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”.

ACTS 13:13-25
Thought of the day
    May 16th, 2019 Thursday of the Fourth Week of Easter Lectionary: 282 Reading 1 ACTS 13:13-25 From Paphos, Paul and his companions set sail and arrived at Perga in Pamphylia. But John left them and returned to Jerusalem. They continued on from Perga and reached Antioch in Pisidia. On the sabbath they entered into the synagogue and took their seats. After the reading of the law and the prophets, the synagogue officials sent word to them, "My brothers, if one of you has a word of exhortation for the people, please speak." So Paul got up, motioned with his hand, and said, "Fellow children of Israel and you others who are God-fearing, listen. The God of this people Israel chose our ancestors and exalted the people during their sojourn in the land of Egypt. With uplifted arm he led them out, and for about forty years he put up with them in the desert. When he had destroyed seven nations in the land of Canaan, he gave them their land as an inheritance at the end of about four hundred and fifty years. After these things he provided judges up to Samuel the prophet. Then they asked for a king. God gave them Saul, son of Kish, a man from the tribe of Benjamin, for forty years. Then he removed him and raised up David as their king; of him he testified, I have found David, son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will carry out my every wish. From this man's descendants God, according to his promise, has brought to Israel a savior, Jesus. John heralded his coming by proclaiming a baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel; and as John was completing his course, he would say, 'What do you suppose that I am? I am not he. Behold, one is coming after me; I am not worthy to unfasten the sandals of his feet.'" Responsorial Psalm PS 89:2-3, 21-22, 25 AND 27 R.(2) For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord. or: R. Alleluia. The favors of the LORD I will sing forever; through all generations my mouth shall proclaim your faithfulness. For you have said, "My kindness is established forever"; in heaven you have confirmed your faithfulness. R. For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord. or: R. Alleluia. "I have found David, my servant; with my holy oil I have anointed him, That my hand may be always with him, and that my arm may make him strong." R. For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord. or: R. Alleluia. "My faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him, and through my name shall his horn be exalted. He shall say of me, 'You are my father, my God, the Rock, my savior.'" R. For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord. or: R. Alleluia. Alleluia SEE RV 1:5AB R. Alleluia, alleluia. Jesus Christ, you are the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, you have loved us and freed us from our sins by your Blood. R. Alleluia, alleluia Gospel JN 13:16-20 When Jesus had washed the disciples' feet, he said to them: "Amen, amen, I say to you, no slave is greater than his master nor any messenger greater than the one who sent him. If you understand this, blessed are you if you do it. I am not speaking of all of you. I know those whom I have chosen. But so that the Scripture might be fulfilled, The one who ate my food has raised his heel against me. From now on I am telling you before it happens, so that when it happens you may believe that I AM. Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever receives the one I send receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me."
