Aug. 22, 2018 (Queenship of Mary)

This is the octave (8th day) after the Assumption and links this Memorial with that Solemnity. The theological basis for this Memorial is found in the antiphon for the Canticle of Mary for the Solemnity of the Assumption: “Today, the Virgin Mary was taken up to heaven; rejoice, for she reigns with Christ for ever.”
