July 14 St. Francis Solano

In one of her apparitions to St. Catherine Labouré, our Lady said to the young sister—frightened by the greatness and the difficulty of the mission which had been entrusted to her—“It is here at the foot of the tabernacle that you must seek the strength and consolation!” The heavenly Mother addresses the same words to each of you. With the Eucharist, near the tabernacle, may you be holy and fearless sisters, today and for the rest of you lives!

-St. John Paul II

 

Consecration to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal

O Virgin Mother of God, Mary Immaculate, we dedicate and consecrate ourselves to you under the title of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. May this medal be for each one of us a sure sign of your affection for us and a constant reminder of our duties toward you. Ever while wearing it, may we be blessed by your loving protection and preserved in the grace of your Son.

O most powerful Virgin, Mother of our Savior, keep us close to you every moment of our lives. Obtain for us, your children, the grace of a happy death; so that, in union with you, we may enjoy the bliss of heaven forever.

Amen.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to you. (3 times)
