Save the Date for the Association’s annual May Procession here on the shrine grounds on Sunday, May 7, 2017, beginning at 3:30 p.m., CDT.  We hope you will be able to join us in person for this spiritual event that acknowledges our dependence on God’s grace and Mary’s intercession. There will also be a May Procession held in Montebello, California, if that is more accessible for you. There, at the De Paul Evangelization Center, a bilingual Mass (English and Spanish) will begin at 12 p.m., PDT, followed by the procession and crowning.  As a way to join us in our prayers, we would like for you to send us your intentions to be carried in the May Procession which will represent your spiritual presence. For more details about the annual May Procession, read Fr. Kevin’s letter.

Fr. Kevin’s Lenten Mission letter compares how athletes practice like it’s game day to the forty days of Lent as a way to strengthen your muscles of prayer, penance, and almsgiving. The Association of the Miraculous Medal in Perryville, Missouri, wants to help you strengthen these spiritual muscles. Send your intentions to our Lady’s Association so we can remember them in our prayers and Masses during Lent. You can also request a Votive Light at our Lady’s Shrine for your intentions. Say this prayer each day of Lent to help you with your journey.

You are invited to join the Association’s Lourdes Novena, February 11-19, in person or in spirit.  Send us your intentions now to be remembered.  Mary, under titles of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal and Our Lady of Lourdes, is always ready to help her children. So many miracles at the healing pools of Lourdes, France, testify to the fact that Mary intercedes for us! 
St. Bernadette was wearing a Miraculous Medal when Mary, the Immaculate Conception, appeared to her in 1858. This close connection between Lourdes and the Miraculous Medal is why we celebrate an annual novena here at the National Shrine of the Miraculous Medal honoring Our Lady of Lourdes. Read Fr. Kevin’s letter with more information about the miracles at Lourdes.

At the Association we pray you and your family shared a blessed and holy Christmas together, celebrating the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ. With the approaching new year, take a quiet moment to give thanks for the blessings granted to you in 2016.  Ask Mary, the Mother of God, to continue to intercede on your behalf in 2017.  Send in your petitions now to be placed at our Lady’s Shrine for remembrance on January 1, the Solemnity of Mary, the Mother of God. Start 2017 with the heavenly support of Mary, the Mother of God.  Let her nurture and protect you in the way she did her Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Christmas is fast approaching, and many of you are feeling overwhelmed by all the preparations of the season. If you are seeing a deeper encounter with Christ this Christmas, I encourage you to offer Jesus your prayers of thanksgiving.  A perfect way to do this is to send me your Christmas petitions to be included in the Shrine’s Christmas Novena, December 16-24.  Your intentions will be placed at our Lady’s Shrine for remembrance as we prepare for the coming of our Lord.  You might also want to burn a Votive Light in thanksgiving for the blessings of the year.  I hope you will join us, either in spirit or in person, for this year’s Christmas Novena at the Shrine Church in Perryville, Missouri.

In the 2016 Winter Bulletin, read Father Kevin’s article about the everlasting promise that gives us the strength to be the light in a world of darkness, and Don’s article about two men sharing one brief moment in life.  Father Charles Shelby, former Director of the Association of the Miraculous Medal, writes about Fatima and God’s message to us not only in 1917, but now. Information about the Association’s 2017 pilgrimage to Fatima is also included in this issue of the Bulletin, and a new Votive Light card for the Christmas season and bleak winter months is featured. To learn more about our new Charitable Gift Annuity program, be sure to read the Winter Bulletin.

Mary was conceived without sin, a fact we celebrate annually on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. Mary was the woman chosen by God to bring his Son into the world. God wanted Jesus to be untouched by sin, and Mary’s immaculate heart made this possible. Here at our Lady’s Shrine, we honor Mary’s holy innocence by celebrating the Immaculate Conception Novena beginning on Thursday, December 8. To learn more about Mary’s Immaculate Conception and its meaning for us, read Fr. Kevin’s letter.
