Mary, Mother of the Church

Mary on Pentecost with the apostles

Pope Francis has given us the new feast of Mary, Mother of the Church, celebrated on the Monday after Pentecost. In this meditation we pray about the background of the feast, considering:

  • Passages of Scripture on Mary, Mother of the Church
  • Texts of Fathers of the Church and Popes on this teaching
  • Proclamation of the truth by Pope St Paul VI in 1964
  • The image of Mary, Mother of the Church, in St Peter’s Square
  • Prayer entrusting all the faithful to Our Lady
