Mary Queen of Apostles

By Sr. Julitta Gołębiowska, SAC

Priests, religious and laymen have in Mary, after Jesus Christ, the most perfect model of true catholic zeal and perfect love. She laboured so much for the greater glory of God and the salvation of men that, although she lacked the priestly dignity, she also surpassed the Apostles in merit. This is the reason why the Church aptly greets her as “Queen of the Apostles”. She deserved this title because she cooperated in the propagation of the holy Faith far above the Apostles. (V. Pallotti, OOCC, I, p. 7)

"Our diverse talents and abilities, our differences in culture, nationality and age are assets for the richness of the community. Although we may be engaged in a variety of ministries, we all share the common call to apostolic discipleship in a community of the Catholic Apostolate of St. Vincent Pallotti."(OWL, 91)

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
