Queenship of Mary

…the three Divine Persons placed on the august head of the most holy Virgin a crown of glory, which far exceeded any that ever has or ever shall be awarded to a creature. At the same instant a voice came from the throne, saying: “Our friend and Our chosen one among all other creatures, Our kingdom belongs to thee. Thou art the Sovereign, the Queen and the Mistress of the Seraphim, the Angels Our ministers, and of the entire creation. Guard then, command and reign happily over them. In Our supreme consistory we give thee empire, majesty and dominion, because although filled with grace above all creatures, thou hast humbled thyself in thy mind, and hast always placed thyself in the last place.

[Venerable Mary of Agreda, The Divine Life of the Most Holy Virgin]
