Join AMM's Rosary Octave
The Association’s annual Rosary Octave of Prayer will begin Thursday, October 7, the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary (originally known as “Our Lady of Victory”). Pope Leo XIII had a deep devotion to Our Blessed Mother, this feast, and its importance. “This devotion to the Queen of Heaven has never shone forth with such brilliancy as when the Church has seemed to be endangered by heresy … an intolerable moral corruption, or by the attacks of powerful enemies,” he wrote. We do well to entrust to Mary the urgent temporal and spiritual needs of our families and in our world. Please be among AMM members joining us from home to pray one Rosary daily for eight days. You are also encouraged to send your intentions to be remembered during the octave at Our Lady’s Shrine. The feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is a wonderful opportunity to burn Votive Lights for your needs, or simply as a gesture of praise and gratitude for blessings and favors Our Lady has already bestowed upon you and your loved ones. God has promised the triumph of life over death and good over evil. We implore Mary, through the most holy Rosary, to lead us to the ultimate victory we seek!

Miraculous Medal Novena
Our Lady awaits you to turn to her in confidence. She is your sign of hope, your help in adversity, and your most loving Mother at every moment. You can draw closer to her and her Son during a novena of Masses being held November 18-26 here at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. Take part in spirit by returning your personal prayer intentions to be placed near Mary’s Shrine Altar throughout the nine days and on November 27, the feast of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. You may also burn Votive Lights for your intentions. 

The Miraculous Medal remains a global force for accomplishing God’s will through the devotion of so many faithful wearers and sharers! From the moment the first “Medals of the Immaculate Conception” were delivered in 1832 until our own day, countless people have reported grace-filled blessings received through Mary’s intercession associated with the medal, and even favors they call “miraculous.”  

Fr. Kevin’s full letter shares more, including inspiring testimonials of several AMM members.

When we lose a family member or close friend, reaching out with kindness and compassion can be of great comfort. You can share the consoling gift of prayer by requesting this beautiful Memorial Remembrance Card to send to the bereaved. It offers the deceased loved one a remembrance in the daily Mass and prayers at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal for one year.

You may also burn a Votive Light at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal for your departed loved ones. 

Fr. Kevin’s letter shares more about the Memorial Remembrance Card, as well as the story of one member’s inspiring faith at the moment of his dear wife’s passing.

“Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” (1 Corinthians 15:55)

We will celebrate Our Blessed Mother’s birthday beginning Wednesday, September 8, here at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. There’s no better occasion to entrust to Mary all the intentions you hold close to your heart. Maybe it’s a special intention for yourself or a family member, prayers for a deceased relative, a plea for someone’s return to faith, or simply a prayer of gratitude for God’s goodness and Mary’s love in your life. Whatever it is, share your intentions here. We will lift them up to Our Lady throughout the eight days of our octave of prayer. You may also wish to burn a Votive Light in Mary’s honor. Its rays will add to the light and joy of our celebration! Read Fr. Kevin’s letter to learn more about the birthday candle members are joining together to create.

It was the night of July 18, 1830. With these words, Sister Catherine Labouré’s guardian angel announced the first appearance of Mary to the young Daughter of Charity. As we remember this anniversary during our Mass at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal on Sunday, July 18, you are invited to request Mary’s intercession for your special intentions. Your petitions will be placed at the foot of Our Blessed Mother’s Shrine Altar. You may also burn a Votive Light alongside the thousands already lit by fellow AMM members. Did you know that along the Shrine’s outdoor Rosary Walk stands a marble carving of Catherine’s first apparition of Our Lady? This video highlights the statue. It depicts that touching moment when Catherine knelt at Mary’s side in complete love and devotion.

What would you ask of Mary if you found yourself
suddenly kneeling beside her? Ask her now.

Please share your prayer intentions today as we prepare for a very special Assumption Novena of Masses beginning Friday, August 6, at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. Throughout the nine days, we will “lift each other” toward heaven, praying for one another’s needs through Mary’s promised intercession. The image of the Assumption, so vividly depicted here at the Shrine’s main altar, is a powerful reminder of the reward for our lifetime of faithful perseverance through trials of every sort. When we cling to the Blessed Mother in prayer, we are in a very real way “lifted up” with her along a journey marked by love and surrender to our Lord, the way to eternal life. 

This year’s Solemnity of the Assumption Mass begins at 11:00 a.m., CT, and will be live-streamed on AMM’s Facebook page. 

You may burn a Votive Light as an additional symbol of your prayerful presence for this joyous feast!

The Association of the Miraculous Medal will begin its annual Pentecost Novena of Masses here at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal this Friday, May 14. Please join your AMM family in prayer, adding your intentions alongside theirs. The petitions you share will be entrusted to Our Lady and rest before her Shrine Altar through the Solemnity of Pentecost on May 23. During the novena, say this prayer to the Holy Spirit. You may also request a Votive Light to burn as a visible sign of your loving, prayerful support shining in the lives of those for whom you’re praying.  
 
AMM carries a special gift depicting the Holy Spirit’s advocacy in our lives. The Holy Spirit Silver Cruciform Medal & Chain features an antique silver finish with red enamel accentuating the distinctive Dove centerpiece. Flanked by images of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Miraculous Medal, Saint Joseph, and Saint Christopher, this five-way medal also appeals for assistance with: "I am a Catholic – please call a priest" appearing on the reverse. “Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful.”

As Pope Francis has counseled, “By loving humbly, serving freely and joyfully, we will offer to the world the true image of God. The Spirit reminds us that we ... grow by giving.” 
 
Thank you for the prayerful support you extend to loved ones through your membership in Mary’s Association. May Our Lady obtain for you, and them, a generous share in the gifts of the Spirit to draw you ever closer to her Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Asking Mary’s intercession for a loved one’s physical or spiritual healing is one of the most comforting gifts you could offer. Mary, Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, has promised to obtain blessings for all who approach her in faith. Request your complimentary Miraculous Medal Healing Remembrance Card to send as a gift of comfort and prayer-filled hope to someone who is suffering in body, mind, or spirit. If you send AMM their name, your recipient will be remembered in Masses and prayers here at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal in Perryville, Missouri. You can also request to burn a Votive Light in their name, symbolizing your prayers for healing. Read more about Mary’s intercession for us and God’s grace in Fr. Kevin’s letter.
