A brief history of the Miraculous Medal

May is the month dedicated to Mary, Our Blessed Mother.  Though I usually wear my Ave Maria ring every day, during the month of May I will wear one of the four Miraculous Medals I own.

What is a Miraculous Medal you ask?  Here is a brief history of the Miraculous Medal:

My husband is not one to wear any jewelry except a watch and his wedding ring, however he might be willing to put a medal in his wallet.  If the men in your life are like my husband, consider gifting the medal anyway with the suggestion of keeping it in their wallet or attaching it to their key ring.

 For more information about St. Catherine Laboure and the Miraculous Medal, go to The Chapel of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.

If you need a reason or two to why you should wear a Miraculous Medal, Prayer Wine Chocolate has five reasons why she wears one.

Please join me and other Catholics (and some not-so-Catholics!) on my Facebook page and on Twitter.

I also write for Catholic365.com on occasion, and CatholicMom.com every 4th Thursday of the month so take a moment and check them out.
