Trésor Bleu Exclusive - RARE
Miraculous Medal made shortly after the first run of medals. We know that in the early days, after the Apparition to Catherine Labouré and before the finalization of the medal and official doctrinarian by the Catholic Church, there were many variations produced in France. We know this medal pre-dates the final version, because of the verbiage on the front of the medal, and, more indicatively, the 24 stars on this medal on the reverse, instead of the 12 stars representing the 12 Apostles. The medal is paired with a 9mm gold filled ring hanging from your choice of chains and a modern 24k thick gold plated pounded cross. Medal itself is 1.1 inches in length, .6 inches in width. It is made from a copper alloy, indicative of the time. A wonderful piece of rare history and devotion.
The Miraculous Medal (French: Médaille Miraculeuse), also known as the Medal of the Immaculate Conception. The origins of the miraculous medal dates back to 1830 when Catherine Labouré, a young nun in Paris, saw a vision of Mary repeatedly. In each vision, she saw the Blessed Mother presented to her as standing inside an oval frame with an inscription around the frame that said, "O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee." The Virgin Mary could be seen in the vision as standing on a globe with rays of light coming from her hands in the direction of the globe. The nun's repeated visions also showed her that some of the rays of light were not touching the globe like the rest. When she asked Mary about these rays, she reportedly answered the nun by saying, "Those are the graces for which people forget to ask." Catherine Laboué also reported that Mary asked her to bring these visions and words to others in the form of a protective medallion so that, "All who wear them will receive great graces," according to Mary.The pendant is set on a gold filled 1mm chain, your choice of length. The emblem on the back is a classic Mariam emblem with stars representing the apostles. Height of Miraculous Medal is .9 inches, width is 5/8 of an inch.
