Background Regarding the Benemerenti Medal

The Benemerenti Medal was created by Pope Gregory XVI, and dates to the late 18th/early 19th century.  It was first awarded to soldiers in the Papal Army.  The medal was later extended to members of the clergy and laity for exceptional service to the Roman Catholic Church.

Marie says,

"He chose to raise up this ministry that YOU are ALL a VITAL PART OF!

BY GOD'S GRACE AND HIS WILL! You have each been hand chosen by the Lord and you have each said YES!

Said YES many times... over and over again!

THIS MEDAL IS FOR ALL OF US SHARED -

I will humbly stand up for us ALL

I truly believe that the Lord knows that I would never want a medal or award for this work...and so it had to come from Pope Francis!!!

I hope that anyone who is able will come to the Cathedral and know that this is for you too!"

You are Invited to come witness this incredible honor.
