In the heart of the 7th arrondissement of Paris, there is a chapel, where between June and December of 1830 the Virgin Mary appeared to a young novice, Catherine Labouré. During the three apparitions, Our Lady made some requests, including that of striking a medal that, if worn with faith, would give great blessings. This medal should have had on one side the invocation “O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee” and on the other side a letter “M” surmounted by a cross, with below a heart pierced by a crown of thorns and another by a sword, symbols of the relationship between Mary and her son Jesus Christ. The medal was struck in 1832, when Paris was affected by a cholera epidemic. It brought so many healings and protections that in few years million copies of this medal were struck. In 1854 Pope Pius IX proclaimed the dogma of the Immaculate Conception, shortly after confirmed by the apparitions of Lourdes.
The image of the Miraculous Madonna is represented with a white dress and a light blue mantle, the hands outstretched forward and a snake under the feet, symbol of evil in the world, that is the devil defeated by Jesus.
