“He will turn the heart of fathers to their sons, and the heart of sons to their fathers.” (Malachi 3:24) 

Celebrate the loving dads and father figures in your life. Whether they are living or deceased, you can offer the loving gift of prayer by 
sending the names of your loved ones for remembrance.

I invite you to join fellow AMM members in praying this prayer on Father’s Day:

The Summer Bulletin continues the theme of 2022 which highlights the Vincentian way of life. This issue focuses on the Daughters of Charity, the religious order of Sisters co-founded by Saints Louise de Marillac and Vincent de Paul. Father Kevin shares some highlights of the Daughters’ distinguished history, and Sister Kathleen Murray, D.C., reveals the heart of her Marian spirituality as a current member. Send a ray of sunshine to a loved one by requesting the new Votive Light card pictured on page 10. And don’t miss Don’s poignant remembrance of a friend whose life and vocation reflected the hard work and selflessness at the very heart of the Vincentian charism. There’s plenty more to enjoy in the Summer Bulletin. 

Do you know someone whose life is marked by “the Vincentian spirit”? We would love to hear about their life of faith. Call or write us anytime at 1-800-264-6279 or

We hope to see you at the Association’s annual tradition on Sunday, May 1, at 1:00 p.m., CT, here in Perryville, Missouri. Please join us in person or in spirit as we honor Our Blessed Mother. 

Making an offering is another way you can play an important part in the spiritual works of the Association of the Miraculous Medal. Gifts help spread devotion to Our Blessed Mother, who has promised to pour out graces and favors on all who appeal to her with confidence. Offerings also enable AMM to send free, blessed Miraculous Medals to anyone who asks.

Thank you for your faithfulness and generosity as we honor Mary throughout the month of May.

Our Lady’s Association invites you and your loved ones to view three sacred relics during the first two weekends in April at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.

This portion of a larger, permanent donation to the Shrine includes an authenticated piece of the True Cross; fragment of the table at which Jesus celebrated the Last Supper; and particles from the sites of Gethsemane, Via Dolorosa (the Way of the Cross) and Calvary.

The Lenten relics exhibit will be open to the public on April 2, 3, 9, and 10 from Noon – 4:00 p.m., CT, at 1805 West Saint Joseph Street in Perryville, Missouri, 63775.

According to the second edition of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, prayerful reflection in the presence of sacred relics has long been counted among the spiritual practices of faith-filled Christians:

“Besides sacramental liturgy and sacramentals, catechesis must take into account the forms of piety and popular devotions among the faithful. The religious sense of the Christian people has always found expression in various forms of piety surrounding the Church's sacramental life, such as the veneration of relics, visits to sanctuaries, pilgrimages, processions, the stations of the cross, religious dances, the rosary, medals, etc.”
(Paragraph 1674)

The Association of the Miraculous Medal pledges to serve as a faithful and diligent caretaker of the sacred relics which have been entrusted to us.  May they serve to inspire all people to draw closer to Our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. Learn more by calling 1-800-264-6279 weekdays from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., CT.  Send us your intentions to be remembered in the Mass at the Shrine on April 10 at 11:00 a.m., CT.

Read Fr. Kevin’s letter about this year’s “live and in person” May Procession which will take place Sunday, May 1, at 1:00 p.m., CT, here at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal in Perryville, Missouri.

Please join us in person or in spirit. Making an offering to support the ministry of Our Lady’s Association is another beautiful way to show your love for Mary. Your gift will help bring the Mother of God to people and — through her — bring all people into closer union with Christ Jesus. Your gift also assists Vincentian priests and brothers in their ministries of prayer and service. Thank you for your generosity. We hope to see you on May 1!

As part of AMM’s ministry to members, beautiful Easter cards are available upon request. Each card offers a special spiritual gift for your loved ones. Your recipient will be remembered in prayer on Easter Sunday and throughout the octave of Masses concluding on Divine Mercy Sunday. 

We’ll place any petitions you wish to include near Mary’s National Shrine Altar to be remembered beginning now through the conclusion of our Easter celebration. You are also invited to request a Votive Light to represent their spiritual presence at the Shrine this season. 

You can read more about the grace of hope and the gift of new life in
Father Kevin’s Easter letter.

Lent Begins Next Week

Send your special intentions to be placed near Mary’s Shrine Altar

Request Easter Cards to send to loved ones

Together, let us ask Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal to bring us into ever greater union with her Son, Jesus, who has saved us through his holy passion, death, and resurrection. “Behold, now is a very acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” 2 Corinthians 6:2

February 11 is the memorial feast of Our Lady of Lourdes and is also World Day of Prayer for the Sick as proclaimed by Saint John Paul II. Which of your family members and friends are in great need of healing?

Share your personal petitions for remembrance throughout AMM’s Our Lady of Lourdes Octave of Masses. We will place your requests near Mary’s National Shrine Altar. You are invited to pray this prayer daily and request a Votive Light to symbolize your presence here at the Shrine. May each of us place our trust in the Immaculate Conception that she may obtain for us all that we need. Fr. Kevin writes in his Lourdes letter about one of the most recently approved miracles associated with Saint Bernadette’s 1858 apparitions of Our Lady — a religious sister who went to Lourdes to ask healing for others, but ended up receiving her own miraculous cure!

“O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee. Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.”
