medals almost immediately. People began calling this medal the “Miraculous” Medal because of the many miracles from patience, forgiveness, repentance, and faith. This medal is nothing that has to do with superstition or magic of any sort. It is simply a testimony of trusting in your faith and prayer.

 

St. Catherine is enshrined in the same chapel that she visited with the Blessed Mother. She is in a glass coffin and is uncorrupted. The Miraculous Medal has become a staple of faith for Catholics all over the world. Many believe in the power of the medal and how the feel the grace that God bestowed on their life from wearing the medal. Often people that wear the Miraculous Medal have a great faith in the devotion to the Blessed Mother and frequently part of the devotion is wearing the medal.

 

In addition to the Miraculous Medal the believers also wear a brown scapular as well. This is meant to strengthen the devotion to the Blessed Mother, bringing far more graces.
