Miraculous Medal Appeal

June 20, 2018

Dear Friends of Mary’s Shrine,

Here at Mary's Shrine, Monday evening prayers have always seemed blessed by the living presence of God's holy mother. It is a time when friends old and new come together, called by Mary and are united by the extraordinary promises of her Miraculous Medal.

Together, we call upon Jesus and Mary, asking for their merciful intercessions as our troubled world cries out seeking new pathways to peace.

Unlike the many marvelous devotions given voice to by humankind's love for Mary, the Miraculous Medal is her gift to us . . . a gift first offered when she appeared to the young Catherine Laboure in 1830, promising “great graces” for all who would open their hearts to embrace her and her Divine Son, Jesus.

How wonderful then to have you here with us for the Perpetual Novena to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal . . . or “with us” each Monday evening through your special petitions, which will have a place at the altar for every Perpetual Novena Mass celebrated each Monday these next twelve months.

I invite you to take the few minutes needed to share with us your petitions for family, friends and all who are joined together through their love of Blessed Mary.

For those who give an offering of $35 or more, I will be pleased to send you a plaque portraying the image of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, crafted in Italy on a background of wood. Whether placed on a shelf or mounted high on your wall, this small enameled portrait creates an altar of praise that beautifully captures the essence of Our Lady's promise.

And know that you will have a place in our prayers and in our hearts, throughout the next year and beyond. Thank you for allowing us to join you in prayer through this Perpetual Novena.

In the love of Jesus, Mary and Joseph,

The Very Reverend Paul J. Henry
Basilica Rector
