So to honour her, here is a little selection from Chapter 1 of Blessed James Alberione's book entitled 'Mary, Queen of Apostles', followed by the 2nd of 5 prayers he composed as a chaplet seeking her intercession under this title of Queen of the Apostles.
Excerpt from his book
'To exclude Mary from the apostolate (or new evangelization) would be to ignore one of the most essential parts of God's redemptive plan. It would be depriving ourselves of Mary's all-powerful intercession…. The apostle, the preacher, the missionary, the confessor, and the man of action run the grave risk of constructing on sand if their activity is not supported by an intense devotion to Mary and confidence in her. Every apostolate is an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on individuals and on the world. Because of Mary's response to the angel, the Holy Spirit descended upon her and worked the greatest prodigy: the Incarnation and the sanctification of Christ. From that moment on, Mary acquired a kind of jurisdiction over every temporal outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Thus, no one receives grace except through Mary. On Pentecost the Holy Spirit descended after he was called upon by Mary who was leading the apostles in prayer."
Prayer of Bl James Alberione
'O Mary, Queen of all the angels, full of grace, conceived without sin, blessed among creatures, living tabernacle of God, remember that painful and solemn moment in which the dying Jesus from the Cross gave you John as your son, and in him all men and especially all the apostles. What tender love flooded your heart at that moment for souls consecrated to the apostolate, to the following of the Cross, to the love of Jesus. For your indescribable sufferings and those of your divine Son, for your motherly heart, O Mary, increase the glorious ranks of apostles, missionaries, priests and virgins. May these souls be resplendent for sanctity of life, integrity of morals, solid piety, the deepest humility, the most firm faith, the most ardent charity. May they all be holy, purifying salt of the earth and light of the world.
Queen of the Apostles, pray for us.'
Blessed James Alberione, pray for us
All the holy Apostles and disciples who gathered with Mary in prayer before the first outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, pray for us.
