Litany of Loreto

Immaculate Conception’s stained glass windows from our church show Mary through symbols as the Tower of Ivory, Tower of David and the Mystical Rose.  These titles for Mary are part of the invocations in the Litany of Loreto.  Pope Francis recently added three additional invocations to the Litany: Mother of mercy, Mother of hope, and Solace of migrants. Free copies of The History & Meaning of Our Stained Glass Windows are available in the Gathering Space. For additional information on the Litany of Loreto, go to  https://www.vaticannews.va/en/pope/news/2020-06/pope-francis-loreto-litany-new-invocations.html
