August 22 – Queenship of Mary

Queenship of Mary

listenDear God, the Feast Day of Mary Our Queen was instituted by Pope Pius XII to consecrate the whole human race to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  I ask our Holy Queen to renew this consecration.  Protect each person in this world as the precious child of God that we are.  Fight for us against the wickedness and temptations of the devil, convict us of our need for repentance, and lead us to reconciliation through Jesus.  O Lord, bring all of humanity under the authority of Mary’s queenship.  Jesus have mercy on us and on the whole world, and help us to fully use the tools of conversion.  Mary our Queen, pray for us.  Amen.

Quote for Today

Venerable Pope Pius XII (1876-1958)

quoteLet all, therefore, try to approach with greater trust the throne of grace and mercy of our Queen and Mother, and beg for strength in adversity, light in darkness, consolation in sorrow; above all let them strive to free themselves from the slavery of sin and offer an unceasing homage, filled with filial loyalty, to their Queenly Mother.”
