This feast day celebrates the queenship our Blessed Mother. As the mother of Jesus Christ, the Lord of all creation, Mary shares in his royal heritage.
Mary’s queenship foreshadows the glory in heaven which awaits all of us who recognize her son as ruler of the universe.
Jesus is King throughout all eternity by nature and by right of conquest: through Him, with Him, and subordinate to Him, Mary is Queen by grace, by divine relationship, by right of conquest, and by singular choice [of the Father]. And her kingdom is as vast as that of her Son and God, since nothing is excluded from her dominion.Pope Pius XII
