Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal : history

The Chapel of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal was built in 1813 and blessed in 1815. It owes its notoriety to St. Catherine Labouré who has seen the Blessed Virgin three times. Born in 1806, Saint Catherine Labouré, felt very early the call of religion but it is only at the age of 24, that her father agrees to let her integrate the Daughters of Charity. A few months after her arrival, she leaves for a seminary in Paris in The Chapel located rue du Bac.

On July 18, 1830, after having prayed to see the Virgin, she was awakened at 11:30 pm by the voice of a child: “The Blessed Virgin is waiting for you”. The young woman follows the child: “Here is the Blessed Virgin”. At these words, she sees the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus Christ, sitting in an armchair and approaches to put her hands on her knees. On November 27, 1830, it is in the Chapel, at 5:30 pm that Saint Catherine Labouré sees the Virgin, under the painting of Saint Joseph. During their talk, Mary asks the woman to create a medal, of which she gives her the model. This is the history of the original medal even if it was not built at that time.

In 1832, during the Cholera epidemic, Sister Catherine Labouré informed Father Aladel of the insistence and dissatisfaction of the Blessed Virgin regarding the medal. The latter is thus minted and distributed. Healings and miracles follow immediately. Hence the nickname of Miraculous Medal given by Parisians in the 19th century. Thousands, then millions of medals will then be minted and distributed.

In December 1830, the last apparition of the Virgin is behind the altar: “You will not see me anymore”. On January 30, 1831, the seminary came to the end and Saint Catherine Labouré joined the Hospice Community of Enghien where she remained until her death on December 31, 1876.
