Fr. Aidan R. Rooney, C.M. presents: three things about Catherine Labouré.
St. Catherine Labouré
The mission of the Children of Mary, and its successor the Vincentian Marian Youth Movement, was confided by God to St. Catherine Labouré, through the Blessed Virgin Mary’s apparitions. On this date in 1847, Pontifical approval of the Children of Mary was obtained.
Viewing Mary not just in that one marvelous moment of the Annunciation but in the context of a lifetime of discipleship.
Pilgrimage with Mary – On the 190th Anniversary of the Apparitions of the Blessed Mother to Saint Catherine Labouré
On Wednesday, November 11th, the Holy Father will bless the sacred image of the Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal in the Vatican on the occasion of the 190th anniversary of the apparitions to Saint Catherine Labouré.
Why did Jesus tell them not to tell anyone? Was it possible he realized that at that point, they would jump to wrong conclusions?
The Miraculous Medal Shrine in Philadelphia is proud to announce its Saint ALIVE program, in which St. Catherine Labouré comes to life, sharing the story of Mary and the Miraculous Medal.
It is “not that Catherine Labouré was holy because she saw the Blessed Virgin; she was holy because she was faithful to the mission given her to do.”
The Central Association of the Miraculous Medal unveiled a thoroughly revised website. It is a major step forward in using digital media to spread devotion to Mary.
If St. Catherine maintained silence, how were the People of God made aware of the Miraculous Medal?
The medal now known as the Miraculous Medal was originally called the Medal of the Immaculate Conception.
I never thought I would experience an apparition!
The mission that the Blessed Mother gave St. Catherine Labouré had her leave the solitude that fostered her asceticism, at certain critical moments in her life, in order to bring Marian devotion to the Church.
