 Our Description

 

Saint Catherine Laboure of the Miraculous Medal by Rev. Joseph I. Dirvin, C.M.

 

This is the story of the saint through whom we received the Miraculous Medal.  No sacramental since the Rosary has had such an impact on the Church, and none has ever been diffused in such incredible numbers, with many millions of people all over the world wearing the Medal within a few years.  Since 1933, when it was exhumed and found miraculously preserved, the body of St. Catherine Laboure (1806-1876) has lain incorrupt at 140, rue du Bac, Paris, in the Motherhouse of the Sisters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, venerated by thousands of pilgrims each year.

Who was this St. Catherine Laboure, who during her lifetime chose to remain entirely unknown, except to her confessor, as the visionary of the Miraculous Medal?  To answer this question, the author spent 10 years in research, studying many documents never before available to her biographers and carrying out his investigation in Paris, Rome and Catherine's own village.  What he has produced here is a definitive life of the Saint which is at once highly readable and inspiring.
