The Association of the Miraculous Medal made a presentation on the Miraculous Medal on March 3, 2019 in the Parish of St. Nicholas of Myra in Kamianets-Podilskyi, Khmelnytskyi region, and in the Parish of St. Joseph the Worker located in the village of Kolybaivka and visited by Pauline Fathers for performing their ministry.
Pauline Fathers greeted warmly the suggestion of making a presentation on the Miraculous Medal in their parish. During the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, we said the Rosary prayer together with parishioners. After the Holy Masses, we used our chance to tell people the story of Virgin Mary’s apparition to a nun – St. Catherine Labouré as well as to speak to them about the Association of the Miraculous Medal that had been functioning in Ukraine since 2008.
Although the parishioners had been aware of the Miraculous Medal and many of them had had their personal Medals, thus already being members of the Association of the Miraculous Medal, they were open to hear something new from the apparition story.
An interesting thing was that parish also had a community specially devoted to Virgin Mary – the Legion of Mary. They visited the seek and distributed the Miraculous Medals, too.
All in all, we distributed over 700 Medals. To add more, 22 new members joined the Association. May the Blessed Virgin Mary intercede for all of us!
