Miraculous Medal

Miraculous Medal

On November 27, 1989, Ivan’s prayer group was meeting at the Blue Cross at the base of Apparition Mountain at 10:00 p.m. This message was given to Marija, who was standing in for Ivan. Our Lady came joyful and said:

“These days, I want you to pray in a special way for the salvation of souls. Today is the feast day of the Miraculous Medal, and I want that you pray, in a special way, for the salvation of those people who are carrying this Miraculous Medal. I want you to spread the devotion and the carrying of this medal, so that more souls may be saved, and that you pray in a special way.”

It was on November 27, 1830 that Our Lady had appeared to St. Catherine Laboure in her convent on Rue de Bac in Paris that Our Lady had first shown Catherine the medal She wanted her to strike. Her bishop gave permission for this, but required that no one was to know its origin. If it was from God, the medal would be blessed. As soon as the medal was distributed, miracles began to happen in the lives of many people; so many miracles that the medal came to be known as the “Miraculous Medal.” The Miraculous Medal is second only to the Rosary in popularity with traditional Catholics. This was a message that was hidden for many years and only recently came to light. It was beautiful to hear Our Lady speak of the Miraculous Medal on its Feast Day, encouraging the faithful to spread also this devotion and to pray for those carrying the medal.
