Association of the Miraculous Medal
News from the Association
Blog Home > Category > What's New
In the summer issue of the Miraculous Medal Bulletin, Fr. Kevin talks about Christ inviting us to “welcome” the stranger like Saint Vincent de Paul did. The image of the modern stranger may be different from Saint Vincent’s time, but the stranger’s condition has not changed. Don’s article compares the ‘weeds of life’ to the weeds in our yard. Both Fr. Ron Ramson and a Daughter of Charity talk about their personal experiences following the Vincentian charism. In this issue you will also find highlights from both the Perryville and Montebello May Processions, and highlights from the Association’s pilgrimage to Portugal and Spain. Read the Summer Bulletin for these articles and more.

Here at our Lady’s Shrine we will celebrate a very important holy day, the Solemnity of the Ascension, on Sunday, May 28, with Mass at 11:00 a.m., CDT. The Ascension is a core belief of our Catholic faith, and we affirm this every Sunday or anytime we profess the Nicene or Apostles’ Creed. I invite you to send your prayer requests and to burn Votive Lights in celebration of our Lord’s Ascension. Christ is calling for you, for me, and for every soul ever conceived. When you send your intentions to our Lady’s Shrine, our Blessed Mother will bring your requests to her Son and he will help you.

The best gifts are those that express God’s love. One such gift from our Lady’s Association is a Perpetual Membership. It’s an ongoing share in the spiritual benefits of Masses and prayers offered here at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. It’s a gift suitable for any occasion—a birth, Baptism, First Communion, Confirmation, wedding, anniversary, graduation, memorial, or as a gesture of thanks. Read more about our Perpetual Memberships and the spiritual benefits bestowed upon those enrolled.

Jesus is the Divine Physician. He worked miracles of healing during his life on earth, and he continues working miracles of healing now, especially through the intercession of his and our Blessed Mother Mary.  Our Lady promised that she would obtain God’s grace for all who seek her intercession. By using our Healing Remembrance Certificate, to bring comfort and strength to someone suffering from illness, injury, or emotional pain, you are asking Mary to intercede during their time of suffering and to bring her Son’s miraculous healing.  Read more about Mary’s healing intercession in Fr. Kevin’s letter.

On Monday, May 1, Fr. Kevin McCracken, C.M., Don Fulford, and a group of 54 pilgrims will begin the Association’s pilgrimage to Portugal and northwestern Spain. While in Portugal, the group will visit Fatima during their 100th Anniversary of our Lady appearing to the three shepherd children. Please join us in spirit and prayer on this journey of faith by sending your petitions to be remembered in Mass each day of the pilgrimage. Follow the pilgrimage itinerary and Mass schedule, and recite the prayer to our Lady of the Miraculous Medal each day of the pilgrimage. You can also follow Fr. Kevin, Don, and the other pilgrims each day of their pilgrimage on our homepage, Facebook, or Twitter. Request one of our pilgrimage souvenir gifts as part of your spiritual participation in this year’s journey.

Mother's Day Remembrance
On Mother’s Day, we remember our mothers, grandmothers, daughters, and all the mother figures in our lives who love us without condition.  The Association has a new Mother’s Day card which includes a prayer for the one who receives it, a remembrance in the Association’s Mass on Mother’s Day, May 14, and during the month of May. Send me your petitions and the names of your loved ones to be remembered here at the Shrine. Read Fr. Kevin’s inspiring Mother’s Day message about the love our Blessed Mother has for each of us.

Please send me your Annunciation Novena intentions and request Votive Lights to burn at our Lady’s Shrine.  The novena begins Saturday, March 25, and we want to remember you and your prayer requests throughout the nine days. On the feast of the Annunciation, the Church celebrates Mary’s “yes” to God.  The angel Gabriel appeared to her and said, “Behold you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name him Jesus” (Luke 1:31). We hope you will come, in person or in spirit, to our Lady’s Altar in prayer during our Annunciation Novena, and let Mary’s ‘yes’ be your ‘yes’ too!

Easter Blessings!
Easter is the glorious celebration of life over death.  Jesus is risen! Read Fr. Kevin’s message about the resurrection of Jesus being the good news that sin is powerless over God’s grace and mercy. Send me your petitions to be remembered here at the Shrine in our Easter Octave of Masses beginning on Easter Sunday and concluding on Divine Mercy Sunday.  Burn Votive Lights for family and friends. To help you announce the Easter blessings promised to us by Jesus, send our new Easter card to someone you love.  When you do so, you will not only be sharing the good news of Jesus’ promise to us, but you will also be offering your loved one a spiritual remembrance in our Easter Octave of Masses.

In the spring issue of the Miraculous Medal Bulletin, Fr. Kevin talks about celebrating the 400th anniversary of the Vincentian charism and what that means for Catholics.  Don writes about using our time on earth, especially during the 40 days of Lent, to focus on prayer and putting faith into action. An invitation to our annual May Procession is also included in this issue of the Bulletin. We hope you will take time to read these articles and others in the 2017 Spring Bulletin. Gifts in our 2017 Spring Gift Brochure are now available for request.  Check out the new items as well as the other religious items suitable for First Communion, Confirmation, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day.
