Friends of the Rosary,

Today, the first Saturday after Ascension Thursday, is the Feast of Mary, Queen of Apostles, celebrated in some areas and by certain religious congregations, including the Pallotines, the Marianists, and the congregations founded by Bl. James Alberione (the Society of St. Paul, the Daughters of St. Paul, and others).

The feast day commemorates Mary joining the first apostles and disciples of the Lord in the Cenacle to pray for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the Church.

Mary initiated her mission as Queen of Apostles in the upper room. She gathered the apostles together, comforted them, and assisted them in prayer. They all were filled with the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost.

Devotion to Mary is a treasure. On the Feast of Mary, Queen of the Apostles, Catholics may attend special Masses, light candles, pray the rosary, and visit places associated with Mary, such as Lourdes and Fatima.

Come, Holy Spirit, come!

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!

To Jesus through Mary!
