French Vintage, 1830
"O Mary, Conceived Without Sin, Pray for Us Who Have Recourse to Thee"
The Blessed Virgin first appeared to Saint Catherine Laboure. In that vision, the Virgin Mary showed Saint Catherine the design of a double-sided medal with an image of Mary on one side and a letter “M” with a cross and twelve stars on the other, representing the Apostles. The Miraculous Medal is a favorite of the SfS family and is perfect to wear proudly for special grace. Saint Mary Catherine Laboure’s body lies incorrupt at the Chapel of the Miraculous Medal in Paris, France.
Rob, our founder, spends a lot of time travelling around Europe on the hunt for new medals to offer. Throughout the years he has gathered and since started quite the vintage medal collection. We are excited to share them with everyone and begin offering them for sale!
