In 2018 Pope Francis added a new Marian feast to the Liturgical calendar: Mary, Mother of the Church, celebrated on the Monday following Pentecost. The collect (opening prayer) of the Mass focuses on that moment beneath the Cross when Mary received us all as her children.
In his forthcoming book, Mary, Mother of Apostles: How to Live Marian Devotion to Proclaim Christ, Father Giuseppe Forlai offers a beautiful meditation on just this "entrustment" of the Church to Mary.
Look for Mary, Mother of Apostles in August, 2018, from Pauline Books and Media, Boston!
