Photos from the Rome Symposium
In celebration of the 400th anniversary of the founding of our Vincentian charism, over 11,000 members of the International Vincentian Family gathered in Rome on October 12 for 4 days of meetings and worship.  The highlight was a Papal Audience on October 14, 2017.   The Pope spoke about our charities being born of the tenderness and compassion of St. Vincent for the poor and marginalized.  Six staff members of the Association of the Miraculous Medal in Perryville, Missouri, were blessed to attend this special event.

The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary is Friday, September 8. The Association of the Miraculous Medal has a beautiful tradition of remembering Mary’s birthday each year. Beginning on September 8, and lasting for eight days, an octave of prayer will be offered at our Lady’s Shrine.  Send me your petitions to be remembered here at the Shrine during this special octave of prayer honoring our Blessed Mother or burn Votive Lights for family and friends. Mary loves us beyond our greatest imagination, and so as our heavenly Mother and the Mother of God, her prayer is truly miraculous.  When we offer her our united petitions, Jesus hears and answers them.

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.

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.
