“They laid hands on Our Lady? They will not go any further.”


Saint Catherine Labouré,
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
During the 1848 Revolution in Paris, in March of that year, Catherine Labouré, a sister in the Congregation of the Daughters of Charity, continued to run the Picpus Hospital in Paris (where she also resided) almost single-handedly, taking care of the poor after most of the sisters had been forced to flee.

She distributed the Miraculous Medal that the Virgin Mary herself had requested through her, all the way up to the barricades. During searches by the revolutionaries inside the different foundations of the Congregation, she exhorted everyone to keep up their courage and, miraculously, the protection of Mary—whom she incessantly invoked—kept the entire community safe.

When Sister Catherine heard that revolutionaries had ransacked the church of Notre-Dame-des-Victoires in Paris, she said: "They laid hands on Our Lady? They will not go any further." In the spring, in fact, the rebellion died out.
