Devotion to The Miraculous Medal

I grew up in a family that has a great devotion to the Miraculous Medal. The precious medal was revealed by the Holy Mary: Mother of God in France on November 29, 1830. I remember this devotion to be celebrated by my family annually every 10th day of November -- originally every 27th day of November in celebration of the real birthday of my father; however, was moved to the 10th of November in the early years of the devotion.

Our relatives mostly the elderly are among those who venerate and pray religiously while singing praises of hymn and thanksgiving and to glorify Mary: Mother of Christ. They help us through prayers to glorify Mary and Jesus and to pray for our intention. The Miraculous Medal of Mary never failed to hear our prayers through her intercession. It is through prayers that healings would happen. Healing of our body, mind, and spirit. Holistic spiritual healing granted through the promises of the Miraculous Medal. 

I am a living witness of the miracles of the sacred medal of Mary. Our family may have experienced a lot of struggles and unending challenges, but we have remained to be strong and positive through the years. We have overcome obstacles and trials that would have broken us. However, prayer is a truly powerful weapon to overcome defeat.

I also remember just before graduation when we were given a booklet of the Miraculous Medal by our teacher who is also a devotee. The prayers helped me overcome doubts and negativity and helped me to pass the board exam with positivity. It is the intercession of the Blessed Mary through his son Jesus Christ our God that we remain to be prayerful for graces and blessings in our life.

It's been 3 decades already that we are annually celebrating our devotion to the Miraculous Medal and that will continue for the years to come. The Blessed Mary never fails to hear us when we ask for her intercession. We glorify her name and we give her the highest veneration as the mother of Christ - - our Lord and our savior. Just like her message to all of us: "Oh Mary! conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee"

Blessed Mother Mary, pray for us. Amen.
