The Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Pius XII established this feast in 1954. But Mary’s queenship has roots in Scripture. At the Annunciation, Gabriel announced that Mary’s Son would receive the throne of David and rule forever. At the Visitation, Elizabeth calls Mary “mother of my Lord.” As in all the mysteries of Mary’s life, Mary is closely associated with Jesus: Her queenship is a share in Jesus’ kingship. We can also recall that in the Old Testament the mother of the king has great influence in court.
In the fourth century St. Ephrem (June 9) called Mary “Lady” and “Queen.” Later Church fathers and doctors continued to use the title. Hymns of the 11th to 13th centuries address Mary as queen: “Hail, Holy Queen,” “Hail, Queen of Heaven,” “Queen of Heaven.”
The Dominican rosary and the Franciscan crown as well as numerous invocations in Mary’s litany celebrate her queenship. The feast is a logical follow-up to the Assumption and is now celebrated on the octave day of that feast. In his 1954 encyclical To the Queen of Heaven, Pius XII points out that Mary deserves the title because she is Mother of God, because she is closely associated as the New Eve with Jesus’ redemptive work, because of her preeminent perfection and because of her intercessory power.

Let’s Pray for those in the Service
O, Lord God of hosts, O God of our salvation, O God who alone workest wonders, do thou now look down with mercy and compassion on thy humble servants and out of love for mankind hearken and have mercy on us. Look with mercy, we pray thee, O Lord, on those of our sons and daughters who now serve in our Armed Forces, and who in obedience to their superiors have for our sakes placed themselves in harm’s way. Grant that those who request the protection of thy right hand may be overpowered by no adverse force, and may the invited defense of thy mighty power shield thy faithful sons and daughters.
Watch over them, O Lord, and bring them back safely to those who love them.
Grant courage and steadfast faith to them and to those who long for their
return. Bring a quick and bloodless end to these conflicts and spare the lives of
the innocent. Grant no increase to the numbers of widows and orphans and
relieve the privations of the bereaved and wounded, whether wounded in body
or in soul. Restore peace in our day, O Lord, that thy truth may go forth
unhindered, for Thou, O Lord, art the Prince of Peace and art ever-glorified with
thine unoriginate Father and the all-holy, good, and life-giving Spirit, now and
ever, and unto ages of ages.
