Last Sunday, August 19, Rev. Fr. Primitivo E. Viray, S.J., provincial superior of the Philippine Jesuit Province, celebrated a high mass in honor of the Queenship of Mary at 6 p.m.

Eucharistic celebrations, novenas, and processions will be held tomorrow in several Catholic churches and Marian shrines across the country. Many will pray the holy rosary, including the Litany of the Blessed Mother, which proclaims her queenship in twelve instances.

In his encyclical letter Ad Caeli Reginam (To the Queen of Heaven), Pope Pius XII, who instituted the feast on Oct. 11, 1954 said, “The Blessed Mother is the Queen of Heaven and Earth because she is the Mother of God and because of her preeminent perfection and her intercessory power. Mary is queen by grace, by divine relationship, by right of conquest, and by singular election,” the late Pontiff said.
