The Queenship of Mary

"Immaculate Virgin, Mother of God and Mother of men...we believe, that in the glory over which thou reignest, clothed with the sun and crowned with stars, thou art, after Jesus, the joy and delight of all the angels and of all the saints; and we, from this world through which we pass as pilgrims comforted by our faith in the future resurrection, look towards thee, our life, our sweetness and our hope. May thy gentle voice lead us, so that one day, when our exile is over, thou mayest show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary."

(Extract for the prayer of Pius XII on the occasion of the Definition of the Dogma of the Assumption--November 1st, 1950)
