May, the month of Mary
Why do we call Mary Queen?
Mary's Queenship is one of love and service, not pomp and power, as is said about her son (Jn 18:36; Mt 20:20). It is thus pointed out that the roots of Mary's Queenship are to be found in the Paschal Mystery of Christ, which is a mystery of self-giving, death, and resurrection-ascension, the reaching of glory through humility (abasement-exaltation). Along these lines of theological reflection we see four reasons why Mary deserves to be Queen:
She is Queen because she is the Mother of the Lord
She is Queen because she is wholeheartedly associated with her Son’s salvific work
She is Queen because she is the perfect disciple of Christ
She is the most excellent member of the Church, because of her mission and holiness.
All of these reasons show that Mary's Queenship can only be understood as a gift of her son to participate in his excellence of love. They also show that it is within the kingly status of the People of God that Mary-Queen fulfills her true vocation.
