I've worn this medal since my gradeschool days. Then the boys would go
swimming in the summer and everyone knew the catholic boys since they
had a medal and chain. There weren't many chains in those days except
for religious ones. I've always worn one and reflecting back on my life,
it has been a protected spiritual life. I remember once I thought to myself,
as I was looking back and seeing my life back thru the years, that my life
was protected from so many things that others seem to have such a hard
time with. After pondering this over why I had this continual calm and good life,
the only thing I came up with was the miraculous medal, where Mary promised
abundant graces to those who wore it. My life hasn't been a song, but it
hasn't been without goodness in it and I've always had a strong faith thru
thick and thin regardless of any event. I always felt this to be a great
previlege to have Mary with me and to watch over me at all times. I
could not name the number of times I've invoked her sweet name, my
mother, the one who has always held my hand. I suppose that is the real
miracle, the persevering one which she made happen thru her mother love.
I can say without any hesitation to anyone who hears me. If you have a spiritual
problem in your life that is killing you, put Mary's blessed medal on and tell
Mary that you are now committing yourself totally to her so she may give
spiritual birth of her son in your heart again. Your problem is solved if you
trust her words:
"Have a medal struck... All who wear it will receive GREAT graces; they should wear it
around the neck. GRACES will ABOUND for persons who wear it with CONFIDENCE."
