Mary, Mother of God, and Queen of Heaven?
Mary is “Queen of Heaven”? How can Mary be the queen of anything, much less Queen of Heaven? Mary is “royalty” by virtue of being the mother of the Messiah, who is of Davidic lineage. Moreover, since Jesus is the Word made flesh, the Second Person of the Trinity incarnate, Mary is – as the Council of Ephesus offically declared her in 431 a.d. – the Theotokos. , the “God-bearer”, the Mother of God. Catholics began to address the Mother of God with honorific titles as she who is crowned “Queen of the Angels” and “Queen of Heaven.” Saint John Damascene argues for Mary not only as Queen of Heaven, but also as Queen of Creation: When she became Mother of the Creator, she truly became Queen of every creature.
