The Miraculous Medal is such a phenomenal book!

Reading this book has encouraged me to pray more often and has reminded me to call upon the Blessed Mother frequently throughout the day. I believe that all Catholics would benefit from reading this book and feel that all should wear a Miraculous Medal. I also believe that this book can be life changing for those who take its contents to heart!

I can't think of a more appropriate author than Donna-Marie for a book about the the Miraculous Medal, and her beautifully written book did not disappoint! I'm inspired by Donna-Marie's stories - both personal and those she collected and included in the book. I've worn a Miraculous Medal for a number of years and am truly reminded of our Blessed Mother's special love and constant care and protection for all of God's children. And, I've seen miracles in giving medals to family and friends which I've received as Holy-Spirit-prompted-gifts Donna-Marie has kindly included in book orders I've placed on her site. The stories that Donna-Marie shared in the book deepened my faith and understanding of what a truly special sacramental we've been given. I love Donna-Marie's personal experience of receiving a Miraculous Medal from Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, which she still wears today, and through her decade-long friendship with her, was encouraged to write about the vocation of motherhood, encouraging moms and lighting the way for us to remain faithful, serve joyfully, and be at peace in raising our children and helping others God has placed in our lives. Specifically, I love how she inspired Donna-Marie to encourage moms in the the world to ask our Blessed Mother to be a mother to each of us/our families now, to ask Our Blessed Mother to help us in raising faithful, virtuous, loving children, and in turn the miraculous help, grace, and blessings we receive through asking in love and faith.
The Miraculous Medal, is a beautiful book where you can find that God makes miracles every day in our lives, Our Lady leave us a message with St. Catherine Laboure that all who wear the Miraculos Medal with confidence will received great graces. We can see miracles when we have Faith. My 11 year old boy likes to read the stories and he shares with the family and friends, he wears the medal and he is growing in his faith to Our Lord and Our Lady. We as a family wear the Miraculous Medal and pray for her Intercession every day.
