When Elvis Presley died in 1977, he didn’t have a will or other plan so over 70% of his roughly $10 million estate went to pay taxes and fees. Sitting down with a professional is the key to passing on assets from one generation to the next while avoiding needless taxes. In the first Rays of Light for 2020, Fr. Kevin explains how communication with your family and professional planner is so important in establishing a will. With a little bit of planning, you can leave behind a treasure of prayer, intercession, and discipleship for generations to come.

Miracles Really Do Happen!
The hopeful message of the Miraculous Medal and Mary’s promise is, “All who wear it will receive great graces.”  The Association of the Miraculous Medal in Perryville, Missouri, carries out our Lady’s request of inviting men and women of the world to share in Mary’s promise. I invite you to send me your prayer intentions to be remembered at our Lady’s Shrine and to burn a Votive Light as a sign of your commitment and prayers. Help us to continue our mission of following Mary’s request of distributing the Miraculous Medal to all the world and to every person by requesting yours today. Read Father Kevin’s letter about the Miraculous Medal and Mary’s powerful intercession.

In the 2019 Winter Bulletin, Father Kevin concludes his series on the universal call to holiness—sainthood. All of us are asked by God to serve him, to love him, and to be with him forever. Don reflects on those family members who have passed away, but vividly remembers the gifts of time, love, and grace he shared with them. A new Votive Light card is available to use during the winter months to share with someone who is in your thoughts and prayers. Read about our volunteer program and how we reached our goal of distributing two million Miraculous Medals in 2019. To see how you help us do our Lady’s work, a financial accountability report for 2019 is included. To learn about opportunities for making a Year-End gift to the Association, be sure to read the Winter Bulletin.

Our Blessed Mother was conceived without sin, a fact we celebrate annually on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, December 8. Because the second Sunday of Advent is celebrated on December 8 this year, the feast of the Immaculate Conception is transferred to December 9. By God’s grace, Mary kept her heart immaculate – free of sin and full of love for God. Here at our Lady’s Shrine, we honor Mary’s holy innocence by celebrating the Immaculate Conception Octave of Masses beginning on Monday, December 9. Submit your petitions to our Lady’s Shrine today to have them remembered during the eight days of Masses, and request Votive Lights as a sign of your prayer. During each day of the octave, say this prayer to Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception.

Beginning December 5, Fr. Kevin McCracken, C.M., and a group of pilgrims will make a special Advent pilgrimage of prayer and remembrance. The river cruise on the historic Danube River will take the pilgrims to inspiring churches, Christmas markets, the important Marian Shrine of Our Lady of Svata Hora, and the original statue of the Infant Jesus of Prague. We hope you will join us in spirit and prayer on this journey of faith in Advent by sending your petitions to be remembered in the Masses and prayers offered during the pilgrimage. Say this Advent prayer and one Hail Mary each day of Advent, especially during the days of the Association’s pilgrimage, December 5–16. In commemoration of this pilgrimage, we are offering a beautiful authentic German Holy Family Wood Christmas Ornament. Supplies are limited.

Follow the pilgrimage itinerary, each day of the pilgrimage. You can also follow Fr. Kevin and the other pilgrims each day of their pilgrimage on our pilgrimage photo gallery, Facebook, or Twitter.

“You’re in good hands!” When we place our joys and concerns into the hands of Mary, she presents them directly to her Son, Jesus Christ. I invite you to allow us to place your most heartfelt intentions into the hands of a stunning bronze statue of our Lady here on the Shrine grounds as a symbol of your spiritual presence. Your intentions will be remembered in our upcoming octave of prayer in honor of Our Lady of the Rosary, October 7 -14. We are offering two unique gifts which can be requested individually or as a set. Read Fr. Kevin’s inspiring letter about placing our needs in the hands of Mary.

The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary is Sunday, September 8. The Association of the Miraculous Medal has a beautiful tradition of remembering Mary’s birthday each year. Beginning on September 8, and lasting for eight days, an octave of prayer will be offered at our Lady’s Shrine.  Send me your petitions to be remembered here at the Shrine during this special octave of prayer honoring our Blessed Mother and burn Votive Lights for family and friends. Mary loves us beyond our greatest imagination, and so as our heavenly Mother and the Mother of God, her prayer is truly miraculous.  When we offer her our united petitions, Jesus hears and answers them. Read Fr. Kevin’s letter about Mary’s birthday.

We shed teardrops in thanksgiving for a blessing received, in joy for a special accomplishment, or in sorrow because of illness or the death of a loved one.  Our Blessed Mother experienced both the heights of joy and the depths of sorrow. She wants to wipe away our tears and comfort us as she comforted Jesus. We invite you to join us during the Our Lady of Sorrows Novena of Masses, beginning on September 6, in preparation for the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows on September 15.  We will prayerfully remember your special intentions at our Lady’s Shrine. You may also wish to burn a Votive Light at the Shrine. Read Fr. Kevin’s letter about how to offer our intentions to Mary. Request one or both of our special gifts: our new Light Blue Teardrop Rosary and our new Teardrop Miraculous Medal and Chain that have been blessed here at our Lady’s Shrine.

“My child, the good God wishes to charge you with a mission.”  On July 18, 1830, Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal spoke these words to Sister Catherine Labouré, a novice of the Daughters of Charity in Paris, France. As we celebrate the 188th anniversary of Mary’s apparition to Saint Catherine, let us remember we, too, are Mary’s children. God wishes to charge us with the same mission of sharing his loving goodness with others. I invite you to send your petitions and burn a Votive Light at our Lady’s Altar, asking our Blessed Mother to obtain God’s graces for you, your family, and the entire world. They will be remembered in the Mass and prayers offered at the Shrine on July 18, the anniversary date.  Thank you for following Saint Catherine’s example and boldly accepting God’s mission given to us by our Lady.

Send your petitions and burn Votive Lights at our Lady’s National Shrine here in Perryville, Missouri, for the Mother of Divine Grace Novena, beginning June 19 and lasting nine days. Let our Blessed Mother intercede for you with her loving Son. Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal told Saint Catherine Labouré, “Come to the foot of the altar. Graces will be shed on all, great and little, especially upon those who ask for them.”  Our Lady is the Mother of Divine Grace, and she reminds us to ask for God’s grace. I also invite you to say this prayer to our Lady throughout the nine days of this novena.
