As this year’s Christmas Novena of Masses comes to a close, everyone here at Mary’s Association, along with the Vincentian priests and brothers serving at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, wish you and your family a blessed and peace-filled Christmas season!  

May your home be a haven of love and prayer as you strive to reflect the perfection of the Holy Family in living out God’s will. Here is our Christmas prayer for you.   

Our office will be closed December 25 – 27 so that the Association’s staff can celebrate Christmas at home with loved ones. However, the beautifully decorated Saint Mary’s of the Barrens Church at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, as well as the Rosary Walk, grotto, and grounds, will remain open for your prayerful pilgrimage. The Visitor Center and Gift Shop will be closed on December 24 and 25, but will re-open on December 26.

“And the Word became flesh, and made his dwelling among us … ” (John 1:14a)

Jesus is the Word made flesh, Heaven’s answer to humanity’s fallen sinfulness. The humble and unreserved “fiat” of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God, delivered to all people the inestimable gift of eternal salvation in Jesus, God’s only begotten Son.  

Celebrate this Christmas with the Association of the Miraculous Medal during our annual Novena of Masses leading up to the birth of Our Lord and Savior. Add your intentions of adoration, repentance, thanksgiving, and intercession for remembrance.  

Your petitions will represent your prayerful presence here at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal from December 16-24. Request a Votive Light in honor of the Word made flesh, the Son of God, entrusted to us through the loving, tender care of Our Lady, full of grace!

How do you plan to share the gift of Jesus this Christmas? Spiritual remembrance Christmas cards make thoughtful gifts for loved ones near and far. Each of the three designs focus on the true meaning of this pivotal event in the history of the world. Each Christmas card you send offers your recipient a special remembrance in an octave of Masses beginning Christmas Day at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, and during a Mass offered by a Vincentian priest every week throughout 2024. Order today! Read Fr. Clay’s letter, which shares an endearing legend about a poor shepherd boy who’s given the greatest gift of all time.

Don’t forget to submit the names of your card recipients so they can share in the spiritual remembrance offered during the Christmas Octave of Masses and in a weekly Mass throughout 2024.

On that first Christmas, the Holy Family shared in the miracle of bringing forth a new life. The moment of the birth of the Christ on earth brought forth a new spiritual reality for all of humanity — the possibility of eternal salvation. Glory to God in the highest! 

Join the Association for its annual Christmas Novena of Masses to lift your heart and soul in grateful praise to the Father for the priceless gift of his Son, Jesus! Allow us to present your prayers of adoration, repentance, thanksgiving, and intercession to him through his and Our Blessed Mother, Mary.

Three beautiful spiritual remembrance cards for Christmas are now available and are perfect to send as spiritual gifts to loved ones near and far. Each design and sentiment focuses on the true meaning of God’s gift of salvation in the birth of his Son — the “One who saves,” the only One in whom true peace can be found. Most important, each Christmas card you send offers your recipient a special remembrance in an octave of Masses beginning Christmas Day at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, and during a Mass offered by a Vincentian priest every week throughout 2022. Order today! For even more inspiration, read Fr. Kevin’s letter that reflects on the themes of peace and salvation — along with a very special Christmas story involving the Miraculous Medal. 

Don’t forget to submit the names of your recipients so they can be placed near Mary’s Shrine Altar during the Christmas Octave of Masses.

“Come, they told me …” Like the Little Drummer Boy, we may feel we have little to offer our infant Savior. This year’s hardships and isolation may have left many people feeling too beaten down to march to the manger with much of a joyful heart. If that’s you, allow AMM’s Christmas Novena to help lift your heart and soul to heaven! When you present your prayers of adoration, repentance, thanksgiving, and intercession for others to Jesus through Mary, it is a sign of your love and devotion to our Lord and Redeemer! From December 16-24, your petitions will bring you spiritually present to the foot of the manger here at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, where you’ll share in our members’ hope-filled anticipation of the Savior’s coming. Request a Votive Light in this same spirit of praise and supplication. May our Lord shower your heart with joy this Christmas!

Christmas is fast approaching, and many of you are feeling overwhelmed by all the preparations of the season. If you are seeking a deeper encounter with Christ this Christmas, I encourage you to offer Jesus your prayers of thanksgiving. A perfect way to do this is to send me your Christmas petitions to be included in the Shrine’s Christmas Novena, December 16-24. Your intentions will be placed at our Lady’s Shrine for remembrance as we prepare for the coming of our Lord. You might also want to burn a Votive Light in thanksgiving for the blessings of the year. May our newborn Savior bless you this Christmas and may his Mother Mary watch over you and your loved ones.

A cherished Christmas tradition at our Lady’s Association is offering Christmas cards for you to send as spiritual gifts to relatives, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and anyone else in need of God’s loving grace. The cards will not only warm the hearts of those who receive them, but will also grant your recipients a share in an octave of Masses beginning on Christmas Day offered here at our Lady’s Shrine. This year we are excited to have three new Christmas cards available. Read Fr. Kevin’s letter about the faith of Mary as Mother of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Any intentions you send us will be placed at our Lady’s Shrine for remembrance in the Christmas Octave beginning on Christmas Day and ending on January 1.
