The Miraculous medal is well known for its miracles. Maybe you or someone you know has a story to tell – whether big or small. Our dearly beloved Mother cares for her children. It is a very good idea not to ignore the blessings from Heaven. Wear a Miraculous medal round your neck. I am sure that this Corona Virtus will not be the last disease/plague that will be imposed on us. We must never cease asking our Blessed Mother for protection.
“Almost 200 years ago Our Blessed Mother instructed Saint Catherine Laboure to “have a medal struck upon this model. Those who wear it will receive great graces, especially if they wear it around their neck.” Our Blessed Mother also told Catherine, “Now it must be given to the whole world and to every person.” (https://churchpop.com/2016/03/03/5-reasons-wear-miraculous-medal/ )
“Those who wear it will receive great graces, especially if they wear it around their neck”. The miraculous healing power of Our Lady’s Miraculous Medal at the time of the 1832 Paris Cholera outbreakand in light of today’s anxiety around Covid 19.
“As the first medals were being made, a terrible epidemic of cholera, coming from Eastern Europe, struck Paris. The disease first appeared on March 26, 1832, and carried on until the middle of the year. By April 1, seventy-nine people had died; on the 2nd, 168; on the 3rd, 216. In this way the death toll rose until reaching 861 on April 9.
In total, the official records say that 18,400 people died. In reality, the number was much greater because the official statistics and the media purposely under-estimated the numbers to avoid even greater panic.
On 30 June 1832, the first 1,500 medals were delivered by Vachette House and the Daughters of Charity began distributing them among those afflicted. The epidemic receded immediately and a series of prodigies began that very quickly made the Miraculous Medal world famous.”
