MARY, QUEEN OF THE UNIVERSE

The Blessed Virgin Mary was crowned as Queen of the Universe after Her Glorious Assumption into Heaven.

This only makes sense, as Her Divine Son, God, Himself, Is King of the Universe.  He createdst a Perfect Woman, named Mary, to be His Mother.  He redeemedst Her in advance, He preservedst Her from all stain of original sin, and confirmedst Her in grace.  If She had said, “No,” instead of “Yes,” when Holy Archangel Gabriel asked her to become The Mother of God, God The Son wouldst not have come to earth and wouldst not have redeemed us.  Mary was our last chance for salvation.  Since God The Son chose to come to earth, as a Baby, through Mary, He chooses to send all graces to us through Her Most Holy Hands, as our Mediatrix with Him, Who Is The Only Mediator with The Father.  We definitely please The King – Jesus – when we honor and please The Queen – Mary.

The Queenship of Mary is celebrated in the traditional calendar of A.D. 1962 on May 31stNovena:  5/22-5/31;

in the new calendar on August 22ndNovena:  8/13-8/22.

Her Coronation is celebrated traditionally on August 18thNovena:  8/9-8/18.

SALVE, MARIA!

SALVE, REGINA

In Latin:

Salve, Regina, Mater Mis­eri­cor­diae, Vita, Dul­cedo et Spes nos­tra, Salve.  Ad Te cla­ma­mus exules filii Hevae; ad Te sus­pi­ra­mus gementes et flentes in hac lacry­marum valle.  Eia ergo, Advo­cata nos­tra, illos Tuos Mis­eri­cordes Ocu­los ad nos con­verte.  Et Jesum, Bene­dic­tum Fruc­tum Ven­tris Tui , nobis post hoc exsil­ium ostende, O Clemens, O Pia, O Dul­cis Virgo Maria.

Hail, Holy Queen!

In Eng­lish:

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, hail, our life, our sweet­ness, and our hope.  To Thee do we cry, poor ban­ished chil­dren of Eve;  to Thee do we sigh, mourn­ing and weep­ing in this vale of tears.  Ah then, our Advo­cate, turn Thine Eyes of Mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us The Blessed Fruit of Thy Womb, Jesus.  O Mer­ci­ful, O Lov­ing, O Sweet Vir­gin Mary!
