St Catherine Laboure, Christ the King, and the King of France

Well, that was interesting.  How long has the St Catherine Labouré/Miraculous Medal post been missing?  The full 24 hours since I posted it?  I suppose so.

Fortunately, it wasn't one of those garment-rending losses when hours of careful thought and typing have vanished into the æther.  This was actually a link to someone else's hours of careful thought, etc.  But still rather annoying.  One looks something of a numpty when one's blog features a headline and no post.

What was supposed to be referenced was this fascinating post at Tea at Trianon, in which one will learn about the Miraculous Medal, St Catherine Labouré (whose feast day it is today), Christ the King, monarchy in general and the Bourbons in particular.
