THE QUEENSHIP OF MARY
On October 11, 1954, Pope Pius XII established the Feast of the Queenship of Mary to be celebrated throughout the world, and commanded that on that day each year, the world should renew its consecration to her. The feast is celebrated on August 22nd.
The purpose of the feast is that all may recognize more clearly and venerate more devoutly the merciful motherly sovereignty of her who bore God in her womb.--(Pius XII, Ad. Coeli Reginam)
On the day of her Assumption, Mary our Mother was solemnly crowned by Christ and received by the whole court of heaven as Queen.
What Christ has done in heaven and the Church has done on our behalf, we should now do individually. We should recognize Mary's Queenship, enthrone her in our homes, consecrate ourselves to her, and by this means, establish in our lives the reign of Mary Immaculate Queen of the Universe.
