We’ve gotten a few questions in reference to the Miraculous medal before. It’s usually a guy or somebody purchasing a Catholic gift for a boy or man who is hesitating because they think the Miraculous medal is more feminine than masculine. Well we’ve told them and now we’ll tell you, Marian devotion is for everybody! Mary is the Mother of Jesus, but also the Mother of all men and women. Nobody is excluded from that definition and we should all love our Mother Mary.
If you still need some convincing that Marian devotion is for men too, check out this recent talk from Sam Guzman of The Catholic Gentleman. He shares five reasons that every man should love the Blessed Virgin Mary and we think he’s 100% right! Check out his talk here: www.catholicgentleman.net/2014/07/talk-5-reasons-every-man-should-love-the-blessed-virgin-mary/
For your convenience, we’ve also embedded the video of Sam’s talk below.
So if you’re not sure whether a Miraculous medal is appropriate for the Catholic man or boy you love, stop doubting yourself! Share Sam’s talk with them and encourage a new found Marian devotion if they don’t already have one.
