Dear Friend in Christ,

“Behold thy Mother,”...

Our Lord Jesus Christ spoke these words as He suffered on the cross because He knew we would need a mother like her. He knew that through her, we would come to Him. He knew that her graces were ours for the asking. And He wanted us to experience her love.
Our Lord also showed us that to be a perfect disciple of His, we were to imitate the love and obedience of Jesus to his Mother.

My friend, I invite you to join us in spirit to honor Mary at our May Procession at Mary’s Miraculous Medal Shrine by rfilling out the Rose for Mary with your prayer intentions for her tender assistance above.

This is a beautiful opportunity to show your devotion to the Blessed Mother and ask for her intercession.

As always, no gift is ever required of you. But with the cost of everything rising and pilgrimages to the Shrine of the Miraculous Medal still not up to pre-pandemic levels, we urgently need your help to maintain and operate the Shrine and support the Vincentian priests and brothers in their service to the poor.

So please, if you can give a special gift of $25, $50, $100, or more, we would be so very grateful. When you donate to Mary’s Shrine today, you will make an incredible difference for those who are hurting, those without hope, the isolated, the sick, and those who are struggling with the Faith.

Your donation today will help us:

My May Procession Gift

YES, Father Lyons, I want to continue helping to spread devotion to Mary and her Miraculous Medal so others may receive her graces — bringing help, hope, and healing to a hurting world. I’m sending my tax-deductible donation today:

You will be redirected to our secure online donation processing page to complete your donation.

  • Spread devotion to Mary Immaculate and her Miraculous Medal.
  • Serve the poor in our communities by supporting the ministries of the Vincentians of the Eastern Province — which help to provide food, housing, and our faith to the poor.
  • Support critical programs for at-risk youth.
  • Help us continue our virtual events and outreach for the sick and others who cannot visit the Shrine in person, including our Weekly Livestream of the Monday Novena and Masses.

Spreading devotion to Mary, turning to her in trust, and asking for her help brings her joy. And so too will your Rose for Mary. 

Please accept this special invitation to join other members of our Miraculous Medal family and me in laying our Roses at Mary’s feet. 

Remember, Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal said: “Come to the foot of this altar. Here, graces will be spread over all who ask for them with confidence and fervor.”

Mary, our Mother, always hears our prayers ...

And, there is no problem or worry that the Blessed Mother and God cannot rectify.

Whether it’s freedom from addiction, the cure for an illness, help for a financial problem, or the pain of broken family, Mary is there to intercede on our behalf.

Whatever your needs, for yourself or your loved ones, our Blessed Mother desires to give you her graces and her help.

Do you need the Blessed Mother’s graces at this time? Are you struggling in some way? Do you need the strength that only opening your heart to Mary can give?

Do you have a particular prayer intention that you want to bring to her?

There’s nothing too big for Mary to handle. We only need to ask and have faith that she will answer.

Please, don’t wait another day to mail your Rose and your prayer intentions to Mary’s Miraculous Medal Shrine.

As a member of our Miraculous Miracle Family, I want you to experience Mary’s graces and help ...

... And I pray that I will see your Rose at the foot of Mary’s altar in May.

Please accept this invitation and let Mary bring us together, as she does in many beautiful and memorable ways, from May altars and crowning to Marian hymns and processions.

Let our simple acts of devotion to Mary honor her as our Mother and Queen. And also let these acts of devotion bring us closer to Our Lady and her Son.

Mary cares for us without fail. Her love knows no bounds. The graces she is waiting to bestow are boundless.

So please, don’t ever hesitate to ask for Mary’s help. She is always waiting for you with open arms ... waiting to bestow her rays of graces. 

Let me remind you that we are waiting to receive your Rose and your prayer intentions. In addition, we are praying for you to make a generous donation.

If friends like you cannot help us, the shortfall in funding that we are now experiencing could cause us to have to make cutbacks that will impact our mission.

Of course, we are praying, and looking for the ways to minimize the impact of this funding crisis.

We are looking for less painful ways to cut costs. And we are hoping and praying that you and others like you will help us in time. Without your help, we may have to make deeper cuts than anticipated.

My friend, please take a moment to send your prayer intentions . And if God has blessed you with the ability to do so, please also send your most generous gift.

Thank you for your commitment and support — now, when it’s needed most.

Gratefully yours in Mary Immaculate,

Rev. Timothy V. Lyons, C.M.
