Accustom yourself continually to make many acts of love,
for they enkindle and melt the soul.
(St. Teresa of Avila)
August 22nd is the Feast of the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
This title of Our Lady, Queen of Heaven (Regina Caeli), is rooted in biblical history where the mother of Israel’s king had the royal title of Queen Mother.
Church Tradition holds that once Mary, the Mother of God, was assumed body and soul into heaven at the end of her earthy life, she was crowned as Queen of Heaven and Earth to reign alongside her Son, Jesus the King of Kings.
Give it to God…
…and go to sleep.
Life is good.
Sometimes we forget.
