Miraculous Medal: Mary was Conceived without Sin!
Behold! what for years, has been repeated thousands and thousands of times, not in this great city or diocese only, but in every part of France, among strangers and in the most distant countries.
Mary the Advocate!
Behold! the cry of hope which suffering danger, public or private necessities, have wrung from mouths accustomed to bless God, and celebrate the praises of His Holy Mother.
Behold! what has been written, engraved, religiously deposed, wherever there were spiritual or temporal favors to be asked, graces of protection, of healing or conversion ; at the entrance of cities, at the doors of dwellings, on the breast of the sick, on the couch of the dying.
Miraculous Medal: Mary and the Immaculate Conception!
Behold! what in these later times especially, has taken such deep root in all Christian hearts, what has received an extraordinary impulse, what has been propagated in so remarkable a manner, what seems to justify moreover, (the fact can no longer be disguised) the numberless graces obtained through the invocation of Mary conceived without sin.
Archbishop of Paris Hyacinthe Louis DE Quelen. 1838.
