“The Rosary lays before our eyes the beauty
of a simple contemplative prayer
that is accessible to everyone, great and small.” - Pope Francis

 

Mary, mother of evangelization

'With the Holy Spirit, Mary is always present in the midst of the people. She joined the disciples in praying for the coming of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:14) and thus made possible the missionary outburst which took place at Pentecost. She is the Mother of the Church which evangelizes, and without her we could never truly understand the spirit of the new evangelization.' - Evangelii Gaudium (284)

Star of the new Evangelization

'We ask the Mother of the living Gospel to intercede that this invitation to a new phase of evangelization will be accepted by the entire ecclesial community. Mary is the woman of faith, who lives and advances in faith, and “her exceptional pilgrimage of faith represents a constant point of reference for the Church”. Mary let herself be guided by the Holy Spirit on a journey of faith towards a destiny of service and fruitfulness. Today we look to her and ask her to help us proclaim the message of salvation to all and to enable new disciples to become evangelizers in turn.' - Evangelii Gaudium (287)

 

"Mother of the living Gospel,
wellspring of happiness for God’s little ones,
pray for us." (EG 288)
