In need of a special grace, a blessing – a miracle, even?
I invite you to join us tomorrow as we start the Novena to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal!
You see, the Miraculous Medal is just that: MIRACULOUS.
By itself it is nothing…a stamped trinket…
But what is stamped on it and who ordered it to be made… makes the whole difference!
One night in a convent of the Rue de Bac in Paris, Catherine, a young novice, awoke to the gentle call of an angel…
Following him, she came to the chapel, and presently heard the “swish, swish” of soft silk…
BEHOLD, there was the Blessed Lady sitting on a chair!
In two joyous bounds Catherine was kneeling by her, hands resting trustingly on her Mother’s knees!
Among several things, Our Lady asked that Catherine have a medal struck, showing our Mother of Mercy showering graces on those who ask for them, and to wear her medal as a sign of trust and devotion to her.
As people began to wear the medal, so many were the graces, blessings, and astounding miracles attached to its usage that it was coined THE MIRACULOUS MEDAL.
So join us tomorrow as we start the Miraculous Medal Novena which ends on the Feast of the Miraculous Medal, November 27th. And be assured that you and your loved ones are included in my own personal novena intentions.
