The Story of the Miraculous Medal - A Helping Hand from Heaven


By Armando Alexandre dos Santos

In 1830, during the apparitions in the chapel on Rue du Bac in Paris, the Holy Virgin presented the Miraculous Medal to Saint Catherine Labouré: "Everyone who wears it, when it is blessed, will receive great graces especially if they wear it around their neck.  Graces will be abundant for those who wear it with confidence."

At the time of St. Catherine Labouré's death, the distribution of the medal in the world has surpassed the one billion mark.  The innumerable conversions, cures and cases of extraordinary protection, quickly led to it's being called the "Miraculous Medal."

Wearing and disseminating the Miraculous Medal means placing oneself under the protection of the Most Holy Virgin.  It means placing oneself under the sign of the Immaculate and taking a stand in face of the troubles and indifference facing the modern world.  

"The whole world will be overwhelmed by misfortunes of all kinds...All will seems lost, but I shall be with you," the Holy Virgin promised Saint Catherine, who repeated this prophecy until the end of her life.

This important campaign to spread this story and the Miraculous Medal is made possible thanks to all America Needs Fatima friends and benefactors.
