News from the Association

In the first issue of the Miraculous Medal Bulletin, Fr. Kevin talks about life being one beautiful, ongoing remodeling project. He states that the remaining Bulletin articles this year will explore the models of heroic virtue who will help remodel us in the image of Jesus. This will include the lives of some great saints who bring us closer to Jesus through their intercessory prayers. Don writes about the deaths of his parents and how they are with him always. Fr. Ramson’s article touches base on Lent and temptations. You will also find information about our Two Million Medals Campaign that we are kicking off this year along with an invitation to our annual May Procession. The spring Bulletin contains our 2019 Spring Gift Brochure. Look for new items as well as the other religious items suitable for First Communion, Confirmation, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day. Our new Easter Cards are also introduced. We hope you will take time to read these articles and others in the 2019 Spring Bulletin.

Pray. Act. Commit. These are the three words Fr. Kevin uses for simple steps in making any decision, especially when it comes to leaving a legacy for the future.  The first Rays of Light Newsletter for 2019 explains how to pray, act, and commit when it comes to making a lasting gift to the Association of the Miraculous Medal.  You will also read about annuities and how they can work to make a stable investment for yourself. With a little bit of planning, you can leave behind a treasure of prayer, intercession, and discipleship for generations to come.

Three years ago the Association set and achieved an ambitious goal of distributing one million Miraculous Medals as a gift presented to our Lady on her birthday, September 8. This year, as a way of beginning the Association’s next 100 years of service, and with the power of so many great members, we are setting a new goal of distributing two million Miraculous Medals by our Lady’s next birthday. We hope you will join us in our efforts. Read Fr. Kevin’s letter about the hopeful message of the Miraculous Medal.

If you are looking for a way of sharing miraculous grace that comes only from our Lord in a gift for memorable occasions like Baptism, First Communion, Confirmation, weddings, and anniversaries, or for the passing of a loved, 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 Fr. Kevin’s letter which explains our Perpetual Memberships and the spiritual benefits bestowed upon those enrolled.

You are invited to join us in spirit for a very special novena beginning January 14 and continuing through January 22 to celebrate the Espousal of Mary to Saint Joseph. Send me your petitions for remembrance throughout the novena as well as on the feast day itself, January 23, and burn Votive Lights as a sign of your prayer. In this novena we ask them to pray for us and our families. Mary and Joseph both took a leap of faith when they said “yes” to become the parents of our Lord, Jesus Christ. They resigned themselves to the will of God and trusted in his wisdom and plan. On the feast of the Espousal of Mary, January 23, all of us are called to our own leap of faith—to abandon our personal desires for those of the Lord. Look to imitate Mary and Joseph who faithfully placed themselves in the hands of God.

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! 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 the 70th miracle of Lourdes which occurred in 2008 and was officially declared attributable to Our Lady of Lourdes on February 11, 2018.

Christmas is fast approaching, and many of you are feeling overwhelmed by all the preparations of the season. If you are seeing a deeper encounter with Christ this Christmas, I encourage you to offer Jesus your prayers of thanksgiving. A perfect way to do this is to send me your Christmas petitions to be included in the Shrine’s Christmas Novena, December 16-24. Your intentions will be placed at our Lady’s Shrine for remembrance as we prepare for the coming of our Lord. You might also want to burn a Votive Light in thanksgiving for the blessings of the year. May our newborn Savior bless you this Christmas and may his Mother Mary watch over you and your loved ones.

Our Blessed Mother was conceived without sin, a fact we celebrate annually on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, December 8. 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 Octave of Masses beginning on Saturday, December 8. Submit your petitions to our Lady’s Shrine today to have them remembered during the eight days of Masses, and request Votive Lights as a sign of your prayer. During each day of the octave, say this prayer to Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception.

Read Our Winter Bulletin
In the 2018 Winter Bulletin, Father Kevin concludes his series reflecting on the closing address given by Pope Francis in 2017 at the Vincentian Family Symposium. All of us are asked to go out and make disciples of all nations. Don writes about unanswered prayers with the lingering question of “why” and Fr. Tom Hinni invites us to live in the joy that only Jesus gives, while Fr. Charles Shelby talks about “the best boss in the world.” You will also read about the Association’s 100th anniversary celebration that took place in October. A new Votive Light card is available to use during the bleak winter months. Spots are still available on our 2019 pilgrimages to France and Lourdes, and the river cruise in December. To see how you help us do our Lady’s work, a financial accountability report for 2018 is included. To learn more about the ways you can give a Year-End gift to the Association, be sure to read the Winter Bulletin.

Nearing Completion
We are just over two years into the restoration/renovation project for the historic Church, National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, grotto and grounds in Perryville, Missouri. The construction projects are nearly complete, and a few Marian statues are still being carved in Italy.  We thank you! If you’ve not been able to contribute financially but would still like to do so, we certainly welcome your assistance as we finalize this effort. Read Fr. Kevin’s letter containing more information about the restoration/renovation project.
