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.

Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal invites us to build strong families.  She wants us to start with our own family, to make it a family of prayer, love, and service. You imitate Mary when you show your love for others, especially when they are in need.  I invite you to send your petitions to the Shrine for remembrance. Ask our Lady to intercede with her Son for a particular family in need.  Send our new Family Prayer Remembrance Certificate to the family for whom you are praying. Your care, whether it’s during a joyous phase of life or a difficult time, will be a sign of Mary’s care.  Read what Fr. Kevin has to say about the importance of family prayer.

Our Lady’s Association has a long tradition of sending out Christmas cards each year.  This year is no exception. We are excited to offer three new Christmas cards that announce our Savior’s birth along with specific spiritual benefits during the Christmas season. These cards will offer your relatives, friends, co-workers, or anyone else in need, the Father's love found perfectly in the Nativity of our Lord. Read Fr. Kevin’s letter about Mary’s tender care and concern, especially during the Christmas season.  Any  intentions you send us will be placed at our Lady’s Shrine for remembrance in the Christmas Novena beginning on Christmas Day.  Send your petitions today.
