Feast Day: August 22

The concept of the Queenship of Mary is biblical, found in the Old and New Testament, especially in the Annunciation narratives. The angel tells her that her Son will be King over the house of Jacob forever, thus she is the queen mother. The early Church Fathers studied this concept and agreed with it. Pope Pius XII expressed it theologically in his encyclical “The Queenship of Mary” (Ad Caeli Reginam) in 1954.

“The purpose of the Feast is that all may recognize more clearly and venerate more devoutly the merciful and motherly sovereignty of her who bore God in her womb” (Ven. Pius XII, Ad. Coeli Reginam).
