The Miraculous Medal’s highest purpose, and Mary’s primary mission, are to help each of us reach heaven. The Association’s work takes on eternal significance as we strive to draw more people to Jesus through our Lady. Members who make monthly gifts to fulfill this mission are greatly appreciated. Please consider adding your name to the growing family of Twelve Stars of Mary members! Your commitment to the Monthly Giving Club provides you with a convenient way to support AMM year-round while it helps us lower fundraising and processing costs. That allows your gift to go even farther. Read Fr. Kevin’s letter or call us at 1-800-264-MARY (6279) to learn more.

“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!

We hope you’ll enjoy the inspiring Advent and Christmas Reflections in this issue of the Bulletin newsletter, as well as the conclusion of the Marian Meditation statue stories. (Especially the two titles cherished by so many AMM members: Our Lady of Guadalupe and Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.) We’re eager to share with you an overview of our financial accountability report — good news made possible by thousands of AMM members who remain devoted to our ministry. See the new Votive Light Card for 2021 and order soon. Testimonials from our members are always a favorite among readers and can also be found in this issue.. 

This time of year also brings with it a humble invitation to consider providing for the future of Mary’s Association. Please prayerfully consider the opportunities shared in this issue of Rays of Light. We are deeply grateful for your commitment to our Lady’s Association.

From the moment she was conceived, our Lady was granted the divine grace of being preserved from the stain of original sin. Mary’s purity was necessary as she was to become the living Temple of the Son of God. Appearing to Saint Catherine Labouré in 1830, our Blessed Mother called upon all people to invoke her as “conceived without sin.” You are invited to join us in a prayerful, eight-day celebration--the December 8 Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. First, take a moment to entrust your intentions to our Lady. They will be placed near Mary’s Shrine Altar and remembered throughout the Octave of Masses beginning December 8. Then, recite this prayer daily from December 8-15. You may also wish to request a Votive Light to burn as one more sign of your love for Mary — God’s pure and holy Queen through whom every grace and favor flows to us!

Good stories are always in season, and you’ll find them aplenty in this issue of the Fall Bulletin Newsletter! Read about saints and angels … gifts and a grotto … voices from the past and a love story from the present … statues and cities, and much more. There’s an inspiring testimonial from a member in California who asked for Mary’s intercession during the COVID-19 outbreak. And don’t miss the call to pray the Rosary on election day! It’s all right here. Also, if you’re shopping for religious gifts for the coming Christmas season, check out the new Fall Gift Brochure.

Here at our Lady’s Shrine our Rosary Octave of Prayer will begin on Wednesday, October 7. AMM staff will pray the Rosary daily through next Wednesday, October 14. We hope you, too, will pray the rosary each of the eight days of this octave of prayer. Send us your intentions and the names of your loved ones to be remembered during the eight days of prayer. You may also burn Votive Lights for your special intentions. Pope Francis has urged all Catholics to pray the Rosary daily to unite us as one spiritual family and to help the Church in its time of trial. Saint Pope John Paul II taught that through this ancient prayer, we receive abundant grace, “as though from the very hands of the Mother of the Redeemer.”

Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal has touched the lives of hundreds of millions who have worn her medal and trust in her intercession. We continue Mary’s mission of hope by bringing people to Jesus through Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. In honor of our Lady, you are invited to send your petitions for remembrance in our annual Miraculous Medal Novena of Masses, November 18-26. You can also request Votive Lights to burn for your intentions. Read Fr. Kevin’s letter about how Mary is waiting to hear from you. As a reminder to ask our Lady for God’s graces, request your 15-month Miraculous Medal Planner for 2021-2022. As you write your own scheduled dates and events, it will remind you that Mary brings Jesus to you every day of your life!

All Souls Remembrance
May we join you in praying for the souls of your departed loved ones? 

Beginning with the November 2 observance of All Souls Day and throughout the month, we would like to offer prayers of intercession for your deceased relatives and friends. Simply send the names of your departed loved ones. These names will be placed near Mary’s Altar at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal here in Perryville. (If you include the date of your loved one’s passing, we will also remember them during that month.) You may also burn a Votive Light as one more sign of your enduring love for your departed loved ones. 

Fr. Kevin’s letter shares much more about the beautiful tradition of All Souls Day!
