2nd Apparition of the Miraculous Medal

The mosaic that surrounds the statue of Our Lady artfully depicts the meaning of The Virgo Potens. The words at The Blessed Mother’s feet, “O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee,” represent the reverent prayers offered to Mary. The words arranged in an arch above The Blessed Mother’s head, “This ball that you see represents the whole world,” signify the global reach of Mary’s intercessions.
