Feast of Our Lady of Grace

The Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to Saint Catherine Laboure in France in 1830. The Blessed Mother asked Catherine to have a medal struck of the vision she saw. Our Lady promised that abundant graces would be bestowed on those who wore the medal.

 In her vision to Saint Catherine Laboure, brilliant rays flowed from the jewels in the rings Our Lady wore on her fingers. The Blessed Mother explained to Saint Catherine:

"These rays symbolize the graces I shed upon those who ask for them. The gems from which rays do not fall are the graces for which souls forget to ask." 

For Reflection: 

Think about all of the graces we fail to receive because we do not ask for them! Which grace do you most need to receive today? Ask Our Lady – she is waiting to bestow it upon you! Over the next couple of days, journal the ways in which you have seen this grace operating in your life.
