St. Catherine Laboure and The Miraculous Medal

ST. CATHERINE LABOURE AND THE MIRACULOUS MEDAL St. Catherine Labouré was blessed with apparitions of Mary Immaculate, to which we owe the famous Miraculous Medal. For the forty-six years (from the year of the apparitions until her death), only she and her confessor knew who it was to whom the Miraculous Medal was revealed, despite many pressures she received to reveal the secret. The fact that Catherine kept her secret for so long created a sense of mystery, not just in the reflections on her life, but during her life. Read Marillac Solitude-of-Saint-Catherine-Laboure.pdf (
