The Queenship of Mary by Andrea di Bartoli

Today August 22, Mary is honored as Queen of the Universe alongside her King.  By Mary’s seed, her son Jesus, she will crush the head of the serpent, that diabolical force of evil in the world (Revelation 12:1-5).

This tradition is supported by the writings of Saint Ephrem (4th century) and Saint Damascene (7th century).

Mary stands as Woman Warrior ready to receive all her children in need and danger.

Hail! Virgin Bride of Christ

Pray for us now and at the hour of our death, amen.
