This free holy card features an image of Mary, Mother of Our Church (Mater Ecclesiae), the memorare, and the date and title commemorating the consecration of the United States and Canada to Our Lady's care.

In 1980, a group of university students were in an audience with the St. Pope John Paul II and pointed out that among all the holy images in the square, there were none of Our Lady. Seeing that the square was not complete without her, work was already underway to correct this. The project took on the additional weight of gratitude, after the pope was shot in 1981; he credited the Holy Mother with saving his life. Thus, he chose to depict her as the Mother of the Church because of her closeness to her children, indeed the whole church, in times of adversity. By winter of the same year, the mosaic was completed, in place of where a window once stood. Underneath the Madonna and child is the coat of arms of Pope St. John Paul II and his motto “Totus Tuus” (totally thine). The image is based on Our Lady of the Column, Mother of the Church, which stands above a side altar inside St. Peter’s Basilica.

It reads:

"Renewal of Consecration of
the United States and Canada to
the Care of Our Blessed Mother
May 1st, 2020
 
Remember, O most gracious Virgin
Mary, that never was it known that
anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help, or sought thine
intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, we fly unto
thee, O virgin of virgins, our mother;
to thee do we come, before thee we
stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not our petitions, but in thy
mercy hear and answer us.
Amen."

    Thank you to the countries of Canada and USA for declaring this Consecration during the month of May. This image on these cards beautiful, and the prayer to the Blessed Mother is one that I pray daily. I ordered this pack of cards to donate to my local parish to remind others of the consecration event and to introduce them to this wonderful Marion prayer.
