This year, on the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, the Vatican proclaimed a new obligatory memorial in honor of our Lady, known as the Memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church.

It will be celebrated every year on the Monday after Pentecost, the day after we joyfully celebrate the birth of Christ’s Church.

This new feast at the conclusion of Eastertide is a reminder of the eternal relationship of the mystery of salvation and the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Redeemer and Mother of the Redeemed.

This year the new memorial falls on Monday, May 21st. “Magnificat” has prepared a file with the relevant texts – click here to download them.

Our Lady, Mother of the Church, pray for us!

After Romain Lizé (Magnificat)
