Mother's Day Remembrance
As adopted daughters of Mary, every mother on earth can count on our Blessed Mother to instruct them in the ways of Christian motherhood. Join us in celebrating Mother’s Day this year by asking our Lady to obtain God’s grace for the mothers in your life. 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 13, and throughout 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 challenges of motherhood and the love our Blessed Mother has for each of us.

This is your invitation to include your Message to Mary in our Time Capsule Prayer Book. This prayer book will be inserted into a time capsule and then enclosed in the First Apparition Shrine being erected on the Shrine grounds. To send your message to Mary, click here and fill out the form. We will write your message on your book page here at the Association and include it in Our Lady's Time Capsule Prayer Book. If you are able to make a contribution, the funds will help create a name plate giving your home state representation at a specific section of our Lady’s Rosary Walk. We hope to have all 50 states and Puerto Rico represented. Read Fr. Kevin’s letter with more information about the time capsule and having home state representation.

Easter Blessings!
Jesus is risen, and so are we! Read Fr. Kevin’s message about the resurrection of Jesus redeeming mankind forever and why Easter is a time of hopeful transformation. 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 the three verbs, “to pray, to welcome, and to go,” as ways to deepen one’s Christian spirituality, especially during this season of Lent.  Don writes about using life’s lessons during Lent to live each day full of vim and vigor. In Fr. Ramson’s article he encourages us to open our hearts to the suffering of others, especially refugees. An invitation to our annual May Procession is also included in this issue of the Bulletin along with an invitation to attend the Association’s pilgrimage to Oberammergau in 2020. We hope you will take time to read these articles and others in the 2018 Spring Bulletin. Gifts in our 2018 Spring Gift Brochure are now available for request. Look for 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 Sunday, May 6, 2018. This year the procession will begin at 1:00 p.m., CT, instead of 3:30. Our new Rosary Walk will be used for the first time on this day so 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. 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. For more details about the annual May Procession, read Fr. Kevin’s letter.

When life presents us with a memorable occasion like Baptism, First Communion, Confirmation, weddings, and anniversaries, we look for ways to preserve the memory and honor the friends and family we love. The passing of a loved one is also an occasion to celebrate life and comfort those in sorrow. If you are looking for a gift that is truly fitting for these occasions, the Association recommends a Perpetual Membership. It’s an ongoing share in the spiritual benefits of Masses and prayers offered here at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal for the living or deceased. Read more about our Perpetual Memberships and the spiritual benefits bestowed upon those enrolled.

In Fr. Kevin’s Lenten Mission letter, he talks about the last time Jesus broke bread with his apostles before his passion and how the process of growing in holiness is a journey--not only through Lent, but every day of our life.  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 throughout the season of Lent to help you on your journey. Request this Last Supper triptych to remind you of God’s love for you.

You are invited to join the Association’s Octave of Masses, February 11-18, honoring Our Lady of Lourdes.  Send us your intentions now to be remembered and burn Votive Lights.  Mary, under her 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 octave of Masses here at the National Shrine of the Miraculous Medal honoring Our Lady of Lourdes. Read Fr. Kevin’s letter about the story of Dr. Alexis Carrell, an agnostic, who witnessed first-hand the miracle at Lourdes, France.

Read Our Winter Bulletin
In the 2017 Winter Bulletin, Father Kevin shares a summary and reflection on Pope Francis’ message given at the Vincentian Family Symposium in Rome in October. Don talks about the twists and turns in life we all go through, while Fr. Ramson invites all of us to bring one new person into one of the branches of the Vincentian tree. You will also read about the Association’s 100th anniversary which will be celebrated in 2018 and you will find information about the Association’s 2018 pilgrimage to France and Switzerland which ties into our anniversary. A new Votive Light card for the Christmas season and bleak winter months is featured as is our financial accountability report for 2017. To learn more about the ways you can give a Year-End gift to the Association, be sure to read the Winter Bulletin.

Our Blessed Mother was conceived without sin, a fact we celebrate annually on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. By God’s grace, Mary kept her heart immaculate – free of sin and full of love for God. Here at our Lady’s Shrine, we honor Mary’s holy innocence by celebrating the Immaculate Conception Novena beginning on Friday, December 8. Send your petitions to our Lady’s Shrine today to have them remembered during the Immaculate Conception Novena.  Burn Votive Lights as a sign of your prayer. To learn more about Mary’s Immaculate Conception and its meaning for us, read Fr. Kevin’s letter.
