On a recent buying trip to Loreto, Italy, we found this beautifully detailed Miraculous Medal. This Miraculous Medal is faithful to the original pattern and comes packaged in a bag with 100 medals, making it a wonderful gift idea for Confirmation or Church groups. The Miraculous Medal was designed by the Blessed Virgin herself in 1830, and given to Sr. (now Saint) Catherine Laboure to spread the devotion, with a promise of winning extraordinary graces for those who wear the medal and pray for Mary’s help and intercession. The front of the medal features Mary surrounded by the inscription, "O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee." On the reverse of the medal is the letter "M" for Mary at the feet of the cross of Christ and intertwined with it, surrounded by a crown of twelve stars, and with the Immaculate Heart and the Sacred Heart side by side. Special graces are granted to those who wear the Miraculous Medal as a necklace.
