Mateusz KucaIn St. Peter’s Square is the mosaic dedicated to Mary, Mater Ecclesiae (Mother of the Church). The mosaic was installed after the assassination attempt against Pope St. John Paul II in 1981.

Cardinal Angelo Comastri will lead a candlelight Rosary procession around St. Peter’s Square on the four Saturdays of May. A second Vatican initiative will be a walking prayer service stopping at images of the Virgin Mary found in St. Peter’s Basilica on Wednesdays.
