We hope you’ll enjoy the inspiring Advent and Christmas Reflections in this issue of the Bulletin newsletter, as well as the conclusion of the Marian Meditation statue stories. (Especially the two titles cherished by so many AMM members: Our Lady of Guadalupe and Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.) We’re eager to share with you an overview of our financial accountability report — good news made possible by thousands of AMM members who remain devoted to our ministry. See the new Votive Light Card for 2021 and order soon. Testimonials from our members are always a favorite among readers and can also be found in this issue.. 

This time of year also brings with it a humble invitation to consider providing for the future of Mary’s Association. Please prayerfully consider the opportunities shared in this issue of Rays of Light. We are deeply grateful for your commitment to our Lady’s Association.

From the moment she was conceived, our Lady was granted the divine grace of being preserved from the stain of original sin. Mary’s purity was necessary as she was to become the living Temple of the Son of God. Appearing to Saint Catherine Labouré in 1830, our Blessed Mother called upon all people to invoke her as “conceived without sin.” You are invited to join us in a prayerful, eight-day celebration--the December 8 Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. First, take a moment to entrust your intentions to our Lady. They will be placed near Mary’s Shrine Altar and remembered throughout the Octave of Masses beginning December 8. Then, recite this prayer daily from December 8-15. You may also wish to request a Votive Light to burn as one more sign of your love for Mary — God’s pure and holy Queen through whom every grace and favor flows to us!

Good stories are always in season, and you’ll find them aplenty in this issue of the Fall Bulletin Newsletter! Read about saints and angels … gifts and a grotto … voices from the past and a love story from the present … statues and cities, and much more. There’s an inspiring testimonial from a member in California who asked for Mary’s intercession during the COVID-19 outbreak. And don’t miss the call to pray the Rosary on election day! It’s all right here. Also, if you’re shopping for religious gifts for the coming Christmas season, check out the new Fall Gift Brochure.

Here at our Lady’s Shrine our Rosary Octave of Prayer will begin on Wednesday, October 7. AMM staff will pray the Rosary daily through next Wednesday, October 14. We hope you, too, will pray the rosary each of the eight days of this octave of prayer. Send us your intentions and the names of your loved ones to be remembered during the eight days of prayer. You may also burn Votive Lights for your special intentions. Pope Francis has urged all Catholics to pray the Rosary daily to unite us as one spiritual family and to help the Church in its time of trial. Saint Pope John Paul II taught that through this ancient prayer, we receive abundant grace, “as though from the very hands of the Mother of the Redeemer.”

Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal has touched the lives of hundreds of millions who have worn her medal and trust in her intercession. We continue Mary’s mission of hope by bringing people to Jesus through Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. In honor of our Lady, you are invited to send your petitions for remembrance in our annual Miraculous Medal Novena of Masses, November 18-26. You can also request Votive Lights to burn for your intentions. Read Fr. Kevin’s letter about how Mary is waiting to hear from you. As a reminder to ask our Lady for God’s graces, request your 15-month Miraculous Medal Planner for 2021-2022. As you write your own scheduled dates and events, it will remind you that Mary brings Jesus to you every day of your life!

When our Blessed Mother first appeared to Saint Catherine Labouré, she was seated, hands open as if asking the young novice to surrender her joys, worries, and intentions to Mary. Today, I pray that like Catherine did, you will spiritually entrust your cares to her, as well. I also invite you to send me your special intentions to be placed physically into the hands of our Lady’s bronze statue here on the National Shrine grounds in Perryville, Missouri. Your needs will be remembered throughout our October 7-14 octave of prayer honoring Our Lady of the Rosary. You may wish to order one or both of these devotional gifts to enrich your prayer journey. Fr. Kevin’s inspiring letter shares more about this wonderful opportunity!

Our Blessed Mother’s birthday is coming up on Tuesday, September 8. The Association of the Miraculous Medal has a beautiful tradition of celebrating Mary’s birthday each year with an octave of prayer beginning September 8, and ending on September 15.  Send me your petitions to be remembered here at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal during this special octave of prayer honoring our Blessed Mother, and burn Votive Lights for family and friends. When we offer her our united petitions, she hears them and presents them through her Son to our loving Father.  Read Fr. Kevin’s letter with more information about Mary’s birthday.

Imagine speaking to our Blessed Mother as Saint Catherine Labouré did 190 years ago on July 18,1830. On that date, Mary told Catherine that God wished to charge her with a mission. As we know, that mission was to promote and distribute the Medal of the Immaculate Conception—the Miraculous Medal. Mary said, “….graces will be shed on all, great and little, who ask for them.”  Mary invites each of us to rest our burdens and cares in her hands.  All we need to do is pray with confidence, asking for her intercession. She will listen and ask God to fill us with his grace. Send your prayer petitions and burn a Votive Light at our Lady’s Altar in time for the anniversary of our Lady’s first apparition to Saint Catherine on July 18. We will place your petitions there for remembrance in the daily Masses and prayers. Please wear and share the Miraculous Medal, remembering to frequently pray its inscription, “O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.”

Beginning Thursday, August 6, 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 help us enjoy heavenly glory at the end of our earthly lives. 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, and in 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 message about Mary’s Assumption. The Solemnity of the Assumption provides us with a wonderful opportunity to honor Mary, glorious in heaven, always interceding for us!

We all love a good story. In the summer issue of the Miraculous Medal Bulletin, Father Kevin’s message is about the powerful influence of stories in our lives and how the Holy Bible is the Story of stories. Don compares the mountains and valleys to the highs and lows of a well-lived life, and Father Ron writes about storytellers and expresses sympathy for those who have lost loved ones to the Covid-19 virus. The Summer Bulletin also contains a guide to Charitable Giving, information about three more of the marble statues on the new Marian Meditation Walk, and a personal testimony from a member who vouches for our Lady’s intercession. You will also find our new Votive Light Card “Prayers for You” that can be ordered. We hope you will take time to read these articles and more in the 2020 Summer Bulletin.
