Mary Queen of Heaven – An Incredible Labor of Love, Faith, and Hope
This statue of Mary Queen of Heaven stands 20 inches tall and is made from dolomite stone and resin. A community of cloistered nuns create, fashion, and hand-finish this statue in the atelier of their monastery in Western Europe. Each nun prayerfully undertakes a designated task towards the completion of each statue of Mary Queen of Heaven. How, where, and by whom this statue is made shows that this statuette is without question ”culturally authentic” and an incredible labor of love, faith and hope!
Mary – “Queen” of Heaven?
According to Catholic teaching, after her death Mary was taken up or “assumed” into Heaven. If Mary was taken up into Heaven as the Virgin Mother of Jesus, the Mother of God, the Theotokos, she must surely hold a very high place in Heaven indeed! And, in fact, Catholics began to address her as the one crowned “Queen of the Angels” and “Queen of Heaven.” Saint John Damascene asserted: When she became Mother of the Creator, she truly became Queen of every creature.
