The Queenship of Mary

The last day of May, the glorious month of Our Blessed Mother, honors her with three outstanding titles: Our Lady, the Queen, Our Lady, Mediatrix of All Graces, and Our Lady, the Mother of Fair Love. The Queenship of Mary refers to her absolute dominion over all creation by virtue of being the Mother of the King by Whom the world was created. Mary is the Virgin Mother who brought forth the King of Heaven and earth. She is, and should be called, Queen of All Creation. Everything we look at in the order of grace and of nature should be immediately related to her. Nothing is ever done by God, or ever was done, without Mary in His mind. Hers is the Sovereign Majesty of everything God made and of everything He bestows by grace. In the Litany of Loreto, Mary is called Queen twelve times. The authors and dispensers of this book love to call Our Lady, Queen of the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
