Did you know? Today is a new feast day for Mary, under the title Mother of the Church, instituted by Pope Francis as a Memorial. This new feast in the Roman calendar will take place every year on the Monday following Pentecost. The devotion to Mary, Mother of the Church, reflected in the Mariology of Church Tradition and in the writings of the Church Fathers, used to be celebrated as a Votive Mass since Pope Paul VI inserted into the calendar during the Holy Year of Reconciliation in 1975.
