FACES OF DEVOTION : A Gift from Our Lady
Rosa and her husband wanted nothing more in life than to conceive a child. Fruitlessly, they tried and were beginning to lose hope. Then, they came to The Miraculous Medal Shrine and prayed to Our Lady. What happened next is nothing short of a miracle.

In the Old Testament, sack cloths and ashes were signs of mourning and repentance. And since the earliest years of the Church, these signs were also used during the penitential season of Lent.  

This year, Lent begins on February 26. Submit your Lenten prayer intentions to the Miraculous Medal Shrine now, and they will remain at Mary’s Altar throughout this
holy season.
The Miraculous Medal Shrine’s Gift Shop offers a variety of religious products, cards, books and mementos.
Faith not only grounds us and gives meaning to our lives, it also serves as a support during our sufferings and difficult moments. In the wake of the death of NBA All-Star Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna , people worldwide are seeking answers to process and understand this tragedy. Bryant frequently ascribed his Catholic faith for supporting him during his trials and strengthening him personally and professionally. How has your Catholic faith and devotion to Mary played a pivotal role in your times of loss or need?
