Standard size, silver oxidized
Very Miraculous, good size to wear and should be worn, it is also used for decontaminating water and protection of homes. Our Blessed Mother showed Saint Catherine Laboure the medal of the Immaculate Conception which is now known as the "Miraculous Medal", promising that all who wore it with devotion should receive great graces by the intercession of the Mother of God.
(Given during an ecstasy, Marie Julie Jahenny) " A medal of My Divine Heart, a medal upon which is traced the Adorable Cross. You will steep into a glass of water the two images* be it made of cardboard or metal. You will drink this water twice blessed, twice purified. One drop only in your food, one little drop, will suffice to drive away the calamity, but the calamities of My Justice." (*The Miraculous Medal, alone, fulfills the conditions required. The Editor.) You will give a drop of this water to the poor souls touched by the scourge of unknown diseases - those which attack the heart, the spirit, the word."
