You are invited to join the Association’s Octave of Masses, February 11-18, honoring Our Lady of Lourdes. Send us your intentions now to be remembered and burn Votive Lights.  Mary, under her titles of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal and Our Lady of Lourdes, is always ready to help her children. So many miracles at the healing pools of Lourdes, France, testify to the fact that Mary intercedes for us! This close connection between Lourdes and the Miraculous Medal is why we celebrate an octave of Masses here at the National Shrine of the Miraculous Medal honoring Our Lady of Lourdes. Read Fr. Kevin’s letter about the story of the 70th miracle of Lourdes which occurred in 2008 and was officially declared attributable to Our Lady of Lourdes on February 11, 2018.

Our Blessed Mother was conceived without sin, a fact we celebrate annually on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, December 8. 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 Saturday, December 8. 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.

Please send me your Annunciation intentions for our octave of Masses and request Votive Lights to burn at our Lady’s Shrine. The octave begins Monday, April 9, and we want to remember you and your prayer requests throughout the eight days. On the feast of the Annunciation, April 9, the Church celebrates Mary’s “yes” to God. The angel Gabriel appeared to her and said, “Behold you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name him Jesus” (Luke 1:31). We hope you will come, in person or in spirit, to our Lady’s Shrine in prayer during our Annunciation Octave of Masses, and let Mary’s ‘yes’ be your ‘yes’ too!

The Annunciation is usually celebrated on March 25. However, when March 25 falls during Holy Week, the feast is moved to the Monday after the second Sunday of Easter. Therefore, in 2018 the Solemnity of the Annunciation will be celebrated on April 9.
