Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal

As today is actually Saxon's birthday ♥ (even though we will celebrate tomorrow with Vellvin for a joint birthday) and the fact I have to take Moran to Burnie for more Occupational Therapy Assessment and the boys have a summer job interview in which I need to drop them off to first (please pray for them) our celebration of this feast day will be extremely simple.
In fact all I think we will be able to manage ☺ will be a cake with the Miraculous Medal Design on the top and a colouring page. I think we will have to copy the image above and then make a colouring page ourselves as I cannot find one. ☺

We will also start the novena below, yes I know we should have done it before but I forgot so we will start today.
Here are some very interesting sites to look at information on The Miraculous Medal and Catherine Laboure




NOVENA OF THE MIRACULOUS MEDAL ~

O Immaculate Virgin Mary,
Mother of Our Lord Jesus and our Mother,
penetrated with the most lively confidence in your all-powerful and never-failing intercession, manifested so often through the Miraculous Medal,
we your loving and trustful children implore you to obtain for us the graces and favors we ask during this novena,
if they be beneficial to our immortal souls,
and the souls for whom we pray.
(Here form your petition)

You know, O Mary, how often our souls have been the sanctuaries of your Son who hates iniquity.
Obtain for us then a deep hatred of sin and that purity of heart which will attach us to God alone so that our every thought, word and deed may tend to His greater glory.
Obtain for us also a spirit of prayer and self-denial that we may recover by penance what we have lost by sin and at length attain to that blessed abode where you are the Queen of angels and of men.
Amen.

I pray once again your day has been one of loving service to our Lord.

Blessings,
