Our Queen Mother
Danny has written a great article on Our Lady.
Our Lady, Our Queen: On The Queenship Of MaryMore here.
Written by Danny Garland Jr.
Throughout history, Christians have referred to the Blessed Virgin Mary by many different titles. She is the Ark of the New Covenant, the New Eve, the Mystical Rose, the Seat of Wisdom, and Helper of Christians to name a few. Yet, "(o)f the many titles bestowed upon Our Blessed Lady, that of Queen most aptly expresses our sentiments of ardent loyalty and filial devotion towards the Mother of God." (1) In this article, through the intercession and maternal guidance of Our Lady, Queen of Heaven and earth, I plan to explain exactly what it does and does not mean to call Mary "queen." We will also explore the foundations of the term found in Sacred Scripture and the history of its usage in Tradition and magisterial teachings, with the hope that what is presented will contribute to the recognition by all Christians of the Blessed Virgin as our True Queen and Mother.
