Association of the Miraculous Medal

Greetings from the Association of the Miraculous Medal in Perryville, Missouri, home to our Lady’s National Shrine.  Our mission is to bring Jesus Christ to the world by inspiring devotion to Mary.

When the Blessed Virgin appeared to Sister Catherine Labouré in Paris, France, in the year 1830, she gave Catherine (now St. Catherine) the design of a medal and told her that all who wear it will receive great graces. Since then, literally millions of Miraculous Medals have been distributed throughout the world, and testimony after testimony gives witness to Mary’s miraculous intercession.

Our Lady’s medal is not superstition, magic, or a “good luck charm.”  It is a beautiful and inspiring testimony to faith and the power of trusting prayer.  By wearing the medal, we are reminded to ask for our Blessed Mother’s intercession in our lives.  And in meditating on her maternal care for us, we have confidence as she presents our intentions to her Son, our Lord Jesus.

Healing oil, like the Miraculous Medal, is also a sign of our faith and a reminder of God’s immense love.  As the psalmist says, “You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.”  Request your Blessed Mother Oil now, which I personally blessed here at our Lady’s Shrine.

Its healing properties are found in the spiritual conversion of growing closer to our Lord - in prayer, in reading of sacred Scripture, and in reception of the Church’s sacraments, especially Holy Eucharist and Reconciliation.

Like the Miraculous Medal, this healing oil is not a “good luck charm” and is not a promise of physical healing.  However, the prayer and faith that it inspires can open up channels of grace and miraculous healing that are only possible through, with, and in our Lord Jesus.

Any offering you send today, allows us to carry on the mission given to St. Catherine Labouré, of bringing Jesus to the world through devotion to our Blessed Mother.  Also, please send in your prayer intentions to be placed at our Lady's Altar and remembered in the prayers at her Shrine.

Thank you for your devotion to our Lady, her Association, and her Son, Jesus Christ.  May all those who use this oil be blessed by the infinite, healing love of God!

Sincerely yours in our Lady,
