Little Catherine of the Miraculous Medal
By A Daughter of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul.
Imprimatur, 1937, 176 page book.
Considering the tremendous spread of the devotion to the Miraculous Medal and the millions following it, comparatively few of us know anything of its origin, of the nature of the circumstances under which our Blessed Lady appeared to her devoted Catherine Labouré, a Daughter of Charity and how and why she gave this saintly nun the task of making this devotion known to the world. There is no longer any excuse why every one of us practicing this devotion should not know everything about its origin and Catherine Labouré. For here is the complete story beginning with the life of Catherine from her earliest childhood, how she became a Daughter of Charity, how the blessed Mother appeared to her, and gave her the Miraculous Medal and what Catherine did to fulfill the request of the Blessed Virgin.
