As teachers and students prepare to return to the classroom, please join AMM members in praying for them. Share the names of those you’d like remembered in the daily Mass and prayers offered at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal throughout the coming school year. For a suggested offering of $10 each, you may also request the “Backpack Mary Medal” with a lobster claw clasp to give as a thoughtful back to school gift for a special child, grandchild, or teacher. You may also request up to 100 free, blessed Miraculous Medals to distribute to Catholic schoolchildren, educators, and family members. Each medal comes on an attractive story card explaining its origin. (Browse AMM’s online gift shop for more medal options, Votive Light cards, and more.)  As Father Clay’s letter reminds us, Mary desires to bring her children to the fullness of truth. She inspires teachers and students who are open to her promptings.  

 Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom, pray for us!

Thursday, July 18, marks 194 years to the day since Our Lady first appeared to Sister Catherine Labouré inside the Daughters of Charity Motherhouse in Paris. The Blessed Virgin spoke with the future saint for over two hours. The depth and warmth of this personal conversation is unlike any other ever recorded. Mary assured Catherine that heaven’s graces would be shed upon all who asked for them with confidence. Join with fellow AMM members in observing this joyous anniversary. Send your special intentions to be placed near the Blessed Mother’s Altar for remembrance at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. You may also burn a Votive Light inside the Shrine’s beautiful Votive Light Room. Finally, this video highlights a statue on the Shrine grounds depicting that moment when Catherine took Mary’s hands in complete trust and devotion. You can do the same by sharing your needs with the Queen of Heaven, who desires to obtain for you heaven’s limitless graces and favors.

Send your petitions and burn Votive Lights at Our Lady’s National Shrine here in Perryville, Missouri, for the Mother of Divine Grace Novena. Your petitions will be remembered in our daily Mass and prayers throughout the nine days of the novena and on the feast of the Mother of Divine Grace on Tuesday, July 23.  As Saint Cyril of Alexandria prayed, “Hear us, dear Mother, as our voices humbly tell your love’s story. Gifts beyond reckoning you pour out in bounty, rich rain of blessing dropped on hill and meadow where you still shelter your devoted offspring ... Grant then your favor, quick to heed and answer; may these our fervent prayers win grace like starlight, keen, constant, tracing out a way to heaven through our profound night.”  

You are also invited to recite this prayer to Our Lady throughout the nine days of this novena.

Each year, the Church celebrates the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary on September 8. AMM continues its tradition to honor Mary’s birth, which this year falls on the 23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time. The Association will observe an octave of prayer beginning September 8 and concluding on September 15, the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows. You are invited to entrust your intentions to the Mother of God. Mary welcomes your devotion, your prayers for a loved one, or a simple expression of your gratitude to the spiritual Mother who loves you more than even the best earthly mother could. You may also burn a Votive Light in Our Lady’s honor, representing your special affection for the Immaculate Mother of Our Lord. Read Fr. Clay’s letter to learn more about the birthday candle being created by thousands of faithful members.

The just walk in integrity; happy are their children after them! — Proverbs 20:7

Celebrate the loving fathers, grandfathers, foster fathers, and father figures in your life. Whether they are living or deceased, you can offer the gift of prayer by sending the names of your loved ones for remembrance. We will remember them during the Association’s Mass on June 16 at 11:00 a.m., CT, and during the daily Mass and prayers at Our Lady’s Shrine throughout the month of June. You may also request a Votive Light to burn for your loved ones as another sign of your affection.

You are invited to join fellow AMM members in praying this Father’s Day prayer.

Don’t miss out on reading AMM’s 2024 Summer Bulletin. In this issue, Father Clay discusses the five Vincentian virtues and how we can demonstrate them in our lives. A new Votive Light card is available to help you celebrate love and friendship, offering your recipient a share in prayerful remembrance. An East Coast AMM member shares a dramatic story of healing and his devotion to Our Blessed Mother. And Don Fulford reflects on the virtuous practice of shining one’s light into others’ lives. Read the Summer Bulletin here.

Is a dear friend or relative in need of healing of body, mind, or spirit? The Association invites you to entrust that person to the loving care of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. 

Request Healing Remembrance Card(s) to let your recipient(s) know you’re thinking of them. You may also request cards to keep on hand for future use.

Each card announces the consoling gift of spiritual remembrance in prayer at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. Offerings you may choose to make when sending the cards enable AMM to spread devotion to Our Lady and support the ministries of the Vincentian priests and brothers of the Congregation of the Mission.  

Read Fr. Clay’s letter for an inspiring story of
hope and healing connected with these cards.

Finally, if you send AMM the name of your recipient, your loved one will be remembered in the daily Mass and prayers here at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal in Perryville, Missouri, for as long as there is a need for healing.
