As members of the Association of the Miraculous Medal, we embrace the call to encourage others to live in complete trust and humble surrender to Jesus as Mary did, appealing to Our Lady for all the graces needed in our lives.

How can you follow the example of Saint Catherine Labouré in practical, simple ways?

You can find opportunities to tell others the joyous story of her faith-filled life and her encounter with Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. You can request free, blessed Miraculous Medals attached to an explanation card to carry with you and to share with others. Similarly, for a suggested offering, you may order our beautiful double bookmark as a gift to anyone seeking the graces Mary promised through Catherine to all who turn to her in complete confidence.

It is through gifts great and small that AMM is able to mail millions of free, blessed Miraculous Medals each year. Will you support AMM’s ministry with a special contribution today? Your generosity will help ensure that Mary’s mission to share the Miraculous Medal continues for generations to come. And with your gift of $24 or more, request a copy of “The Illustrated Book of Mary,” a special hardback volume exploring Mary’s many devotional titles, prayers, information about feast days, and more.

In honor of Our Blessed Mother’s birthday on Thursday, September 8, we will begin an octave of prayer here at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. There’s no better occasion to entrust your intentions to the Mother of God. Maybe your intentions include a remembrance for a loved one’s healing, the soul of a deceased relative, someone’s return to the faith, or you want to offer a prayer of gratitude for favors and blessings received. Mary welcomes your special appeal as a sign of your faith in the goodness of her Son, Jesus. You may also burn a Votive Light in Our Lady’s honor. Its rays will symbolize your spiritual presence at the Shrine.  Read Fr. Kevin’s letter to learn more about the birthday candle being created by thousands of faithful members.

We also spread devotion to Mary with people around the world by sharing the Miraculous Medal she entrusted to Saint Catherine Labouré 191 years ago.

Request free Miraculous Medals on cards of explantion at any time. Our Lady keeps you in her heart, every moment of every day. Placing yourself in hers will bring you nearer to God. Know that you remain in our daily prayers. We look forward to hearing from you. For more information, read Father Kevin’s letter.

We will celebrate Our Blessed Mother’s birthday beginning Wednesday, September 8, here at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. There’s no better occasion to entrust to Mary all the intentions you hold close to your heart. Maybe it’s a special intention for yourself or a family member, prayers for a deceased relative, a plea for someone’s return to faith, or simply a prayer of gratitude for God’s goodness and Mary’s love in your life. Whatever it is, share your intentions here. We will lift them up to Our Lady throughout the eight days of our octave of prayer. You may also wish to burn a Votive Light in Mary’s honor. Its rays will add to the light and joy of our celebration! Read Fr. Kevin’s letter to learn more about the birthday candle members are joining together to create.

It was the night of July 18, 1830. With these words, Sister Catherine Labouré’s guardian angel announced the first appearance of Mary to the young Daughter of Charity. As we remember this anniversary during our Mass at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal on Sunday, July 18, you are invited to request Mary’s intercession for your special intentions. Your petitions will be placed at the foot of Our Blessed Mother’s Shrine Altar. You may also burn a Votive Light alongside the thousands already lit by fellow AMM members. Did you know that along the Shrine’s outdoor Rosary Walk stands a marble carving of Catherine’s first apparition of Our Lady? This video highlights the statue. It depicts that touching moment when Catherine knelt at Mary’s side in complete love and devotion.

What would you ask of Mary if you found yourself
suddenly kneeling beside her? Ask her now.

Please share your prayer intentions today as we prepare for a very special Assumption Novena of Masses beginning Friday, August 6, at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. Throughout the nine days, we will “lift each other” toward heaven, praying for one another’s needs through Mary’s promised intercession. The image of the Assumption, so vividly depicted here at the Shrine’s main altar, is a powerful reminder of the reward for our lifetime of faithful perseverance through trials of every sort. When we cling to the Blessed Mother in prayer, we are in a very real way “lifted up” with her along a journey marked by love and surrender to our Lord, the way to eternal life. 

This year’s Solemnity of the Assumption Mass begins at 11:00 a.m., CT, and will be live-streamed on AMM’s Facebook page. 

You may burn a Votive Light as an additional symbol of your prayerful presence for this joyous feast!

The Association of the Miraculous Medal will begin its annual Pentecost Novena of Masses here at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal this Friday, May 14. Please join your AMM family in prayer, adding your intentions alongside theirs. The petitions you share will be entrusted to Our Lady and rest before her Shrine Altar through the Solemnity of Pentecost on May 23. During the novena, say this prayer to the Holy Spirit. You may also request a Votive Light to burn as a visible sign of your loving, prayerful support shining in the lives of those for whom you’re praying.  
 
AMM carries a special gift depicting the Holy Spirit’s advocacy in our lives. The Holy Spirit Silver Cruciform Medal & Chain features an antique silver finish with red enamel accentuating the distinctive Dove centerpiece. Flanked by images of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Miraculous Medal, Saint Joseph, and Saint Christopher, this five-way medal also appeals for assistance with: "I am a Catholic – please call a priest" appearing on the reverse. “Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful.”

As Pope Francis has counseled, “By loving humbly, serving freely and joyfully, we will offer to the world the true image of God. The Spirit reminds us that we ... grow by giving.” 
 
Thank you for the prayerful support you extend to loved ones through your membership in Mary’s Association. May Our Lady obtain for you, and them, a generous share in the gifts of the Spirit to draw you ever closer to her Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ.
