Although not on the General Roman Calendar, today, Tuesday, November 27, 2018, is the Feast of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. Although not observed universally on a mandatory basis, this feast is is nevertheless an important one to commemorate as this powerful sacramental is yet another sign of the love that pours out from the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces, despite our own ingratitude and infidelities. [This feast is one that, traditionally, had been celebrated solemnly in the Diocese of Brooklyn, and it was within the boundaries of that diocese that I was born on Saturday, November 24, 1951, three days before this feast day that year.]
This reflection was written in 2010 and published in two parts. It was three years ago now that it was combined into one part and revised slightly in a few places.
An original article is in the process of being written while I work on the book project simultaneously.
Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, pray for us.
Saint Catherine Laboure, pray for us.
