History of the Miraculous Medal:

The Story Behind the Medal

The history of this beloved medal is based on the story of St. Catherine Labouré , who was given a mission by the Virgin Mary in Paris, France. Mary came to Catherine holding a golden globe, which was said to represent the world. As she clutched the globe, rays of light beamed from the gem-encrusted rings placed on her fingers. Some of the gems were not shining, and Virgin Mary said “Those are the graces for which people forget to ask.”

She then told Catherine to have these images made into a medal that would allow those who wear it around their neck to receive great graces. Catherine did as she was told and brought the images to her confessor. The first medals were made in 1832 and Mary’s blessings soon started to spread across Paris.

The Miraculous Medal Meaning

 

A common misconception about the Miraculous Medal is that it’s a “good luck” charm. Instead of luck, this medal's power is evidence of the wearer’s faith and trust in his or her own prayers. Upon a closer look of the design, we can uncover the message St. Catherine received from Virgin Mary nearly two centuries ago:

The Front of the Medal

 

The image shows Mary’s arms outstretched with rays of light shining from her fingertips. The frame around the medal says, O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee. Mary is seen standing on top of the globe in her place as the Queen of Heaven and Earth.

The Back of the Medal

 

On the backside of the medal you will find twelve stars. These stars are said to represent the twelve Apostles. As the first letter in Mary, the “M” is connected to the cross to symbolize her relationship with Jesus and the world. The cross with a bar underneath represents Christ, our redemption, and the earth. Finally, two hearts that are dedicated to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
