The first letter is from Virginia.
My mother started to lose her three year battle with ovarian cancer last spring. That’s when my two siblings and I began encountering blessings from our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. My brother in Florida had made plans to visit my mother in June, but a friend told him she had a strong feeling he should visit immediately. As they talked, his eyes were drawn to the sidewalk where he found a Miraculous Medal. He brought the medal with him and pinned it on our mother’s clothing. He was able to spend a few good days with her at home. Mother continued to wear the medal he gave her. After mother died, the three of us were going through her apartment and kept finding Miraculous Medals in random drawers – enough for several family members to wear at the funeral Mass. We thank our Lady for her intercession. She revealed God’s love to us in a special way and at a critical time. As my mother always said, “There’s much to be grateful for.”
The second letter is from Florida.
My mother and niece visited the Shrine last year. My niece took some of the free Miraculous Medals from the Shrine to hand out to friends and family in Florida. One of the friends was going through a rough breakup with a guy. It got so bad that the friend sought help from a doctor for anxiety medication. My niece, who is very religious, gave her friend a Miraculous Medal and told her it was from her hometown in Perryville. She explained to her friend that she should wear it around her neck, but that she could also put it in her pocket, wallet, etc. Later, when my niece and her friend were visiting, the friend mentioned she put the medal on a chain and began wearing it. She immediately felt peace and hasn’t taken the medal off. She was also able to stop taking the medication for anxiety.
