its long been used as a means of fostering and expressing religious devotion. The medal is intended as a means of reminding us of God and of stirring up in us a ready willingness and desire to serve God and our neighbor. With this understanding we reject any use of it as if it were a mere charm or had some magic power to bring good luck or better health. Such is not the Christian attitude.
