Dear Friend in Christ,

Because you are a cherished friend of Mary’s Miraculous Medal Family, I want to offer you three very special Christmas Spiritual Benefit Cards .

May I also ask you to please remember the sick, the elderly, the poor, and the disabled when you reply to me today? We Vincentians provide urgently-needed assistance to so many individuals and families in need especially during the Christmas season. But to do this, we need your help.


That is why I pray you will include a generous Christmas offering to help our suffering brothers and sisters — and spread devotion to our Blessed Mother.


The gift you give will be a blessing to the neediest among us. And your Christmas gift of 365 days of prayer will make a difference in the lives of your friends and loved ones.


As you and I prepare to celebrate the virgin birth of our Lord and Savior, may God bless you and the loved ones you have generously decided to gift with 365 days of prayer during Holy Mass at Mary’s Shrine. I look forward to serving you and be assured of my blessings at Christmas and always.

Fr. John A. Kettelberger, CM
Spiritual Director, Central Association of the Miraculous Medal

P.S. In the grotto at the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, there is a star that marks the place where the baby Jesus was born. My dear friend, if you can make a Christmas offering of $100 or more, I would like to send you a special Olive Wood Christmas Angel with a third-class relic that was touched to the birthplace of Jesus!

YES, Fr. John, I want to give my loved ones the gift of 365 days of prayer for Christmas. Please remember my loved ones in prayer every day during Mass at Mary’s Shrine from this Christmas until next. With my Christmas offering of $100 or more, please send me this very special Olive Wood Christmas Angel with relic.
