Devotion to The Miraculous Medal

I grew up in a family significantly devoted to the Miraculous Medal. The Holy Mary: Mother of God in France, revealed the precious medal on November 29, 1830. I remember this devotion to be celebrated by my family annually every 10th day of November -- initially every 27th day of November in celebration of my father's actual birthday; however, it 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 to glorify Mary: Mother of Christ. They help us through prayers to worship 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 healing will happen. Recovery of our body, mind, and spirit. Holistic spiritual healing is granted through the promises of the Miraculous Medal. 

I am a living witness of the miracles of the religious medal of Mary. Our family may have experienced a lot of struggles and unending challenges, but we have remained strong and positive through the years. We have overcome obstacles and trials that would have broken us. However, prayer is a potent 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. Through the intercession of the Blessed Mary through his son Jesus Christ our God, we remain 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, which will continue for years to come. The Blessed Mary never fails to hear us when we ask for her intercession. We glorify her name and 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.
