Queen of Heaven and Earth

Queenship of Mary

From Vespers for the Sunday of the Ascension (Ukrainian Greek Catholic):

Who would not call you blessed, O Virgin most holy?

Who would not sing a hymn of praise to the glory of your giving birth without pain or travail?

The Only-begotten Son Himself, begotten of the Father before all ages, was made flesh out of you in a manner that cannot be explained, O Woman most pure!

And for our sake, He Who is God by nature assumed the nature of a man.

He is not divided into two persons;

He is understood to have two natures without commixion or confusion.

O noble and blessed Woman, intercede with Him that He may mercy on our souls.
