Saint Catherine Labouré died on December 31, 1876. When her body was exhumed 56 years later, the church judged it to be unblemished — and her eyes are said to be as blue as the day she died!

Certain saints, at the time of their death or years after their bodies were exhumed, have been found to be “incorruptible,” meaning their bodies did not compose like other bodies do, or even at all.

According to Strange Remains, Saint Catherine Labouré was known for her visions of the Blessed Mother.

Today, Catherine’s body is encased in a glass coffin at the side altar of the Chapel of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, one of the locations where the Virgin Mary appeared to her.
