Mary Queen Of Heaven
And Your Advocate Before
Her Son Jesus
"...After that, he saith to the disciple:
Behold thy mother. And from that hour,
the disciple took her to his own."
Mary was crowned by Jesus as the Queen of Heaven and Earth. This truth is studied
in the final of the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary, the Coronation of Mary.
Who is Mary you may ask.
Well she is much more than a simple Jewish girl from
the New Testament.
She is Mary Mother of Jesus, Mary the Mother of God, Mary our Advocate, Mary our Helper,
Mary our Benefactress, Mary our Mediatrix, Mary our Mother and Mary our Queen.
With a firm historical knowledge of how God deals with the human race, these
titles of Mary can be easily deduced from Sacred Scripture.
Below are some verses that will enhance your Scriptural Rosary prayers on Mary
the Queen of Heaven...
These Bible passages for Mary, Queen of Heaven were taken from the timeless Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible.
"And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon
under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars" -Apocalypse 12:1
"Who is she that cometh forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright
as the sun, terrible as an army set in array?" -Canticle of Canticles 6:9
"All the glory of the king's daughter is within in golden borders, Clothed round
about with varieties. After her shall virgins be brought to the king: her neighbours
shall be brought to thee. They shall be brought with gladness and rejoicing:
they shall be brought into the temple of the king." -Psalm 44:14-16
"Thou art the glory of Jerusalem, thou art the joy of Israel, thou art the honour
of our people" -Judith 15:10

Mary The Queen Of Heaven And Earth
Has Powerful Intercessory Power
Before The Throne Of God
"There never failed the pillar of the cloud by day,
nor the pillar of fire by night, before the people.
Knowing that Mary as Queen of Heaven is also your Queen and Mother, you can place
trust and confidence in her intercessory power.
It is true that Jesus is the primary advocate between God and mankind, but this
does not mean that there cannot be other, secondary advocates.
Jesus is the advocate with God the Father and Mary is the advocate with Jesus.
This concept is firmly based in Scripture.
When examining the wedding
feast at Cana, it is clear that Mary interceded for the wedding party and
she continues to be the advocate for her children to this day.
As Queen of Heaven and Earth, she continues to intercede on her children's behalf.
She asks her Son, Jesus to send the graces needed to secure their eternal salvation.
Mary is both your Queen and your mother and she loves you in particular.
Mary the Advocate - Mary cares for all her dear children. She knows their
sufferings for she too suffered. It is comforting to know that you can turn to
her in your time of need. Mary's humility and obedience makes her pleasing in the
sight of God, for she perfected all virtues and was free from sin from the moment
she was created in her mother's womb. For this reason, her prayers are more powerful
than even the angels before the throne of God. Jesus would deny nothing she asks of Him.
Mary the Helper - Mary helps her children. Her power and the power of her Rosary have been demonstrated
many times in history when those who placed themselves in her care were miraculously saved.
Mary the Benefactress - Mary distributes many graces. These graces are necessary to live a holy life and to perfect the virtues. Jesus is pleased to allow her to distribute these graces that were earned by the merits of His suffering and death.
Mary the Mediatrix - Mary mediates for mankind. Mary played a huge role
in the redemption of mankind. Mary first said yes to God then through her consent,
the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.
Mary offered Jesus as a sacrifice to God when she presented Him in the temple.
At this time Simeon prophesied that her heart too would be pierced by a sword.
Mary suffered along with Jesus at the foot of the cross.
For this reason, God will grant all her requests.
She cares for you while you struggle amidst the trials and tribulations of everyday life.
She will continue to do so until you make it to your eternal home, heaven.
Place yourself in the hands of Mary.
She will assure that you are washed clean
and purified in the precious blood her Divine Son.
