Last week at Mother of Sorrows we celebrated The Miraculous Medal, the first apparition of The Virgin Mary to Saint Catherine Laboure and the beginning of the Vincentian Marian Youth.
During Monday’s Mass, VMY at Mother of Sorrows performed a beautiful reenactment of The MIraculous Medal. Performers included students; Jessica Flores, Ashlee Hinton, Natalia Lopez, Britney Salmeron, Jocelyn Papaqui, Mikayla Alvarez, Idaly De Luna, Valeria Cueva Jimenez, and Brisa Mejia.
Who was Saint Catherine Laboure:
Saint Catherine was The Virgin Mary’s messenger who dedicated herself to spreading the message of the Miraculous Medal. According to the International Secretariat; St. Catherine was the instrument that has enabled us to be members of the Association and to serve Christ in those who live in situations of great disadvantage. The Miraculous Medal enabled St. Catherine Laboure to be more faithful to the promise she made when her mother passed away. “Now dear Blessed Mother, now you will be my Mother!”
