Miraculous Medal Blue Enameled
Miraculous Medal 1″
The Miraculous Medal was introduced to the world by St. Catherine Laboure’, a novice with the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent De Paul in France. The Blessed Mother asked that this image be put on a medal saying all who wear it will receive great graces.
The Miraculous Medal (French: Médaille miraculeuse), also known as the Medal of Our Lady of Grace, is a devotional medal, the design of which was originated by Saint Catherine Labouré following her apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Rue du Bac, Paris, France. It was made by goldsmith Adrien Vachette.
This medal was purchased by Margaret Ann Lembo in the actual location where Mary of the Miraculous Medal appeared.
“On a personal note, I learned about Ladybug as a child from my mother. She was the first to inform me that this charming little insect is also known as Mary beetle or Our Lady’s beetle. They got this name from a story dating back to the Middle Ages when food crops were being ravaged by insects. Farmers and villagers prayed to Mother Mary for help, and very soon, ladybugs arrived and ate the offending insects. Therefore, on a spiritual level, when Ladybug shows up in the garden of your life, it is a message to open your sacred heart and petition the blessings and help from Mother Mary or the Divine Feminine. When Ladybug flies into your life, know that you are blessed with good luck and all that is good.”
