Enthroning Mary in our home

By the enthronement of Our Lady as Queen of their home, the faithful are invited to respond to Christ's call made at the moment of his blessed Passion, to take Mary into their homes.

"Do not fear to take Mary home" (cf Mt 1, 20). Like saint Joseph in Nazareth and saint John at the foot of the Cross, they welcome the Mother of God into their houses and their daily lives, so that She can help them to sanctify all areas of their existence, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

The enthronement of Mary, Immaculate Queen in homes is a specific apostolate of the Fraternity, a treasure which is its mission to make known, within the Church.

The Enthronement : practical points

Who enthrones Mary?
All the faithful who wish to dedicate their lives and homes to Mary.

How does the enthronement take place?
The enthronement takes place during a simple family ceremony, led by a member of the Fraternity, or by a messenger mandated for this. After the blessing of the home and a sharing of the Word of God, a picture, statue or icon of Our Lady is put in a place of honour in the home or workplace. The ceremony concludes with the enthronement prayer, recited before this image.

How should I prepare for the enthronement in my home?
Contact your nearest Fraternity house by phone or email; a programme of preparation will be suggested to you.
