Association of the Miraculous Medal

Think for a moment of the “life landmarks” your family and friends may observe in 2022.

Perhaps you are anticipating a baby’s birth and Baptism, the celebration of a child’s First Communion, Confirmation, or graduation. A wedding or a milestone anniversary may be on your calendar. And though one never knows the day or time, you may face the passing of a loved one — or the relative of someone close to you.

Such occasions in life call for a meaningful gift that can convey the depth of your love and care. Of course, any nearby mall or online store carries thousands of things. But, nothing can offer the priceless value of a gift of prayerful remembrance.

Enrolling someone as a Perpetual Member of the Association of the Miraculous Medal is a very easy way to give this precious gift. Every perpetual member of AMM enjoys an ongoing share in the eternal spiritual benefits of prayers and Masses offered at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal in Perryville, Missouri, including:

• Remembrance in a monthly novena of Masses
• Two additional novenas, plus 30 other Masses each month

Think of your gift as a “present of presence” — you are ushering your loved one into God’s presence by way of prayerful intercession. You can use the enclosed certificate to announce their enrollment. Simply complete and send it to your loved one, then send us their name(s) using the enclosed form and envelope. The suggested offering for Perpetual Membership is $15 for each person, or $25 for a couple.

Your membership offering, as well as any additional gift you choose to make, helps the Association of the Miraculous Medal fulfill its mission. That mission is to prayerfully support each member in every season of life while we together draw all souls closer to Jesus through devotion to Our Blessed Mother Mary. A portion of your generosity maintains the magnificent National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal— a 40-acre haven of hope and healing. Offerings also support Vincentian priests and brothers in our ministries to serve God’s people in need.

As a parting word of encouragement, I share the wisdom Saint Teresa of Calcutta offered in a letter shortly before her death: “Pray especially to Our Blessed Mother Mary, placing all your intentions into her hands. For she loves you as she loves her Son. She will guide you in all your relationships so that peace may fill your life.”

Let your thoughtful gift of Perpetual Membership in AMM offer this same peace to your family and loved ones. And may Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal keep you always in her loving, maternal care.

Sincerely in Jesus and Mary,

Fr. Kevin McCracken, C.M.
Spiritual Director
