The Miraculous Medal proclaims the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception: the prayers
"O Mary, conceived without sin" . . . on the face of the medal is clear; as also the Immaculate
Heart of Mary, pierced with the traditional sword, on the reverse. At Lourdes Mary identified
herself: "I am the Immaculate Conception". At Fatima she asked for devotion to her Immaculate
Heart, consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart in order that there be peace in the world.
On the Medal Mary is symbolically crushing the head of Satan, the serpent of Genesis
III:15. At Lourdes she inspires Bernadette to preach penance and prayer - the tools to defeat
Satan; and during the February 19th apparitions at Lourdes, Bernadette heard demonic voices
shouting, "Begone, Begone," to Bernadette and the Lady. The Blessed Virgin quelled them with
a single glance of sovereign power. At Fatima Mary gives the children a vision of hell, the
devil's kingdom where "sinners go" and says that to save them "God wishes to establish in the
world devotion to my Immaculate Heart".
