Providing Hope during PandemicJamie Trueblood
On Wednesday, March 11, Pope Francis offered a prayer for the world to find refuge in Mary, Our Lady, Health of the Sick, during the COVID-19 pandemic. Historically, the Miraculous Medal has been a source of comfort, peace, and healing in times of health emergencies and the Central Association of the Miraculous Medal (CAMM) continues its mission of spreading this devotion for those seeking Our Lady’s intercession.
Heeding Pope Francis’s call to offer prayers to the Blessed Mother for protection, CAMM, through its mission to spread devotion to the Blessed Mother though The Miraculous Medal Shrine, will offer multiple opportunities to engage in virtual prayer to Mary for the duration of the pandemic. These include:
Livestream of weekly Monday Perpetual Novena from The Miraculous Medal Shrine: Promoting the message of the Miraculous Medal and offering a sanctuary of hope and peace, CAMM will livestream its weekly Perpetual Novena, offering the opportunity to join in prayer remotely with the faithful around the world. Weekly livestreams will include a special intention for those affected by COVID-19 until the virus is contained. The Monday 9:00 a.m. Mass and Novena are livestreamed via Facebook.
Daily video prayers on social media: Shrine Director Fr. Michael Carroll, CM, will offer a daily video prayer on social media. Visit MiraculousMedal.org/hope or Facebook to watch.
Additional programs, prayers and details of our virtual communities will be updated regularly on our website at www.MiraculousMedal.org/hope.
