Prayers to St. Catherine
Prayer to St. Catherine
She revealed to you her desire that her children
wear the Miraculous
Medal as a mark of their love for her and in honor
of her Immaculate
Intercede Saint Catherine Labouré, you were the
chosen confidant of the Blessed
Virgin Mary for us, that we may follow our heavenly
mother's desires. Ask that we may receive those special
graces which flow from her motherly hands like rays
of light. Amen
St. Catherine of Laboure Prayer
Whenever I go to the chapel,
I put myself in the presence of our good Lord, and I
say to him
"Lord, I am here.
Tell me what you would have me do."
If he gives me some task,
I am content and I thank him.
If he gives me nothing,
I still thank him
since I do not deserve to receive anything
more than that.
And then, I tell God
everything that is in my heart.
I tell him about my pains and my joys,
and then I listen.
If you listen, God will also speak to you,
for with the good Lord, you have to both speak and listen.
God always speaks to you
when you approach him plainly and simply.
Remember St. Catherine Laboure
Remember St. Catherine by wearing the St. Catherine
medal, St. Catherine necklace, or St. Catherine pendant.
She showed Christians the importance of honoring the
Blessed Virgin Mary, humbly following Mary's instructions.
Wearing a St. Catherine medal reminds Catholics to continue
the work of St. Catherine, spreading devotion to the
Blessed Mother wherever they go.
St. Catherine Laboure was silent about the apparitions
she saw of the Virgin Mary. She only told her spiritual
advisor about what she saw. St. Catherine remained a
simple, devout sister, never wanting the adoration of
others because of her visions of the Blessed Virgin.
It wasn't revealed until years later who the Blessed
Virgin really appeared to.
Catholics wear a St. Catherine pendant to give St. Catherine
Laboure the honor she deserves.
