The Miraculous Medal and the Great Catholic Monarch

Does the Miraculous Medal reveal clues about the promised Great Catholic Monarch of Prophecy?

Our Lady declared to Marie-Julie Jahenny (March 25, 1874) that the Angelic Pontiff of prophecy destined to restore the Catholic Church will be imprisoned and persecuted, but that she would send the King to rescue him, the Great Monarch. She proceeded to name this King: HENRY V.

Our Lady also repeated this in another vision to Marie-Julie (December 6, 1874) that the Angelic Pontiff will be delivered by her Divine Son, but by BY HER through Her Immaculate Heart, she will send help through the 'King of the Lilies', i.e. the Great Monarch will be the last King of France. Therefore, Our Lady would be instrumental in arranging the time of the Great Monarch's appearance.

Our Lord also declared in a vision to Marie-Julie Jahenny: (May 24, 1875) “From now on it is up to thee, My Mother, to thee alone, to command and fix the hour of the Victory of thy beloved Daughter! (France)"

Hence, the Great Age of Peace promised by the Immaculate Heart of Mary will come through the Great Monarch of France, HENRY V.

Details about the King's Identity:

Our Lord declared to Marie-Julie Jahenny: (March 22, 1881) “This flower is the lily, O King, miracle child, do not prepare to come from exile under a thick dust stirred up by the fury of the murderers of your country.” (The Great Monarch will come from his exile, which is also part of past ancient prophecies.)

St. Michael then added much later: (September 6, 1890) “The one who waits, it is the one that they call the MIRACLE CHILD. This kingdom has not yet known his name, but much later it will know the depths of his heart. He is reserved for the great epochs."

This can be none other than the Count of Chambord, HENRY V, who was known as the “Miracle Child”. (Read more about the revelation of the King's identity to Marie-Julie Jahenny, click here.)

Of interest, it appears that the apparitions of Our Lady to St. Catherine Labouré at Rue du Bac in Paris in 1830 also seem to point out the identity of HENRY V, the Count of Chambord, as the chosen King.

In fact, it appears the apparitions are particularly connected with the French Monarchy

Before the Mirculous Medal Apparitions

St. Catherine revealed to her spiritual confessor that before Our Lady appeared, Our Lord used to appear to her in the Blessed Sacrament. At first, she thought this was a delusion. However, On June 6, 1830, Feast of the Blessed Trinity Our Lord appeared again:

Our Lord appeared to me in the Blessed Sacrament, in the form of a king with a cross on His Breast. At the Gospel it seemed to me that the cross slipped under the Feet of Our Lord, and that all His kingly jewels fell to the ground. Then I was filled with the gloomiest thoughts about our earthly king being dethroned, and despoiled of his royal garments, and from that came thoughts that I cannot explain, about the ruin which would be the result (...)"  (Source: “Venerable Sister Catherine Laboure, Sister of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul : taken chiefly from 'La Vénerable Catherine Labouré” by Edmond Crapez, (1920) p. 26.)

In other words, it was a prediction of the fall of the Bourbon Monarchy of France with the abdication of Charles X – the grandfather of Henry V.

The Miraculous Medal and the Identity of the Great Catholic Monarch

First Apparition:

The First Apparition happened on the night of July 18-19, 1830. A child (perhaps her guardian angel) awakened St. Catherine Labouré, a novice in the community of the Daughters of Charity in Paris, and summoned her to the chapel. There she saw the Virgin Mary and spoke with her for several hours. During the conversation, Our Lady said to her, “My child, I am going to give you a mission.”

*) Observation; notice this point in French history – the First Apparition occurred just a week before the July Revolution occurred, an event that caused an upheaval in the newly restored monarchy. Charles X of France was forced to abdicate August 2, 1830. His son, Louis XIX, abdicated 20 minutes later. Therefore, Henri Charles Ferdinand Marie Dieudonné d’Artois, Duke de Bordeaux, Count de Chambord, also known as the 'Miracle Child' among his supporters, was technically King of France for a week from the 2nd to the 9th of August 1830 as Henry V, although he was never officially proclaimed as king by the government or the majority of the people. A scuffle ensued for the throne. The National Assembly declared that Louis Philippe, duc d’Orléans should assume the throne, and Henry together with his family went into exile in Austria on August 16, 1830. Louis Philippe ruled from 1830 to 1848 until he was forced off the throne during the next upheaval of the Second Republic. (Many prophecies foretold the Great Monarch would be a king in exile.)

