Hail Holy Queen!
St. Alphonsus Liguori
Hail Holy Queen! is the first and best part of Alphonsus Liguori's masterpiece, The Glories of Mary, one of the greatest Catholic books ever written. St. Alphonsus spent many years collecting the best material on Mary he could find-from the writings of Saints, Doctors of the Church and other holy authors.
However, this book will not be appreciated by those sentimentalists who think that just about everybody goes to Heaven. But anyone who takes seriously Our Lord's many warnings about Hell will be overjoyed to read the amazing statements in this book on Our Lady's God-given role in securing our salvation, with its remarkable stories of miracles and graces obtained through her.
Based on the words of the Salve Regina-the "Hail Holy Queen"-this book explains why Mary is "our life, our sweetness and our hope." It plainly demonstrates the Blessed Virgin Mary's immense love and great mercy toward us and her powerful intercession on our behalf, showing that devotion to Mary is a most certain mark of eternal salvation. It even demonstrates that mortal sinners have a special claim upon her and that she is powerful to help them regain the state of grace. Moreover, it shows how the Holy Ghost has mystically hidden many remarkable secrets about Mary within the pages of Sacred Scripture, where they are to be discovered only by those who are of the True Faith. Also included are favorite prayers and devotions to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Hail Holy Queen!, therefore, is a uniquely consoling book that gives profound encouragement and a firm hope for eternal victory through Mary, the Mother of God, to all who implore her help-because Mary loves us dearly and can obtain for us from her divine Son anything she asks.
