Miraculous Mary Medal

June 2003        A young Vatican nun in Italy gives me a Miraculous Mary Medal.            

Luke 1:28        And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

Luke 1:30-34  And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: and he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?

Luke 1:38        And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

Luke 1:45        And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.

Luke 1:48        For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.

Luke 8:21        And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it.

Luke 11:27-28 And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

My Revelation:           I received the Miraculous Mary Medal from a young nun, and Mary presented the original idea of the medal to a young nun. The front of the medal depicts Mary standing on a globe, with the head of a serpent beneath her feet. Rays shoot out from Mary's hands, symbolizing the graces shed upon those who ask for them. Circling the oval-shaped medal is "O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee."

On the reverse side of the medal are 12 stars surrounding a large "M," from which a cross arises. Below the "M," the medal depicts two flaming hearts. The left heart, circled with thorns, represents Jesus. The right heart, pierced with a sword, symbolizes Mary.

This began my testimony of faith. I have always known the power of trusting prayer. It represents the greatest miracles I have received with patience, forgiveness, repentance, and faith.

September 23, 2017, is the first day of the new Jewish year and the day after Rosh Hashanah, the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve. The central observance is the sounding of the shofar announcing the Day of Judgment and the coronation of God as King. A great sign will appear in heaven. This is one week before the Day of Atonement.

The Gospel story has been told in the sky through the stars, moon, sun, and planets since the time of creation. Revelation 12:1-2 says, “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: and she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.”
