Our Lady of Grace, who gave the Miraculous Medal to Sr. Catherine Labouré, brings to the world a message of hope for those who trust in her maternal care.
In 1980, during Pope John Paul II's pilgrimage to the chapel of the apparitions on the Rue du Bac he referred to Our Lady’s doctrinal roles of co redemption, mediation, advocacy, and her Immaculate Conception as they are contained in the Miraculous Medal revelations. He confirmed them in his own papal prayer to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal:
"O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to you.
O Mary, this was the prayer that you gave to Saint Catherine Labouré in the Chapel of the Apparitions, more than one hundred and fifty years ago. This invocation, engraved on the Miraculous Medal, is now worn and repeated by the faithful throughout the world.
… Blessed are you among women! You are intimately associated with the work of our redemption, associated with the Cross of our Savior, your heart has been pierced, next to his heart. And now, in the glory of your Son, you never cease to intercede for us, poor sinners. You watch over the Church for you are its Mother. You watch over each of your children. From God, you obtain for us all graces that are symbolized by the rays of light which radiate from your open hands, and the only condition that you demand of us is that we approach with the confidence, the hardiness, and the simplicity of a child. And it is thus that you bring us before your divine Son."
