Feast Day

Parish Feast Day, August 14, 2022

Let us Pray Together the Miraculous Medal Novena

Perpetual Novena - The Miraculous Medal Shrine

One of my most favorite prayers is The Memorare, found in the Miraculous Medal Novena. In it, we pray to the Blessed Mother; “Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.”

What a wondrous promise to those who unite themselves to Mary in service of her Son and Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Of all the traditions associated with our Parish Feast Day celebration, I believe that the praying of the Miraculous Medal Novena nine days prior to the Feast Day is the most consequential. St. Maximilian Kolbe said of the Miraculous Medal: “We wear Mary’s Miraculous Medal. We human beings are not only spirit, but also body. Our interior life, our ideal and mentality must be perceptible from outside, must be expressed in our external life. Therefore outward signs are necessary in order to bring the interior disposition to light. The Savior willed to grant His graces to people precisely through such “sacred signs”, namely the Sacraments. In a similar manner we make an outward profession of our interior Total Consecration to Mary Immaculate through the use of the Miraculous Medal.”

I invite and encourage you to begin praying this nine day leading up to and through our Feast day.

May this Novena be an opportunity to give expression of our interior devotion to Jesus and may we lift ourselves, our parish and those we love into the arms of Mary’s Son, Jesus.
