When someone we love loses a family member or close friend, we want to reach out and show that we care. Our concern reflects the compassion of our Blessed Mother, who through her Miraculous Medal, has brought consolation and hope to tens of millions of people since she gave the medal to Saint Catherine Labouré in 1830.
To share Mary’s compassion, I am offering you a Memorial Remembrance Certificate for you to give to someone suffering the loss of a loved one. In doing so, you will imitate Jesus, who wept at the grave of his friend, Lazarus, and comforted Lazarus’ sisters, Martha and Mary.
Jesus still comforts people today, sometimes in miraculous ways. But most often, Jesus comforts the bereaved through his followers on earth. We are the Body of Christ, and Jesus wants us to bring his presence, comfort, and peace to others.
If you would like to bring Mary's motherly concern and the love of Jesus to the bereaved in a special way, please order and use a Memorial Remembrance Certificate as a gift for those who are important to you. Use it to offer prayer and comfort for someone suffering the loss of a loved one.
You can send the name or names of deceased loved ones to the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, and those loved ones will be remembered in prayers and Masses at the Shrine.
The Association of the Miraculous Medal promotes devotion to Mary and encourages people to wear her medal. Mary’s presence on the certificate will inspire others to realize that she stands by them in their sorrow just as she stood by Jesus as he died for us on the cross.
Another way to offer assurance of your care and your prayers is to burn a Votive Light at the Miraculous Medal Shrine for the deceased person and for the intentions of the bereaved.
Any donation you send will support the Association in its work of spreading devotion to our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. The Association is a ministry of the Vincentian community of priests and brothers, who follow in the tradition of St. Vincent de Paul working with the poor and educating the laity and clergy. Your gift will help them bring the Good News and love of Jesus and Mary to people around the world.
May Jesus bless you, and may our Lady of the Miraculous Medal watch over you and your loved ones.
Sincerely yours in Jesus and Mary,
