PRAYER TO MARY, QUEEN OF THE UNIVERSE

Mary, Queen of the Universe,
you are a Queen because you are the Mother of the Word Incarnate.
Christ is universal King because He rules all creatures
by His personal union with the Divinity.
He is King and You are Queen of all hearts.

Rule over us by the queenly power of your love
that the Kingdom of your Son –
the Kingdom of truth and life,
holiness and grace,
justice, love and peace –
may come upon earth.
Grant grace to all people,
the Holy Spirit for the Church,
and peace for the whole world.
Amen.


How to Enthrone Mary Immaculate Queen in Your Home
and Consecrate Your Family to Her

A statue or picture may be blessed; If convenient, ask a priest to perform the ceremony, otherwise the head of the family can do it. Prepare her altar with flowers and candles, giving her an honored place in your home where all will see her and often pray to her.

Recite together kneeling:
Act of Contrition; 3 Hail Marys; 3 Glorias; 3 times the invocation:

Mary Immaculate Queen: Triumph and Reign.
followed by the:

Act of Consecration
O Mary Immaculate Queen, glorious Queen of the Universe, most powerful Virgin, merciful Mother of a merciful God and refuge of sinners, we consecrate ourselves to thy Royal and Immaculate Heart.

It is through thee that Jesus Christ our King has come into the world to save it. It is also through thee that He is to reign over the world.

In order to obtain this great benefit for ourselves and all mankind, we come to thy feet to consecrate to thee our persons, our lives, all that we are, all that we have, all that we love. Keep us, enlighten us, dispose of us, reign over us.

May all hearts and all homes willingly proclaim thee as their Immaculate Queen.


PRAYER

O Mary Immaculate Queen, look down upon this distressed and suffering world. Thou knowest our misery and our weakness. O Thou who art our Mother, saving us in the hour of peril, have compassion on us in these days of great and heavy trial.

Jesus has confided to thee the treasure of His Grace, and through Thee He wills to grant us pardon and mercy. In these hours of anguish, therefore, thy children come to Thee as their hope.

We recognize thy Queenship and ardently desire thy triumph. We need a Mother and a Mother's Heart. Thou art for us the luminous dawn which dissipates our darkness and points out the way to life. In thy clemency obtain for us the courage and the confidence of which we have such need.

Most Holy and Adorable Trinity, Thou Who didst crown with glory in Heaven the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Savior, grant that all her children on earth may acknowledge her as their Sovereign Queen, that all hearts, homes, and nations may recognize her rights as Mother and as Queen. Amen.

MARY IMMACULATE QUEEN Triumph and Reign.

Novena to Mary, Queen of All Hearts and Queen of the Universe

"As the vine I have brought forth a pleasant odour: and my flowers are the fruit of honour and riches. I am the mother of fair love, and of fear, and of knowledge, and of holy hope. In me is all grace of the way and of the truth; in me is all hope of life and of virtue."

Ecclesiasticus 24:23-25


Pray this Novena for nine days

O Mary, Queen of All Hearts,
Advocate of the most hopeless cases;
Mother most pure, most compassionate;
Mother of Divine Love, full of divine light,
we confide to your care the favors
which we ask of you today.

Consider our misery, our tears,
our interior trials and sufferings.

We know that you can help us
through the merits of your Divine Son, Jesus.

We promise to spread and praise your glory,
by making you known under the title of
Mary, Queen of All Hearts, Queen of the Universe.

Grant, we beseech you, hear our prayers,
for every day you give us so many proofs of
your love and intercession to
heal both body and soul.

We hope against all odds;
ask Jesus to cure us, pardon us,
and grant us final perseverance.

O Mary, Queen of All Hearts and Queen of the Universe, help us, we have in confidence you.

Prayer to Mary, Queen of the Universe, by Pope Pius XII

From the depths of this tearful earth where sorrowing humanity makes weary progress – through the surges of this sea of ours endlessly buffeted by the winds of passion – we raise our eyes to you, O Most Beloved Mother Mary, to be comforted by the contemplation of your glory and to hail you as Queen of heaven and earth. Queen of mankind. Queen of Peace.

With legitimate filial pride, we wish to exalt your Queenship and to recognize it as due to the sovereign excellence of your whole being, O holiest One, truly Mother of Him Who is King by right, by inheritance, and by conquest.

Reign, O Mother and Queen, by showing us the path of holiness, and by guiding and assisting us that we may never stray from it.

In the heights of heaven you exercise your primacy over the choirs of angels who acclaim you as their Sovereign, and over the legions of saints who delight in beholding your dazzling beauty. So, too, reign over the entire human race, above all by opening the path of faith to those who do not yet know your Divine Son.

Reign over the Church, which acknowledges and extols your gentle dominion and has recourse to you as a safe refuge amid the calamities of our day.

Reign especially over that part of the Church which is persecuted and oppressed, giving it strength to bear adversity, constancy never to yield under unjust compulsion, light to avoid falling into enemy snares, firmness to resist overt attack, and at every moment unwavering faithfulness to your kingdom.

Reign over men’s minds, that they may seek only what is true;

over their wills, that they may follow solely what is good;

over their hearts, that they may love nothing but what you yourself love.

Reign over individuals and over families, as well as over societies and nations; over the assemblies of the powerful, the councils of the wise, as over the simple aspirations of the humble.

Reign in the streets and the squares, in the cities and the villages, in the valleys and the mountains, in the air, on land and on the sea; and hear the pious prayer of all those who recognize that yours is a reign of mercy, in which every petition is heard, every sorrow comforted, every misfortune relieved, every infirmity healed.

Obtain for us that all who now in every corner of the world acclaim and hail you Queen of Peace, may one day in heaven enjoy the fullness of your kingdom in the vision of your Divine Son, Who with the Father and the Holy Spirit, lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.

– Pope Pius XII
