We hope to see you at the Association’s annual tradition on Sunday, May 1, at 1:00 p.m., CT, here in Perryville, Missouri. Please join us in person or in spirit as we honor Our Blessed Mother. 

Making an offering is another way you can play an important part in the spiritual works of the Association of the Miraculous Medal. Gifts help spread devotion to Our Blessed Mother, who has promised to pour out graces and favors on all who appeal to her with confidence. Offerings also enable AMM to send free, blessed Miraculous Medals to anyone who asks.

Thank you for your faithfulness and generosity as we honor Mary throughout the month of May.

February 11 is the memorial feast of Our Lady of Lourdes and is also World Day of Prayer for the Sick as proclaimed by Saint John Paul II. Which of your family members and friends 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. You are invited to pray this prayer daily and request a Votive Light to symbolize your presence here at the Shrine. May each of us place our trust in the Immaculate Conception that she may obtain for us all that we need. Fr. Kevin writes in his Lourdes letter about one of the most recently approved miracles associated with Saint Bernadette’s 1858 apparitions of Our Lady — a religious sister who went to Lourdes to ask healing for others, but ended up receiving her own miraculous cure!

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

The Association of the Miraculous Medal devotes itself to accompanying members along their daily spiritual journey. We also spread devotion to Mary with people around the world by sharing the Miraculous Medal she entrusted to Saint Catherine Labouré 191 years ago. Throughout 2022, we hope you will allow us to pray for your special intentions. You may always burn a Votive Light of praise and gratitude, or in an appeal for ongoing needs in your life. Request free Miraculous Medals on cards of explantion at any time. Our Lady keeps you in her heart, every moment of every day. Placing yourself in hers will bring you nearer to God. Know that you remain in our daily prayers. We look forward to hearing from you. For more information, read Father Kevin’s letter.

Join AMM's Rosary Octave
The Association’s annual Rosary Octave of Prayer will begin Thursday, October 7, the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary (originally known as “Our Lady of Victory”). Pope Leo XIII had a deep devotion to Our Blessed Mother, this feast, and its importance. “This devotion to the Queen of Heaven has never shone forth with such brilliancy as when the Church has seemed to be endangered by heresy … an intolerable moral corruption, or by the attacks of powerful enemies,” he wrote. We do well to entrust to Mary the urgent temporal and spiritual needs of our families and in our world. Please be among AMM members joining us from home to pray one Rosary daily for eight days. You are also encouraged to send your intentions to be remembered during the octave at Our Lady’s Shrine. The feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is a wonderful opportunity to burn Votive Lights for your needs, or simply as a gesture of praise and gratitude for blessings and favors Our Lady has already bestowed upon you and your loved ones. God has promised the triumph of life over death and good over evil. We implore Mary, through the most holy Rosary, to lead us to the ultimate victory we seek!

Miraculous Medal Novena
Our Lady awaits you to turn to her in confidence. She is your sign of hope, your help in adversity, and your most loving Mother at every moment. You can draw closer to her and her Son during a novena of Masses being held November 18-26 here at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. Take part in spirit by returning your personal prayer intentions to be placed near Mary’s Shrine Altar throughout the nine days and on November 27, the feast of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. You may also burn Votive Lights for your intentions. 

The Miraculous Medal remains a global force for accomplishing God’s will through the devotion of so many faithful wearers and sharers! From the moment the first “Medals of the Immaculate Conception” were delivered in 1832 until our own day, countless people have reported grace-filled blessings received through Mary’s intercession associated with the medal, and even favors they call “miraculous.”  

Fr. Kevin’s full letter shares more, including inspiring testimonials of several AMM members.

When we lose a family member or close friend, reaching out with kindness and compassion can be of great comfort. You can share the consoling gift of prayer by requesting this beautiful Memorial Remembrance Card to send to the bereaved. It offers the deceased loved one a remembrance in the daily Mass and prayers at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal for one year.

You may also burn a Votive Light at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal for your departed loved ones. 

Fr. Kevin’s letter shares more about the Memorial Remembrance Card, as well as the story of one member’s inspiring faith at the moment of his dear wife’s passing.

“Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” (1 Corinthians 15:55)

We will celebrate Our Blessed Mother’s birthday beginning Wednesday, September 8, here at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. There’s no better occasion to entrust to Mary all the intentions you hold close to your heart. Maybe it’s a special intention for yourself or a family member, prayers for a deceased relative, a plea for someone’s return to faith, or simply a prayer of gratitude for God’s goodness and Mary’s love in your life. Whatever it is, share your intentions here. We will lift them up to Our Lady throughout the eight days of our octave of prayer. You may also wish to burn a Votive Light in Mary’s honor. Its rays will add to the light and joy of our celebration! Read Fr. Kevin’s letter to learn more about the birthday candle members are joining together to create.

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.
