22nd August – Feast of the Queenship of Mary


“I received your note and now things are going well. Unite yourself with pure intentions of that dear Infant and sacrifice yourself to God in a odour of sweetness in the pure Heart of Mary Most Holy.

That great heart, which after the Heart of Jesus is the Queen of Hearts, has loved and loves God more than all of paradise together. I mean more than all the angels and saints who have been , are, and will be. So you must desire to love the Sovereign Good with that most pure heart, with the intention of exercising all the virtues that she exercised.”

Letter of St. Paul of the Cross to Agnes Grazi, 31st August 1743


Father, you have given us the mother of your Son to be our queen and mother. With the support of her prayers may we come to share the glory of your children in the kingdom of heaven.
