Miraculous Medal Experience on October 13, 2016
By Susan Helene Kramer
This is my true experience in an early morning dream on October 13, 2016:
In the dream I was about to sit at my desk at work and noticed a small unsealed manila envelope which had been laid in the center of my workspace. I opened the letter, and folded inside was a piece of muslin-like cloth enclosing a blue enamel Miraculous Medal about an inch long.
I picked the medal up and held it between my fingers and then showed it to my nearby colleague. I asked her if she knew who had placed it there. She didn't. I told her that I would put it on my altar at home.
Then I awoke and thought about the dream and what it meant to me.
I remembered that this was the 2nd Miraculous Medal I had, as I had bought a silver one just 13 months earlier at the Santa Barbara Mission gift shop while visiting family, which I have been wearing on a chain around my neck during the day the past year, and lay on my altar at night.

As a youth I wore a Miraculous Medal scapula under my clothes, which hung down onto my chest and also my upper back.
Our Lady of Fatima Feast Day
Moving forward a few hours I read an article posted on Face Book about today being the 99th anniversary, from October 13, 1917, of Our Lady of Fatima and the miracle of the dancing sun. At age 12 for my confirmation name I chose Jacinta, one of the 3 children of Fatima.
Reflection and Message
My reflection of my dream about a Miraculous Medal, and this being the Fatima Feast Day is that our Blessed Mother is telling us that while we live on earth we can and must each do our part through prayers and meditation to lift humanity's awareness to our spiritual nature; that there is more to us than body and mind.
