Join in the Immaculate Conception Octave of Masses beginning Thursday, December 8

Join fellow members of the Association of the Miraculous Medal in celebrating Our Blessed Mother’s Immaculate Conception. This is the solemn feast of God’s gracious gift to Mary in preserving her from the stain of original sin. 

Appearing to Catherine Labouré in 1830, Our Blessed Mother called upon all people to invoke her as “conceived without sin” — the very phrase emblazoned on the medal she instructed Catherine to create and promote.

On December 8, 1854, Blessed Pope Pius IX released a document defining the dogma of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In the document he states, “In the first instance of her conception, by a singular privilege and grace granted by God, in view of the merits of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the human race, was preserved exempt from all stain of original sin.”

Take a moment now to entrust your Immaculate Conception intentions to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. They will be placed near Mary’s Altar at the National Shrine in Perryville and remembered throughout AMM’s eight-day octave of Masses beginning December 8.

You are also invited to recite this prayer daily during the octave to enhance your observance of this feast. Requesting a Votive Light to burn is another special sign of your love for the Mother of God — God’s pure and holy Queen through whom every grace and favor flow to us!
