On the occasion of the Feast of St. John Gabriel Perboyre (September 11), we share this video from the Miraculous Medal Shrine Weekly Reflections series, script by Mr. George Whalen, video by Fr. Frank Sacks, C.M.
From the reflection:
A reading of Perboyre’s letters makes it evident that he and others brought the [Miraculous] medal to China very soon after the apparitions in Paris and, through it, fostered devotion to Mary. John Gabriel knew Fr. Aladel, St. Catherine Laboure’s spiritual director, quite well. He writes to him in 1838, recounting with enthusiasm the effects that the medal is having in China.
