Our Lady’s Wedding Ring

“Countless miracles surround the ring” Aleteia Devout young engaged couples touch their rings to it.

On July 29, 1821, Catherine Emmerich had a vision of the separate grave-clothes of Our Lord Jesus and of images of Our Lord which had been miraculously imprinted on cloths. Her visions led her through various places in which these holy relics were sometimes preserved with great honor and sometimes forgotten by men and venerated only by the angels and by devout souls. In the course of these visions she thought that she saw Our Lady’s wedding ring preserved in one of these places, and spoke of it as follows.

“I saw the Blessed Virgin’s wedding ring. It is neither of silver nor of gold, nor of any other material; it is not a thin narrow ring, but rather thick and at least a finger broad. I saw it smooth and yet as if covered with little regular triangles in which were letters.

On the inside was a flat surface. The ring is engraved with something. I saw it kept behind many locks in a beautiful Church.

On August 3, 1821, she said: “In the last few days I have seen much of Mary’s wedding ring, but as a result of disturbances and pain I can no longer give a connected account of it. Today I saw a festival in a Church in Italy where the wedding ring is to be found. It seemed to me to be hung up in a kind of monstrance which stood above the Tabernacle”

“I saw Mary and Joseph appearing in their wedding garments on each side of the ring, as if Joseph were placing the ring on the Blessed Virgin’s finger. At the same time I saw the ring shining and as if in movement.

The wedding ring of Joseph and Mary is kept in the Cathedral of Perugia, in Italy
