Called to be Mary in the World
As members of the Miraculous Medal Association, we are the inheritors of the apparition on November 27, 1830, to St. Catherine Laboure. At that event, Mary asked us to spread her devotion and message to all.I would like to share with you some of my reflections and thoughts about what that message means to us as members of the Miraculous Medal Association.
One of the most powerful things that Mary said at that apparition on November 27 was: “Come to the foot of the altar, where you will receive many blessings”. It is powerful because the words themselves speak of receiving the power of grace. We who come to the altar with this medal on us will be given blessings.
Blessings from God are the power of divine love. With these graces, God will powerfully change our hearts to be like Mary’s heart. Her Heart only wanted God and God’s will. Her heart was totally full of God’s life.
