The Miraculous Medal

How can a little piece of metal be called “miraculous”?

In November 2011, the Pilgrim Center of Hope organized and led a Marian Pilgrimage to Fatima, Lourdes and Shrines of  Paris.  One of those Shrines in Paris is located in the center of town on a street called Rue de Bac.  It is there, where Mary, the Mother of God appeared to a nun in 1830 and gave her a unique mission – to have a medal made with the image Mary gave her.   Learn why this mission since 1830 has been instrumental for thousands of healings, conversions and hope!  Hear about a powerful conversion and this special sacramental, the miraculous medal.

The Prayer of John Paul II in the Chapel of Rue De Bac

«Oh Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee. »

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to you. O Mary, this was the prayer that you gave to Saint Catherine Labouré in the Chapel of the Apparitions, more than one hundred and fifty years ago! […]
This invocation, engraved on the Miraculous Medal, is now worn and repeated by the faithful throughout the world!

Blessed are you among women!

You are intimately associated with the work of our Redemption, associated with the Cross of our Savior, your heart has been pierced, next to his heart. And now, in the glory of your Son, you never cease to intercede for us, poor sinners.

You watch over the Church for you are its Mother. You watch over each of your Children. From God, you obtain for us, all graces that are symbolized by the rays of light which radiate from your open hands, and the only condition that you demand of us is that we approach with the confidence, the hardiness, and the simplicity of a child. And it is thus that you bring us before your Divine Son.

John Paul II (1980)
