A cherished Christmas tradition at our Lady’s Association is sharing Christmas cards for you to send as spiritual gifts to relatives, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and anyone else in need of God’s loving grace. The cards will not only warm the hearts of those who receive them, but will also grant your recipients a share in an Octave of Masses beginning on Christmas Day offered here at our Lady’s Shrine. This year we are excited to offer three new Christmas cards. Read Fr. Kevin’s letter about the power of creating lasting Christmas memories with your loved ones. Any intentions you send us will be placed at our Lady’s Shrine for remembrance in the Christmas Octave beginning on Christmas Day and ending on January 1. Request your Christmas cards today and send us your intentions.

When our Blessed Mother appeared to young Catherine Labouré in 1830, she foretold the evil and sorrow of the revolutions of 1830 and 1832 in France. The situation back then seemed hopeless, just as it does for so many today. But no situation is hopeless when Mary, the Mother of Jesus, steps in! She gave us the Miraculous Medal which has brought us hope in times of despair. The Association here in Perryville, Missouri, continues Mary’s mission of hope by bringing people to Jesus through Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. Allow the Association to pray with you. Send your petitions for remembrance in our annual Miraculous Medal Novena, November 18-26, and request Votive Lights to burn.  Read Fr. Kevin’s letter about how Mary is waiting to hear from you. To help you remember to pray and ask for God’s graces, request your 15-month Miraculous Medal Planner for 2019-2020. As you write your own scheduled dates and events, it will remind you that Mary brings Jesus to you every day of your life!

It is hard to imagine that it has been 100 years since the Association of the Miraculous Medal began in Perryville, Missouri.  As we celebrate together the Association’s centennial anniversary, send us your prayer intentions to be included in the special Mass at our Lady’s Shrine on October 14 at 2:00 p.m., CT. I also invite you to burn Votive Lights at the Shrine as a sign of your prayer to Mary for her miraculous intercession for your intentions. Read Fr. Kevin’s letter with more information about the Association’s 100th anniversary, and our October event.

If someone close to you is grieving the loss of a loved one, I invite you to send them our new Memorial Remembrance Card, and send me the name of the departed person so he or she can be remembered in the prayers and daily Mass here at the Shrine for one year. Mary’s image on the card inspires us to realize that she stands by us in our sorrow just as she stood by Jesus as he died for us on the cross. You might also want to burn a Votive Light for your departed loved one. Read more about the love and comfort Jesus and his Blessed Mother have for us in Fr. Kevin’s letter.

Do you remember reciting the Guardian Angel prayer as a child or to your children? As our students, teachers, and staff members return for a new school year, let us remember that in his love, God really does commit each one of his children to the spiritual protection of a guardian angel. The Association has a new Guardian Angel Back to School Votive Light card to let a loved one know you are praying for them. If you know someone returning to school – a child, teenager, adult, teacher, or staff member, please send me their names so they may be included in the prayers and Masses offered at our Lady’s Shrine for the entire school year.  You might also want to give those returning to school their very own Miraculous Medal attached to a lobster-claw clasp. Read Fr. Kevin’s letter about returning to school.

The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary is Saturday, September 8. The Association of the Miraculous Medal has a beautiful tradition of remembering Mary’s birthday each year. Beginning on September 8, and lasting for eight days, an octave of prayer will be offered at our Lady’s Shrine.  Send me your petitions to be remembered here at the Shrine during this special octave of prayer honoring our Blessed Mother and burn Votive Lights for family and friends. Mary loves us beyond our greatest imagination, and so as our heavenly Mother and the Mother of God, her prayer is truly miraculous. When we offer her our united petitions, Jesus hears and answers them. Read Fr. Kevin’s letter about Mary’s birthday.

“My child, the good God wishes to charge you with a mission.”  On July 18, 1830, Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal spoke these words to Sister Catherine Labouré, a novice of the Daughters of Charity in Paris, France. As we celebrate the 188th anniversary of Mary’s apparition to Saint Catherine, let us remember we, too, are Mary’s children. God wishes to charge us with the same mission of sharing his loving goodness with others. I invite you to send your petitions and burn a Votive Light at our Lady’s Altar, asking our Blessed Mother to obtain God’s graces for you, your family, and the entire world. They will be remembered in the Mass and prayers offered at the Shrine on July 18, the anniversary date.  Thank you for following Saint Catherine’s example and boldly accepting God’s mission given to us by our Lady.

Beginning Monday, August 6, 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. Please send me any special prayer intentions you have. We will place them at our Lady’s Altar and remember 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. Read Fr. Kevin’s Assumption message to learn more about the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The Solemnity of the Assumption provides us with a wonderful opportunity to honor Mary, glorious in heaven, always interceding for us!

Fathers teach. They provide, guard, and protect. And most importantly, they love!  Join us in praying for dads, granddads, godfathers, step-fathers, foster fathers, and all men shouldering the awesome responsibility of fatherhood. Send me the names of your father figures, along with your special prayer intentions to be included in our special Father’s Day Mass here at our Lady’s National Shrine on June 17.  As a sign of your prayerful devotion, you can also burn a Votive Light in their honor or memory.  Your loved ones and intentions will also be remembered throughout the month of June.
