Queen of Apostles

 

 

We venerate Our Lady in a very special way under the title of  Queen of Apostles. Devotion to Mary as Queen of Apostles is one  of the oldest devotions in the Church. The celebration of this feast  is held each year, on the first Saturday after the feast of the  Ascension.

 " Mary is Queen of Apostles because she was chosen to be the Mother of Jesus Christ and to give Him to the world; she was  made the Apostles' Mother and our own by Our Savior on the  cross; she was with the Apostles while awaiting the descent of the  Holy Spirit, obtaining for them the abundance of supernatural  graces they received on Pentecost."

 It is a source of great hope and joy to our community that the " Queen of Apostles " lived out her life on earth as a wife and  mother; no different externally, from the other wives and mothers  in her village. She lived an ordinary life with extraordinary love  and zeal for the glory of God. We, the members of the community,  strive to imitate Mary's love and zeal for God as we continue to  fulfill our duties in our homes and communities.

“For all states of the laity the perfect example of spiritual and apostolic life is the most Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of Apostles, who while leading the life common to all here on earth, one filled with family concerns and labours, was always intimately united with her Son and in an entirely unique way co-operated in the work of the Saviour . . . All should devoutly venerate her and commend their life and apostolate to her maternal care”.

Daily Readings

2 COR 3:4-11
Thought of the day
    June 12th, 2019 Wednesday of the Tenth Week in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 361 Reading 1 2 COR 3:4-11 Brothers and sisters: Such confidence we have through Christ toward God. Not that of ourselves we are qualified to take credit for anything as coming from us; rather, our qualification comes from God, who has indeed qualified us as ministers of a new covenant, not of letter but of spirit; for the letter brings death, but the Spirit gives life. Now if the ministry of death, carved in letters on stone, was so glorious that the children of Israel could not look intently at the face of Moses because of its glory that was going to fade, how much more will the ministry of the Spirit be glorious? For if the ministry of condemnation was glorious, the ministry of righteousness will abound much more in glory. Indeed, what was endowed with glory has come to have no glory in this respect because of the glory that surpasses it. For if what was going to fade was glorious, how much more will what endures be glorious. Responsorial Psalm PS 99:5, 6, 7, 8, 9 R.(see 9c) Holy is the Lord our God. Extol the LORD, our God, and worship at his footstool; holy is he! R. Holy is the Lord our God. Moses and Aaron were among his priests, and Samuel, among those who called upon his name; they called upon the LORD, and he answered them. R. Holy is the Lord our God. From the pillar of cloud he spoke to them; they heard his decrees and the law he gave them. R. Holy is the Lord our God. O LORD, our God, you answered them; a forgiving God you were to them, though requiting their misdeeds. R. Holy is the Lord our God. Extol the LORD, our God, and worship at his holy mountain; for holy is the LORD, our God. R. Holy is the Lord our God. Alleluia PS 25:4B, 5A R. Alleluia, alleluia. Teach me your paths, my God, and guide me in your truth. R. Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel MT 5:17-19 Jesus said to his disciples: "Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do so will be called least in the Kingdom of heaven. But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments will be called greatest in the Kingdom of heaven."
