The Glorious Mysteries

The Fifteenth Mystery: The Coronation of Our Lady
as Queen of Heaven and Earth

The Fruit: True Devotion to the Mother of God


1. After placing the Most Blessed Mary on her exalted and supereminent Throne, The Lord declared to the Courtiers of Heaven all the privileges She should enjoy in virtue of this participation in His Majesty. The Person of the Eternal Father, as the first principle of all things, speaking to the Angels and Saints, said to them: "Our Daughter Mary was chosen according to Our pleasure from amongst all creatures, the first one to delight Us, and who never fell from the title and position of a True Daughter, such as We had given Her in Our Divine Mind; She has a claim on Our dominion, which We shall recognize by crowning Her as the legitimate and peerless Lady and Sovereign."

2. The Incarnate Word said: "To My True and Natural Mother belong all the creatures which were created and redeemed by Me; and of all things over which I am King, She too shall be the legitimate and Supreme Queen."

The Holy Ghost said: "Since She is called My Beloved and Chosen Spouse, She deserves to be crowned as Queen for all eternity."

4. Having thus spoken the Three Divine Persons placed upon the head of the Most Blessed Mary a crown of such new splendor and value, that the like has been seen neither before nor after by any mere creature. At the same time a voice sounded from the throne saying: "My Beloved, chosen among the creatures, Our Kingdom is Thine; Thou shalt be the Lady and the Sovereign of the Seraphim, of all tale Ministering Spirits, the Angels and of the entire universe of creatures. Attend, proceed and govern prosperously over them, for in Our Supreme Consistory We give Thee power, majesty and sovereignty. Receive now the Supreme Dignity deserved by Thee and, as a participation in Our Divinity, the dominion over all the creatures of Our Omnipotence. By the power We give thee, thou shalt subject Hell with its demons and inhabitants.

5.  In Thy hands and at Thy pleasure We place the influences and forces of the Heavens ... Thou shalt be the Empress and Mistress of the Militant Church, its Protectress, its Advocate, its Mother and Teacher. Thou shalt be the special Patroness of the Catholic countries; and whenever they, or the faithful, or any of the children of Adam call upon Thee from their heart, serve or oblige Thee, Thou shalt relieve and help them in their labors and necessities. Thou shalt be the Friend, the Defender and the Chieftainess of all the just and of Our Friends; all of them Thou shalt comfort, console and fill with blessings according to their devotion to Thee. In view of all this We make Thee the Depository of Our riches, the Treasurer of Our goods; we place into Thy hands the helps and blessings of Our grace for distribution; nothing do We wish to be given to the world, which does not pass through Thy hands; and nothing do We deny, which Thou wishest to concede to men.

6. Grace shall be diffused in Thy lips for obtaining all that Thou wishest and ordainest in Heaven and on Earth, and everywhere shall Angels and men obey Thee; because whatever is Ours shall be Thine, just as Thou hast always been Ours; and Thou shalt reign with Us forever." In the execution of this decree and privilege conceded to the Mistress of the World, the Almighty commanded all the Courtiers of Heaven, Angels and men, to show Her obedience and recognize Her as their Queen and Lady.

Psalm 146: The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear Him: and in them that hope in His mercy.

7. Altogether festive was this day, and it produced new glory in all the Heavens. Those that partook more especially therein were Her most fortunate spouse Saint Joseph, Saint Joachim and Anne and all the other relatives of the Queen, together with the thousand Angels of Her guard.

8. Within the glorious body of the Queen, over Her Heart, was visible to the Saints a small globe or monstrance of singular beauty and splendor, which particularly roused and rouses Their admiration and joy. It was there in testimony and reward of Her having afforded to the Sacramental Word an acceptable resting place and sanctuary, and of Her having received Holy Communion so worthily, purely and holily, without any defect or imperfection, and with a devotion, love and reverence attained by none other of the Saints.

9. In regard to the other rewards and crowns corresponding to Her peerless works and virtues, nothing that can be Said could give any idea; and therefore I refer it to the Beatific Vision, where each one shall perceive them in proportion as his doings and his devotion shall have merited.

10. We leave the Great Lady at the right hand of Her Divine Son, reigning through all the Ages of Eternity. The words of the Queen:

How much My intercession and the power I have in Heaven is worth has never been hidden in the Church, for I have demonstrated My ability to save all by so many thousands of miracles, prodigies and favors operated in behalf of those devoted to Me. With those who have called upon Me in their needs I have always shown Myself liberal, and the Lord has shown Himself liberal to them on My account. The Most High still wishes to give liberally of His Infinite Treasures and resolves to favor those who know how to gain My intercession before God. This is the secure way and the powerful means of advancing the Church, of improving the Catholic reign, of spreading the Faith, of furthering the welfare of families and of states, of bringing the Souls to Grace and to the Friendship of God.
