Her eyes were turned toward heaven, she stood erect upon a large white sphere, her feet were set upon a serpent, greenish in color but touched with yellow spots. At the level of her breast she held a little golden ball surmounted by a Cross, and this she was offering to God.
-St. Catherine Labouré
Consecration to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal
O Virgin Mother of God, Mary Immaculate, we dedicate and consecrate ourselves to you under the title of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. May this medal be for each one of us a sure sign of your affection for us and a constant reminder of our duties toward you. Ever while wearing it, may we be blessed by your loving protection and preserved in the grace of your Son.
O most powerful Virgin, Mother of our Savior, keep us close to you every moment of our lives. Obtain for us, your children, the grace of a happy death; so that, in union with you, we may enjoy the bliss of heaven forever.
O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to you. (3 times)
