Today is a special feast of Our Lady. It used to be celebrated on May 31 and then was changed to August 22 when the Immaculate Heart of Mary was celebrated on the day after the feast of the Sacred Heart. I like the Collect for today:
O God, who made the Mother of your Son,
to be our Mother and our Queen,
graciously grant that, sustained by her intercession,
we may attain in the heavenly Kingdom
the glory promised to your children.
That is really what we are about on this earth; our real purpose is to attain heaven however we want to word it. I think that if we are focused on our end, we will love one another and live holy lives.
