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.

Do you have family members and friends who are in great need of healing?

Share your personal petitions for remembrance throughout AMM’s Our Lady of Lourdes Octave of Masses. We will place your requests near Mary’s National Shrine Altar. From February 11-18.  Pray this daily prayer  and request a Votive Light  to symbolize your presence here at the Shrine. Mary asks us to turn to her with faith and in confident trust. Through her powerful intercession, she will obtain all that we need.  Father Kevin writes about Saint Bernadette’s apparitions and the miraculous healing in Lourdes, France, of a young boy cured of complete blindness and paralysis in 1938.

“O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee. Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.”

Imagine speaking to our Blessed Mother as Saint Catherine Labouré did 190 years ago on July 18,1830. On that date, Mary told Catherine that God wished to charge her with a mission. As we know, that mission was to promote and distribute the Medal of the Immaculate Conception—the Miraculous Medal. Mary said, “….graces will be shed on all, great and little, who ask for them.”  Mary invites each of us to rest our burdens and cares in her hands.  All we need to do is pray with confidence, asking for her intercession. She will listen and ask God to fill us with his grace. Send your prayer petitions and burn a Votive Light at our Lady’s Altar in time for the anniversary of our Lady’s first apparition to Saint Catherine on July 18. We will place your petitions there for remembrance in the daily Masses and prayers. Please wear and share the Miraculous Medal, remembering to frequently pray its inscription, “O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.”

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.
