Quote/s of the Day – 31 May – The Queenship of Mary
“If the Son is a King,
the Mother who begot him
is rightly and truly considered
a Queen and Sovereign.”
St Athanasius (297-373)
Father and Doctor of the Church
“She is the eldest daughter of the Great King.
If you enjoy her favour,
she will introduce you
to the Monarch of the Universe.
No-one has so great an interest with Him than Mary,
who was the occasion of His coming down from Heaven
to become man, for the redemption of mankind.”
St John the Merciful (c 552-c 616)
“And as Queen,
she possesses, by right,
the whole Kingdom of her Son.”
Rupert of Deutz OSB (c 1075- c 1130)
“So Mary is a Queen.
And, for our consolation,
we ought to remember
that she is a most tender and kind Queen,
eager to help us in our miseries.
So much so, that the Church wants us
to call her in this prayer, a Queen of Mercy.
Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy!”
St Alphonsus Liguori (1696-1787)
Most Zealous Doctor
