Association of the Miraculous Medal

There’s something about candle light that warms the heart. Maybe it’s the childhood memory of huddling around a flame during winter power outages. Or perhaps it’s the image of quiet sanctuary walls waving with the yellow and orange reflection of Votive Lights. Compared to the modern light bulb, candle light feels almost alive. Its movement and warmth are qualities that speak to our souls.

Our Blessed Mother’s birthday is coming soon and, as a tradition, the Association of the Miraculous Medal here in Perryville, Missouri, will celebrate an octave of prayer to our Lady beginning September 8, and ending on September 15.

Please take a few minutes to send your prayer intentions so that I can present them to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal here at her National Shrine. You may also wish to burn a votive light.

Every one of us needs prayer, and none is stronger than the intercessory prayer of our Blessed Mother. When we, together as her children, offer her our united petitions, Jesus hears and answers them. The testimony below, of our Lady’s intercession, is living proof of this truth.

“Today, as we celebrate the birthday of our Blessed Mother, we received great news of her intercession for our granddaughter. Through the Miraculous Medal, Mary has interceded and our little one is free from peanut allergies. We have a long way to go with testing for tree nut allergies and other foods, but this is a major step in healing. Our Lady is always with us, helping and loving, and giving us strength. Thanks to our Blessed Mother and to all at AMM who pray with us.”

Thank you for your ongoing support. May God bless you and all those for whom you seek Mary’s loving intercession.

Sincerely yours in Jesus and Mary,

Fr. Kevin McCracken, C.M.
Spiritual Director
