About Miraculous Medal
Are you acquainted with the “Miraculous Medal”?
Perhaps you look with some disdain upon a medal as an ornament for a young lady or a charm for a spinster.
For some people it hardly means more than that. But for others it is a reminder that recalls the thought of our Savior, of the Blessed Virgin, or of some Saint, for the purpose of honoring and invoking them, and of remembering promises made to them.
In such a practice there is no more superstition than in the use of the crucifix. We are not pure spirits; our souls are united to bodies. We need material things to remind us of spiritual realities.
