Dear Sisters and Brothers in St. Vincent:
May the grace and peace of Our Lord Jesus Christ be with us forever!
As the Church rejoices at the start of this “Year of Faith”, I am very pleased to write to you in this month of November as we celebrate the feast of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.
This is a time for us to pause and give thanks to the Lord for all the graces we have received through the intercession of Our Blessed Mother.
In light of the “Year of Faith” proclaimed by Our Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI, it is noteworthy that among the various proposals suggested during the recent Synod of Bishops on New Evangelization for Transmission of the Faith was one calling for promotion of pilgrimages to different Marian shrines throughout the world. In light of this, I would especially encourage our various shrines throughout the world dedicated to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal to
promote pilgrimages throughout this Year of Faith. Hopefully, the local Associations of the Miraculous Medal can be of great assistance in this undertaking.
