Mary, as Mother of the Church

Today the church celebrates Mary, as Mother of the Church. On March 3rd, 2018, Pope Francis issued a decree that the Memorial the Blessed Virgin Mother of the Church be observed on the Monday after Pentecost. Recent Popes Paul VI, John Paul II, and Benedict XVI began stressing this title, but in fact, it is a very old title going back at least as far as Saint Ambrose, who died in the 4th century, and Saint Augustine who died in the 5th century.
