Association of the Miraculous Medal

Beginning August 7, at 8:00 a.m. CT, we will honor our Blessed Mother here at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal with a very special Assumption Novena of Masses.

On each of these nine days we will celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in devotion to Mary, asking her to obtain for us God’s infinite graces.  Do you know someone, perhaps a spouse, child, grandchild, or friend, in need of Jesus’ loving mercy? 

Please, send me their names as well as any special prayer intentions you have.
We will place them at our Lady’s Altar and remember each of them in the nine Assumption Masses we celebrate, including the Solemnity Mass on August 15.
You may also wish to burn a Votive Light at the Shrine as an expression of your desire to honor Mary and seek her intercession.  Click here to send a donation which will help the Association bring others to Jesus through Mary.

Your kindness will also assist the Vincentian community in its ministries of evangelization and service to the poor. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Because of her Immaculate Conception, Mary was preserved from original sin and all of its effects, including bodily corruption.  For this reason, when her work on earth was finished, the Mother of God was taken up, body and soul, into heavenly glory. 

The Solemnity of the Assumption
provides us with a wonderful opportunity to honor Mary, glorious in heaven and always interceding for us.  Our Lady is indeed "blessed among women," and we hope that saying this prayer will help you honor her and be drawn closer to Jesus. Join us in spirit as we pray for you and all the Association's members during the Assumption Novena, August 7-15.

You are in my prayers. May Jesus bless you, and may our Lady of the Miraculous Medal keep you in her care.

In the love of Mary, assumed into heaven,

Fr. Oscar Lukefahr, C.M.
Spiritual Director
