In the busy days of summer the Church asks us to pause today and turn our eyes toward Heaven where His beloved Mother reigns as Queen. Just one week after we celebrated Our Lady's Assumption into the Presence of the Triune God we consider and honor her as the Queen Mother, the Queen of Heaven and Earth.
She is my mother, she is my Queen. I hope she is that for you as well.
"In dangers, in doubts, in difficulties, think of Mary. Call upon Mary. Let not her name depart from your lips, never suffer it to leave your heart. And to more surely obtain the assistance of her prayer, neglect not to walk in her footsteps." (St. Bernard of Clairvaux)
