Witness to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, originally known as the medal of the Immaculate Conception. Makes a perfect Christmas ornament, can be worn or held while praying ... "O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee."
Miraculous Medals will be touched to the First Class relics of St. Bernadette and St. Teresa of Calcutta after purchase.
The Saint of Calcutta knew the importance of having Mary as Our Mother. She would often pray with the sick while holding this medal as well as press it against the person who was sick showing the importance of acknowledging Mary as Mother. Often, she would press the medal on the person’s body where the pain originated. The Miraculous Medal for St. Teresa of Calcutta was a medal of charity – a symbol of God’s love for all people, most especially the every now moment of our lives." Tom Perna
Miraculous Medals also come with the special gift of a laminated Miraculous Medal Cape Card featuring a cloth that has touched the miraculous statue of Our Lady of the Cape and the tombs of Fr. Luc Desilets and Fr. Paul Vachon, blessed by "then" rector of Canada's National Marian Shrine, Bishop Pierre-Olivier Tremblay, OMI and a rose fragment blessed on the Confraternity Altar.
Fr. Paul Vachon was the diocesan priest who had the Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary established at Cap-de-la-Madeleine in 1694 by the Master General of the Dominican Order, Antonin Cloche, OP.
Fr. Luc Desilets found the pig chewing on a rosary in 1867 and reestablished enrollment in the Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary leading to the miracle of the ice bridge, the prodigy of the eyes, the 1904 canonical crowning and a million pilgrims visiting the Cape in 1954!
