Altar of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Shrine

The soft cream effect of the Pavonazzo marble of the altar is enhanced by four richly colored mosaics of which two are set in the rear panels of the altar. These two, silver mosaics depict the front and back of the Miraculous Medal. The magnificent tabernacle rests below the statue of Our Lady. Below the altar table gleam the other two colorful mosaics picturing the first and second apparitions of Our Lady to Sister Catherine, now Saint Catherine Labouré.
