In 1964 Pope Paul VI declared Mary as "Mother of the Church." John Paul II later gave permission that this invocation be inserted in the litany universally.

Prayer to Mary by Pope Paul VI

May the most beloved Mother of the Lord, after whose example you have consecrated your lives to God, obtain for you in your daily journeying that lasting joy which Jesus alone can give. May your life, following her example, give witness to that "maternal love, which should animate all those who, associated in the apostolic mission of the Church, collaborate in the regeneration of men."(72) Beloved sons and daughters, may the joy of the Lord transfigure your consecrated life and may His love make it fruitful. With deep affection We bless you in His name.

(Prayer in the concluding paragraph of the Apostolic Exhortation Evangelica Testificatio on the Renewal of the Religious Life According to the Teaching of the Second Vatican Council June 29, 1971)
