Mary, Queen of the Apostles


The image of Mary Queen of the Apostles in the ‘cenacle’ envisaged and depicted by St Vincent Pallotti, with several lay people around Mary along with the Apostles, speaks a lot for the importance of the role and mission of the laity in the Church. The ‘cenacle’ is the place where ordinary human beings are transformed into authentic apostles of Jesus, always under the power of the Holy Spirit and accompanied by Mary Queen of the Apostles. These apostles then go forth from the ‘cenacle’ to proclaim the Good News of Salvation to all people. Mary Queen of the Apostles is adopted as the guide and heavenly patroness of Jesus Youth Formation and Households. Henceforth, because of its special relevance to our movement, this beautiful image will be officially promoted for use during prayer and reflection.
