Geocache Description:

This cache was hidden just after nightfall, and boy, is this area spooky in the dark! Bring a flashlight and some courage, or play it safe and go during the day. It's not hard to spot, but the container may not be what you expect. Contains small items for trade, plus a (new with tags) necklace for the FTF.

BEHIND THE NAME: Usually, when a person claims to have been given a divine mission in a supernatural visions, that person either is a fraud or is suffering delusions of grandeur. In either case, their behavior is bold and flamboyant. If that person instead continues to lead a quiet life as an unknown, her credibility goes up.

Perhaps that helped St. Catherine Labouré popularize a small trinket called the Miraculous Medal. Its spread in the early 19th century was positively viral, after this nun claimed to receive instructions for the medal from the Virgin Mary, yet continued in every way to follow her humble life of obedience to her superiors. This cache is no more grandiose than she was, so be careful not to overlook it.
