Prayer to Mary, Queen of Apostles

O Mary, you who gave birth to the Word made flesh, be present among us: assist, inspire and comfort the ministers of the Word.

O Mary, you who are Queen of the Apostles, intervene with your protection that the light of the Gospel may reach all peoples.

O Mary, Mother of Jesus, Way, Truth and Life, intercede for us, so that heaven may be filled with those who sing the hymn of glory to the most
Holy Trinity.

--Blessed James Alberione

Today's feast in honor of the Queen of the Apostles was established on the first Saturday after the Ascension by the Sacred Congregation of Rites. Mary initiated her mission as Queen of Apostles in the Cenacle. She gathered the Apostles together, comforted them, and assisted them in prayer. Together with them she hoped, desired, and prayed; with them her petitions were heeded and she received the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost.
