St. Catherine Laboure

  /   Friday November 28, 2003  

Some time ago, we had a meeting of our Frassati Society where several of us took turns talking about different sacramentals. I chose the Miraculous Medal. I wear one along with a Divine Mercy medal. Of course, a large part of this talk was devoted to St. Catherine Laboure.

The part that most amazes me about her is that she never told anyone except her spiritual director and confessor about the visions until the end of her life. I know that I would have likely said “Hey everyone! Let me tell you about what I saw!” Still more amazing is the fact that the medals were made and sent out without anyone knowing she had received the revelation.

Today, you can visit the Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal in a small town named Perryville, Missouri. It’s a little more than an hour south of St. Louis on I-55. It’s a small, but beautiful shrine. It’s a perfect stop on the way to The Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows, and it is far more beautiful.
