"If the Son is a king," says St. Athanasius, "the Mother who begot Him is rightly and truly considered a Queen and Sovereign." "No sooner had Mary," says St. Bernardine of Siena, "consented to be Mother of the Eternal Word, than she merited by this consent to be made Queen of the world and of all creatures."
Since the flesh of Mary" remarks the Abbot Arnold of Chartres, "was not different from
that of Jesus, how can the royal dignity of the Son be denied to the Mother?" "Hence we must consider the glory of the Son, not only as being common to His Mother, but as one with her." (Pages 9 & 10).
In this manner does St. Alphonsus Liguori, one of our Lady's all-time greatest apostles, and one of the greatest writers and Doctors of the Church, zealously and profoundly illuminate the meaning of Mary as "Our Queen, Our Mother, Our Life, Our Sweetness and Our Hope."
Though relatively brief, this book exudes that holy erudition that speaks so poignantly to the heart of the true Catholic. Seldom in life will the reader find a book of such saintly unction as The Blessed Virgin Mary-or one that will leave such a profound and lasting effect.