The Second Apparition to St. Catherine

Our Lady gave St. Catherine her promised mission in a vision four months later during evening meditation on November 27, 1830. She saw Our Lady standing on what seemed to be half a globe and holding a golden globe in her hands as if offering it to heaven. On the globe was the word “France,” and our Lady explained that the globe represented the whole world but especially France. Streaming from rings on Our Lady's fingers as she held the globe were many rays of light. She explained the rays symbolize the graces she obtains for those who ask for them. However, some of the gems on the rings were dark. These symbolised the graces that were available but did not come because no one had asked for them.  (Image: Our Lady of Rue du Bac holding the globe of France).

*) Observations: notice the second vision pays particular attention to France again: France was going to experience much trouble, and indeed, the influence of its Masonic Republic that abolished the Absolute Monarchy has spread throughout the world.  Note also the globe is an ORB: orbs were of special significance: they have been a Christian symbol of authority since the Middle Ages, used on coins, in iconography, and also on sceptres as royal regalia.   The orb is a symbol of Godly power. A cross above a globe represents ‘Christ’s dominion over the world’, as the Monarch is God’s representative on Earth.
Also, the vision shows the graces Our Lady is willing to give us when we pray for them, however, some gems were dark. When cannot help connect this to a future vision of Marie-Julie Jahenny in which she was told people were NOT PRAYING ENOUGH TO RECEIVE THE KING.

Marie-Julie Jahenny (March 25, 1875): Our Lady … said we do not ask enough for that King, (the Great Monarch) and we do not beg enough that he may be accorded to us. She named him Henry V, and recommended us to pray much to Saint Michael.

Third Vision:

The vision St. Catherine saw of Our Lady with the globe then changed, and she saw a vision of what we now call the 'Miraculous Medal': On the front Our Lady with her hands out bestowing graces, with the following prayer encircling her: “O, Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.” (Our Lady was confirming that she was indeed Mary IMMACULATE, conceived without sin.)

The back of the medal shows an 'M' surmounted by a cross, underneath are the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts of Jesus and Mary, the symbols circled by the crown of 12 stars as seen in the book of the Apocalypse.

Our Lady said: “Have a medal struck upon this model. Those who wear it will receive great graces, especially if they wear it around the neck.”

Taking a closer look at the images, it is interesting that

  1. The medals show the importance of the year of the apparitions at Our Lady's feet, 1830. It is also the year HENRY V was king of France for a week.

  1. The back of the Medal: notice the horizontal bar in the middle of the M holding up the cross. Why is that horizontal bar there? Perhaps we are also meant to see another pattern?

H. V.  and the Cross. 

Could it be that the Medal was hiding the identity of HENRY V all along?

Henry V, the 'Miracle Child', was also called HENRY OF THE CROSS by Our Lord to Marie-Julie Jahenny, (February 14, 1882): 
"From Heaven, you will see the triumph of the Church hovering over the forehead of My true servant Henry of the Cross, (The Great Monarch) He will comfort the destitute, renew the devastated priesthood, weakened and fallen like a branch under the saw of the worker. His charity will renew the priesthood, he will raise the statues of My Mother, he will remount the crosses (that were) insulted and cut into pieces."

Our Lord said to Marie-Julie Jahenny that the promised triumph of his Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of His mother would occur through the King. Notice what the 'M' and the 'H - Roman Numeral 5 - Cross' is standing on. The Sacred and Immaculate Hearts! She would get the honour to announce the hour of Victory, and the apparitions to St Catherine Labouré occurred when HENRY V was technically King of France. Immaculate Mary was already preparing the path for the Great King.

