Crowning of Mary

Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary

"Because the virgin Mary was raised to such a lofty dignity as to be the mother of the King of kings, it is deservedly and by every right that the Church has honored her with the title of 'Queen'."
- St. Alphonsus Ligouri

Grant unto us, we beseech thee, O Lord : that we who celebrate the solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, our Queen, may under her most mighty protection merit to receive peace in this present world, and glory in the world to come. Through the same Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God, for ever and ever.Amen.
