Memorial

The Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church

On February 11, 2018, the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments inscribed a new obligatory Memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church, into the General Roman Calendar. This memorial is celebrated every year on the Monday after Pentecost (Monday, May 21, 2018).

 

A full Mass formulary – including Collect, Prayer over the Offerings, Preface, Prayer after Communion, and Entrance and Communion Antiphons – is already included within the Roman Missal. White vestments are worn.

 

From the Votive Masses: 10. Blessed Virgin Mary, B. Our Lady, Mother of the Church (p.1345 – Liturgical Press).

 

A set of proper (i.e., mandatory) readings has been assigned for this new memorial. Since the precise verses and acclamation are not found together in any one place in the Lectionary for Mass, the USCCB Secretariat of Divine Worship has prepared a PDF resource of the readings to facilitate their use.
