Chapel of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, Paris

4.7
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. Chapel of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Paris Edition.

  • Although somewhat hidden from the street, the Chapel is well frequented by devotees from all over the place by the fame of his miracles. The little shop of medals he's always pretty full in search of souvenirs and brochures in several línquas.

  • It was just wonderful and so exciting to be in Lourdes and to participate in all the spiritual exercise in honor of our Lady of Lourdes. I feel renewed body and soul. Thanks to the team that organized it, may our Lady of Lourdes pray for us
  • +JMJ...Faith enhancing visit extraordinaire!! Lovely! Serene! Evoked deep sentiments of gratitude for God's love and His attentiveness to the miseries of mankind. The gift of the visit of the Blessed Virgin Mary (from Heaven) to then novice, Catherine Laboure, was to remind mankind that the Good God knows that we are still undergoing the onslaught of spiritual warfare and that we need a visual reminder (hence the creation of a sacramental now called the Miraculous Medal) of His desire to grant us the spiritual help we need to remain on the narrow path of life to reach eternal love itself - God. My visit to this Chapel was very providential as I was just returning to the Sacramental life of the Holy Roman Catholic Church. The visit overwhelmed me with sorrow (I cried a great deal) for my offenses against God and neighbor; yet, it also placed me on the spiritual path to repentance and a more profound desire to be pleasing to God. Those who visit this Chapel, I pray they do so with open hearts to discern God's designs for them. Peace and joy! Praise the Lord!
  • A beautiful oasis of prayer in the middle of Paris where Our Lady has appeared. Closed between 1pm and 2.30pm.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
