Mary, Queen of Heaven

Today is the celebration of Mary’s queenship. A particularly Catholic thing, for sure.

I was surprised to find out today that it was typical in ancient Israel for the mother of a King to be addressed as Queen. It’s not something I’m particularly familiar with, but it is an additional connection which is powerful.

And certainly Mary should hold a special position in our personal connection to God and Christ, right? Because she’s the first, most important disciple of God’s incarnation.

She’s the supreme model for all of us.
