Quote/s of the Day – 28 November – The Memorial of St Catherine Labouré DC (1806-1876) Virgin, Religious Sister of the Daughters of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul and the Marian visionary of the Miraculous Medal.
THE PROMISES OF THE MEDAL
When Our Lady appeared to
Saint Catherine Labouré
on 27 November 1830,
rays of light flowed from
the rings (made of precious stones)
on her fingers.
However, some of the stones on the rings did not shine.
Our Lady explained:
“These rays symbolise the graces
I shed upon those who ask for them.
The gems from which rays do not fall
are the graces for which souls omit to ask.”
“Graces will be poured out
on all those, small, or great,
who ask for them
with confidence and fervour. … ”
The Blessed Virgin Mary
to Saint Catherine Labouré DC (1806-1876)
“If you listen to Him,
He will speak to you also
because with the good God,
it is necessary to speak
and to listen.”
