Saint Catherine Laboure Holy Card
This holy card of Saint Catherine Laboure, a Daugther of Charity to whom the Blessed Mother appeared and gave the Miraculous Medal, features an image from a vintage French holy card. On the back of this holy card is a quote from St. Catherine and the Miraculous Medal prayer.
Catherine Laboure's mother died when she was only nine years old, so St. Catherine took the Virgin Mary to be her mother, and prayed daily that one day she would be able to see the Blessed Mother Mary. In November of 1830 when she was a nun living in the motherhouse of the Sisters of Charity in Paris, her guardian angel awoke her and told her to get dressed for the Mother of God was waiting for her. With great joy Sister Catherine Laboure knelt before the Blessed Mother with her hands on the Virgin Mary's lap. The Mother of God told her that she was entrusted with a mission from her Son. She instructed St. Catherine in matters of faith and added, "The whole world will be upset by evils of every kind. But come to the foot of this altar where great grace awaits all, whether they be great or little, who ask fervently and with confidence." We honor St. Catherine Laboure with her own words inviting all of us to go into the chapel.
