August 22 we celebrate the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary. I am happy to start my blog today and offer it all under the protection of Our Lady, Mary Queen of Heaven and earth. "Regina Coeli" is latin for Queen of Heaven. We shall open this blog with this prayer:
Queen of Heaven, rejoice, alleluia.
For He whom you did merit to bear, alleluia.Has risen, as he said, alleluia.
Pray for us to God, alleluia.Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, alleluia.
For the Lord has truly risen, alleluia.Let us pray. O God, who gave joy to the world through the resurrection of Thy Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, grant we beseech Thee, that through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, His Mother, we may obtain the joys of everlasting life. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
