Association of the Miraculous Medal

Archaeologists at Jamestown, Virginia, the first permanent English settlement in North America, recently discovered something very fascinating.

They unearthed the remains of persons they believe to be the four most prominent figures of the original settlement, lying side by side under the altar of the settlement chapel. But that’s not even the most fascinating part.

Buried on top of the coffin of one of these Anglican settlers was a small silver box, and inside, possible Catholic sacramentals! There is speculation that at least one of these 17th century Anglicans might have been a secret practitioner of the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic faith!

History is amazing, especially when we learn about the Catholic heritage of our country’s early settlers!

Years from now, what will historians and archaeologists discover about you and me? What will they find on the grounds of our Lady’s National Shrine here in Perryville that tells the world how much you loved Mary, Jesus, and his Church?

I’m writing to invite your participation in something really exciting!

As part of the Association’s Restoration Campaign, “Our Lady’s Call: Promise. Preserve. Protect.”, we are offering members the opportunity to be included in our Time Capsule Prayer Book that will be inserted into a time capsule and then enclosed in the First Apparition Shrine being erected on the Association’s renovated grounds.

How gratifying to know that when that capsule is unearthed 100 years from now on the centennial of the restoration project, your name and message to Mary will be there for the world to see!

To memorialize your message to Mary in our Lady’s time capsule, simply fill out this form. We will write your message on your book page here at the Association and include it in the Time Capsule Prayer Book.

Thank you so very much for your prayers, your financial support, and for sending your special message to Mary to be included in our Lady’s time capsule.

May Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal envelop you in her loving, tender, maternal care. And may your participation in the Association’s time capsule be a powerful future witness to the world of just how much you loved her Son Jesus!

Sincerely in Jesus and Mary,

Fr. Kevin McCracken, C.M.
Spiritual Director

P.S. If you are able to make a contribution to accompany your time capsule book page, the funds will help create a name plate giving your home state representation at a specific section of our Lady’s Rosary Walk. We hope to have all 50 States and Puerto Rico represented, so please do help get your state on the walk!
