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.

On May 1, Fr. Kevin McCracken and a group of pilgrims will begin the Association’s pilgrimage to Portugal, which includes a stop in Fatima to help celebrate the 100th anniversary of Mary’s appearance to the three shepherd children.  Read Fr. Kevin’s letter about this miraculous apparition and his request for you to recite a rosary on the days the Association pilgrims will be in Fatima. We hope you will 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. Request either the Blue Crystal Rosary Bracelet or the Our Lady of Fatima Rosary in commemoration of this 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 and the other pilgrims each day of their pilgrimage on our homepage, Facebook, or Twitter.

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.

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.

This Valentine’s Day let the Association remember you and your loved ones in the 8:00 a.m. Mass at the National Shrine in Perryville, Missouri. Send us your intentions now to be remembered on February 14. The staff here at our Lady’s Association has assembled some beautiful, spiritual Valentine’s Day e-cards for you to personalize and share with those you love. You also have the option of requesting a Votive Light to burn for the person receiving the card.

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.
