Hi, guys —

I have a Miraculous Medal that I wear with devotion daily and it has everything that it should have on it except for the oval frame on the front side.

  • Is it necessary for this medal to be made exactly the way it was originally designed, in order to receive the graces associated with it?


  { Is the Miraculous Medal required to be exactly the way it was designed, in order to receive its graces? }

Eric replied:

Manuel —

Does the medal have the inscription:

          "O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee."

                   or something equivalent?


Manuel replied:

Hi, Eric —

Yes, it does have that inscription.
It's just missing the actual oval "frame" around that inscription.


Eric replied:

Then I would not worry about it in the least.
