Ordo Coronandi Imaginem Beatae Mariae Virginis

Last updated

The Ordo Coronandi Imaginem Beatae Mariae Virginis is a Pontifical book of instruction used within the Roman Catholic Church.

The ecclesiastical work gives the official instruction of how a venerated statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary should be crowned. The 1981 edition was approved by Pope Paul VI through the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments which authorizes exemplary Marian images that are approved for a Canonical Coronation.

Pope Paul VI Pope of the Roman Catholic Church from 1963 to 1978

Pope Saint Paul VI was head of the Catholic Church and sovereign of the Vatican City State from 21 June 1963 to his death in 1978. Succeeding John XXIII, he continued the Second Vatican Council which he closed in 1965, implementing its numerous reforms, and fostered improved ecumenical relations with Eastern Orthodox and Protestant churches, which resulted in many historic meetings and agreements. Montini served in the Holy See's Secretariat of State from 1922 to 1954. While in the Secretariat of State, Montini and Domenico Tardini were considered as the closest and most influential advisors of Pius XII, who in 1954 named him Archbishop of Milan, the largest Italian diocese. Montini later became the Secretary of the Italian Bishops' Conference. John XXIII elevated him to the College of Cardinals in 1958, and after the death of John XXIII, Montini was considered one of his most likely successors.

The Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments is the congregation of the Roman Curia that handles most affairs relating to liturgical practices of the Latin Church as distinct from the Eastern Catholic Churches and also some technical matters relating to the Sacraments. Its functions were originally exercised by the Sacred Congregation of Rites, set up in January 1588 by Pope Sixtus V.

The work is also considered as an important instruction and teaching in Mariology, Marian cult and devotion. These instructions only can be performed by a Catholic bishop in name of the reigning Pope, even if the Papal bull of coronation was signed by a previously reigning Pontiff. The instruction prescribes the materials that can be used for the crowns, often in high quality and appropriate sacred regalia.

Mariology

Mariology is the theological study of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Mariology methodically relates teachings about her to other parts of the faith, such as teachings about Jesus, redemption and grace. Christian Mariology aims to connect scripture, tradition and the teachings of the Church on Mary. In the context of social history, Mariology may be broadly defined as the study of devotion to and thinking about Mary throughout the history of Christianity.

Catholic Mariology study of Mary, mother of Jesus

Catholic Mariology refers to Mariology—the systematic study of the person of Mary, mother of Jesus, and of her place in the Economy of Salvation—within Catholic theology. Mary is seen as having a singular dignity above the saints. The Catholic Church teaches that she was conceived without original sin, therefore receiving a higher level of veneration than all other saints. Catholic Mariology thus studies not only her life but also the veneration of her in daily life, prayer, hymns, art, music, and architecture in modern and ancient Christianity throughout the ages.
