We turn to Our Lady and renew our love for her as Mother while acknowledging her as Queen. 


She is more Mother than Queen’
These words from St Therese remind us that the maternity of Our Lady is the foundation for her power and authority. It is a powerful awakening to realize that we call Mary our Mother because Jesus has called us to be His brothers and sisters. From the Cross, Jesus directs His Mother to behold her son, namely John, but through implication to all of His disciples.
Our Heavenly Mother directs our attention from things that change back to the source of our stability and tranquility, the Heart of Her Son Jesus. –
