Feast of The Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary

August 22nd, 2017
The Queenship of Mary

“And Mary said; ‘My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour, for he has looked with favour on the lowliness of His servant.'” (Luke 1 : 46)

During the middle ages Mary was venerated as queen of the angels and saints.  Mary is queen because of her divine maternity and because of her association with Jesus’ mission.  Just as Jesus ascended into heaven and now sits at the right hand of God in glory,  Mary was assumed body and soul and crowned as Queen of Heaven and Earth.