Also, the prophecies state the Great Monarch would come near the end of time, but just before the Antichrist: notice the crown of 12 stars of the Apocalypse around the symbols too. Of interest, the 'Crown of 12 stars' just appeared in the sky in 2017 in the sign of Virgo. Virgo, the Virgin, was crowned.  One major time this happened was just around the time of Noah and the FLOOD.   Just before the 'crown of 12 stars' happened, in 2016 the STAR of BETHLEHEM occurred in the royal lion sign of Leo, representing the tribe of Judah from which the House of David decends: according to tradition, the French monarchy descends from the House of David, and therefore, the Great Monarch descends from the House of David. The Great Monarch will be from the House of David, but is also a King of WAR. Could he be the White Rider of the Apocalypse? The colour White is extremely important regarding the Great Monarch in Marie-Julie Jahenny's prophecies. (You can read more about the signs on the sky for 2016-2017, click here.)  

Of interest, one of the last 'recent' times the 'Star of David' happened in Leo, together with a similar conjuction of the 'Crown of Stars' near Virgo was in 1186 AD in the medieval period during the reign of Phillip August of France -- he gave the country the name of 'France' for the first time, built France into a great Kingdom at the time, construction on Notre Dame was still fairly new and in the beginning phase, and, he was the grandfather of the great Catholic king, St. Louis IX.  The Great Catholic French Monarch to come is described as 'another St. Louis'.  He will be a great Catholic king after God's own heart.  Again, we just had signs in the sky similar to the time Louis IX was about to be born in France! Only this time, we saw the destruction of Notre Dame, a sign of what's to come as the Great Monarch will be a king of war and come amidst fire and destruction.  There are no such things as a co-incidence, especially on this cosmic scale.  (See more about the 1186 conjuction in Virgo via the 'prophecy' of the Rigord of St. Denis, click here. It freaked people out at the time because they thought it was an 'end of the world' prediction, when history shows us now it acutally was fortelling a great period of France.)

Also you may be asking, if Henry V, the Count of Chambord, has already come and died, how can he be the Great French Monarch of prophecy? Christ promised Marie-Julie Jahenny that the king would be “RETURNED” to his subjects, Our Lord's actual words, and that France would be RESURRECTED, that we would see many RESURRECTIONS as a sign to bring a faithless age back to repentance. (Read more about the miraculous return of the King, click here.)

Furthermore a 'secret' regarding St. Catherine Labouré was mentioned by Or Lord to Marie-Julie Jahenny: He revealed to Marie-Julie that the times of chastisements to hit France and the date these chastiments and the Two Days of Darkness would happen were revealed to St. Catherine Labouré.

Our Lord: (June 15, 1882) “This particular day was revealed to My servant Catherine in the apparitions of My Holy Mother, under the name Mary conceived without sin.”

Our Lord also said Marie-Julie Jahenny that the date was also revealed to Sr. Mary Peter of Tours, which was written down and then hidden. The hidden roll will be discovered at a time pre-ordained by God, alerting people once again to the coming dangers.

Since these chastisements also herald the coming of the Great Monarch as we learn through Marie-Julie Jahenny's prophecies, isn't it interesting St. Catherine Labouré was also told about them?  This has to be more than a co-incidence.  (Learn more about the Two Days of Darkness, click here.)


Here is another important Marian connection between the Miraculous Medal and the Great Catholic Monarch - Ida Peerdeman, who received visions of The Lady of All Nations in Amsterdam, also received the following spiritual intution on May 31, 1969 during a Eucharistic Vision at the chapel of the Miraculous Medal in Rue du Bac: 

“What began here, (i.e Rue du Bac) will be continued by ‘The Lady of All Nations.”

 'What began here' at Rue du Bac could also refer to the Great Monarch - Ida received a Great Catholic Monarch vision during the visits of The Lady of All Nations.  See more about The Lady of All Nations, click here.


Of interest, the symbols on the back of the Miraculous Medal reminds me of something else: the Dream of St. John Bosco and the Two Pillars

It is a vision of the upheavals and persecutions that will happen to the Church before the arrival of the Angelic Pontiff and the Age of Peace symbolised by the great ship anchoring between the two pillars of the Blessed Sacrament and Immaculate Mary.  

We recall the Angelic Pontiff will be rescued by the King, whose time of Victory will be declared by Our Lady.
