Join fellow members of the Association of the Miraculous Medal in celebrating Our Blessed Mother’s Immaculate Conception. This is the solemn feast of God’s gracious gift to Mary in preserving her from the stain of original sin. 

Appearing to Catherine Labouré in 1830, Our Blessed Mother called upon all people to invoke her as “conceived without sin” — the very phrase emblazoned on the medal she instructed Catherine to create and promote.

On December 8, 1854, Blessed Pope Pius IX released a document defining the dogma of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In the document he states, “In the first instance of her conception, by a singular privilege and grace granted by God, in view of the merits of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the human race, was preserved exempt from all stain of original sin.”

Take a moment now to entrust your Immaculate Conception intentions to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. They will be placed near Mary’s Altar at the National Shrine in Perryville and remembered throughout AMM’s eight-day octave of Masses beginning December 8.

You are also invited to recite this prayer daily during the octave to enhance your observance of this feast. Requesting a Votive Light to burn is another special sign of your love for the Mother of God — God’s pure and holy Queen through whom every grace and favor flow to us!

All Souls’ Remembrance

Your prayers for dearly departed loved ones are a powerful spiritual gift that can hasten their journey toward full and everlasting union with God. Join the Association’s observance of All Souls Day at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal on November 2. Sharing the names of deceased relatives and friends assures them of a special remembrance throughout the month of November as well as during the month of the anniversary of their passing. In his all-powerful existence that transcends the limits of earthly time, God can apply the merits of your prayers to assist your departed loved one. What a powerful gift this is! You may also request a Votive Light  to burn for your deceased loved ones. Father Kevin’s letter tells more about All Souls Day.
