Chapel of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, Paris
(4.6/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
At Chapel of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal in 1830, Saint Catherine Labouré saw three visions of the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus. In one of those visions, Mary asked St. Catherine to create a medal with the following invocation: "O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee." The faithful believe the medal, known as the Miraculous Medal, can protect them from harm and perform miracles. The chapel now serves as a shrine for pilgrims. Here you will find the graves of St. Catherine and St. Vincent de Paul, founder of the Sisters of Charity, who operate the shrine.

  • Many people just do not know this wonderful place!!!! Worth the walking... five minutes from "rue du bac" station... 
  • The Chapel is cute, but the nuns always seem to be angry. When I went to ask one of them replied: it is in the brochure, read! always angry and a little conversation. You can't talk there Shorty, total silence, otherwise take scolding them. Other than that the place is very nice. There's the shrine (to the right of the altar) of St. Catherine Laboure, who spent 46 years in the service of the elderly and his body is buried there since 1933. The statue of made her lying is very real and coated habit that used the Daughters of Charity until 1964. On the left side of the altar is the body of Saint Louise de Marillac, who founded with St. Vincent de Paul the company of the daughters of charity. Pope John Paul II visited this Chapel in 1980. There is a souvenir shop where you can buy the medals. The chapel was built in devotion to the sacred heart of Jesus. The story of the miraculous medal: sister Catherine, who had visions of Virgin Mary and chatted with her three times, months after she is nominated for the asylum of Enghien (XII) in order to take care of the elders. She gets to work. The inner voice, however, insists: it is necessary to make the medal. Catherine back to talk to her confessor, father Aladel. In February 1832, there was a terrible epidemina of cholera, more than 20,000 dead. The daughters of charity begin to distribute in June, the first 2,000 medals minted at the request of father Aladel. The cures they multiply, and the protections and conversions.

  • It's all about money collection, but are the naive people who keep the business going. And to be honest, there are always masses of people. Beware I respect fully the view of all those people of many nationalities. There were Chinese, Brazilians, Germans, Belgians, etc. ...
