Today the FI's celebrate the feast of the Miraculous Medal. We have the Gospel account of the Miracle at Cana performed by our Lord at the instigation of Mary, His mother. Fr. Bonaventure explains the historical background of the apparition of Rue de Bac, occurring in the anti-religious aftermath of the French Revolution. In the apparition, Our Lady asked for the Immaculate Conception Medal to be struck. This medal became associated with so many miracles that it soon became known as the Miraculous Medal. These miracles are preformed by God but through the prayers of Mary just as it happened in Cana two millennia ago, which resulted in the strengthening of the faith of the disciples. St Maximilian, one of the FI's Patron Saints called these medals "bullets" because they were so good at bringing about conversions. Ave Maria!
