Association of the Miraculous Medal

Our Blessed Mother gave Saint Catherine Labouré the design of the Miraculous Medal in 1830. “Graces will abound for persons who wear it with confidence,” Mary promised the humble Daughter of Charity novice.

I invite you to learn more about the medal (and us) at Sharing Miraculous Medals with friends and family members is a thoughtful gesture to let them know God’s love and grace are free gifts for the asking!

One of the main ministries of the Association of the Miraculous Medal is to get Mary’s medals into the hands of those who need one most. 

You may ask for up to 100 free, blessed oxidized Miraculous Medals. These more modestly designed medals come affixed to a beautiful card sharing the story of Our Lady’s appearance to Saint Catherine.

You may share your personal intentions and/or request a Votive Light to burn here at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal for any loved ones in special need of prayer. As a member of AMM, you’ll share in Mary’s promise and be remembered in the daily Mass and prayers of the Vincentians at the National Shrine in Perryville, Missouri, throughout the year.

Here are a few stories members have shared to tell us the difference their Miraculous Medal has made in their own life:

“Our family suffered the tragic loss of my younger brother. I found a Miraculous Medal prayer card and started to pray every day. I promised Mary I would get the actual medal as soon as I could. A few days later, I received a beautiful Miraculous Medal from Our Lady’s Association. I am so grateful to have this medal to hold or wear while I pray.”

“At age 44, I attended a Catholic Mass [for the first time] and felt spiritual arms around me. I knew I wanted to be Catholic. Now I can’t wait until I receive more Miraculous Medals to hand out to others! I feel Our Lady’s love every time I wear it and JOY when I share it with others.”

“During high school, a teacher gave me a Miraculous Medal to say “thanks” for helping with altar service. From the moment I put it on, I felt I couldn’t be without it — it gave me a feeling of being protected and blessed. I had no idea it was called a “Miraculous” Medal until recently. I was heartsick when I lost it in college. Now I realize it was to be found by somebody who needed Our Lady’s blessing more than I did.”

Our Lady will keep her promise of showering God’s graces on all who put their faith and confidence in her intercession.

Thank you for drawing closer to Jesus by joining the family of the Association of the Miraculous Medal. May God continue to bless your efforts to serve him, and may you, by the divine graces poured into your life through Our Lady, continue to draw ever closer to him.

Yours in Jesus and Mary,

Fr. Clayton Kilburn, C.M.
Spiritual Director
