On October 28, 2018 the Marian Sisters together with Fr. Anatolii Tovkan, CM, held a presentation on the Miraculous Medal in the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in the town of Dovbysh, Zhytomyr region.
Pallottine Fathers gave their warm consent to the proposition of making a presentation on the Miraculous Medal in their parish. During sermons at two Holy Masses, the Sisters had a chance to present the Medal, talk about its history and origins, and about why it was so important to receive the medal and to wear it piously. Moreover, they also reported on the Association of the Miraculous Medal in Ukraine.
We are grateful for everyone’s openness and interest in Association’s activity. To add more, we were impressed with people’s special devotion to the Virgin Mary. The spirituality of the parish was also felt during the adoration that followed after the Holy Mass. Thereafter, we had a chance to pray the Holy Rosary together with all parishioners.
As the Holy Masses ended, all those willing could receive free medals for themselves, their relatives and neighbors. An interesting thing was the fact that those were children who asked for the biggest amount of medals for their old and ill grannies, for their parents and for their school friends.
All in all, almost 2,000 medals were distributed on that day, and we kept some hundreds of medals for those who had not managed to receive theirs yet. Finally, 43 new members joined the Association.
“O Mary! conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee!”
