FACES OF DEVOTION :  Let Yourself Be Loved
Our Blessed Mother is always working for the glory of God. In the past few years, she's been touching the hearts and lives of people we rarely think about. And she's here for you, too. You don't need social distancing or a mask with her, and she's available any time of the day or night. Come, let yourself be loved.
Mary's CROWN & Your Petitions
In her time of concern, Filomena Angelone knew she could count on our Blessed Mother. You can, too. Send us your petitions to place at Mary's feet.
by Fr. Al Pehrsson, CM, a resident of St. Catherine’s Infirmary, Philadelphia

Since its very beginnings, the Church has honored Mary as our mother. In the 13th century, King Alfonso X (the King of Castile, León, and Galicia in Spain) wrote about honoring Mary with special devotions during May. The Miraculous Medal Shrine, too, has sung her praises and promoted devotion to her since the first Vincentians arrived in Philadelphia more than 170 years ago.

You can honor Mary during May by putting a statue or picture of her in a special place in your home, and praying a Rosary or the Miraculous Medal Novena prayers to her every day.
In these difficult days, even from your home, you can bring help, hope, and healing to a hurting world. And, at the same time, you can have your intentions at Mary's statue for the entire month of May. While we won't be able to have a May Procession due to COVID-19, our Vincentians will place your intentions at Mary’s feet, where they will remain for the month. They'll also be praying for you and your intentions. It's a win-win situation.
And to all of you who have mailed us your roses (or will mail them), they will also be placed at Mary's feet.
The Miraculous Medal Shrine’s Gift Shop offers a variety of religious products, cards, books, and mementos.
Many of us can't be with our mothers some have passed on, some live across the country, some are in assisted living homes, where we can't visit them. So amidst this pandemic, we still want to honor our natural mothers and our Blessed Mother. We just might need to get a little creative. Tell us how you are going to honor your mom this Mother's Day. 

And if you'd like to share your idea with others, send us a picture of what you're going to do, and we'll post it on social media.
