The lastest issue of French magazine Paris Match has published an interesting photograph of President Obama revealing what he always carries in his pockets. Among the items is a Miraculous Medal. The photo also shows another medal with the image of the Virgin Mary holding the Infant Jesus.
The lastest issue of French magazine Paris Match has published an interesting photograph of President Obama revealing what he always carries in his pockets. Among the items is a Miraculous Medal. The photo also shows another medal with the image of the Virgin Mary holding the Infant Jesus.(This photo first appeared in Time Magazine in June 2008).
The medal has an association with Medjugorje. On November 27, 1989, Our Lady said to the visionary Marija:
These days, I want you to pray in a special way for the salvation of souls. Today is the feast day of the miraculous medal, and I want that you pray, in a special way, for the salvation of those people who are carrying this miraculous medal. I want you to spread the devotion and carrying of this medal, so that more souls may be saved, and that you pray in a special way.
O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to you.
On November 27 1830 at 5:30 pm, during meditation, St Catherine Labouré saw at the present location of the Virgin of the Globe (Rue de Bac) a vision of the Blessed Virgin. She was standing on a globe holding in her hands a small golden globe, her feet crushing a serpent. Coming from the open hands of the Blessed Virgin were beautiful rays of light. At that same moment Catherine heard a voice saying: “These rays are symbols of graces that Mary obtains for people.” Then an oval formed around the vision and Catherine saw emblazoned in a semi-circle this invocation written in gold letters, and until then unknown: “O Mary conceived without sin pray for us who have recourse to you”. Then the oval turned and Catherine saw on the reverse side, the letter M surmounted with a little cross and below it the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Catherine then heard these words: “Have a medal made as this. Those who wear it with confidence will receive great graces.”
• further information about the Miraculous Medal and St Catherine Labouré can be found at the official website of the Chapel of the Rue de Bac.
For your discernment. If this is true, regardless of his reasons, we need to pray for him and the Congress.
I wonder if there will be very many posts on this.
Does he hold onto the medal tightly when a baby is dying in a metal tray after they are born? Does he cling to the medla as he supports partial birth abortions?
The Catholic Chruch needs to rid themselves of bishops and other leftist who gave $6 million in parishoners money to ACORN.
Say what?!?!?!?!? He carries Our Lady’s Miraculous Medal?!?!? He who is a radical pro-abortionist?!?!?!? Oy gevalt!
He also carried a hindu monkey god idol in his pocket. I don’t care what he carried. He still needs to be prayed for because the Lord commands it in His Word.
Is there any Muslim doo dad in there?
If not, it’s all for show.
Obama: Theres the belief, certainly in some quarters, that people havent embraced Jesus Christ as their personal savior that they're going to hell.(Obama, 2004)
GG: You dont believe that?
OBAMA: I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell. I cant imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity. Thats just not part of my religious makeup.
Yeah, that is like the soldiers bracelet he was wearing during the McCain debate.
These are trinkets from every religion out there. Yes, I’m glad he has a pretty little Catholic trinket. That does not make him a Catholic. If this is how you think, then he must be Hindu too, because he wears a Monkey God trinket dedicated to that Hindu God.
We also need to keep in mind that those who practice sorcery and witchcraft use Christian medals and such sometimes as part of their rituals
I recall a daily prayer thread for President Bush. I wonder if there is one for Barack Obama as well. One that maybe one day his eyes will open.
This kills me to say, but this is not far off from the current Catholic belief, as I understand it. We do believe there is punishment for a knowing rejection of Christianity, but not for someone who has not had exposure.
I don’t believe the story about Hussein for one moment. It’s an outright lie IMHO. I have been the Church at the Rue and the incorruptible body of St. Catherine is still preserved in a glass casing. At any time of the day there is an overflow crowd.
The Obama administration is pro-witchcraft:
(no, this is not a hoax)
Boy are YOU right....how can he reconcile THAT medallion to abortion...OMG..I will never understand.
There is. I started it on election Eve. Just go to the Religion Forum and search pray for nation obama
He's either a pantheist or he's not sure what he believes and is covering all bases. A Catholic sacramental, a Hindu symbol and a bunch of other stuff.
You're right about praying for him, though. Salvation history is nothing if not the story of sinners who saw the light.
SAINT CATHERINE LABOURÉ
liberal white house staff folks get confused by religious stuff.
