5th Glorious Mystery of the Rosary ¤
Reading from Scripture: Genesis 3: v15
"I will make you enemies of each other: you and the woman, your offspring and her offspring. It will crush your head and you will strike its heel."
Meditation: The Holy Trinity crowns their daughter, mother and spouse, as Queen of Heaven of all the Angels and the Saints. But Mary remains our Mother, always present with her children as they pilgrim on their journey through this vale of tears.
Most Holy Trinity, I adore you profoundly for all that Mary is to you and to us.
Mary, my Mother and my Queen, I choose to co-operate with the triumph of your Immaculate Heart, that God's great plan through you may be realised.
"This is really the meaning of Our Lady as Queen of Heaven: Queen of Mercy, Queen of the compassionate outreach of the Father's love in her Son. And so she stands as the greatest gift to the human race. She is one of us, somebody who is now living her humanity to the full, and who is living it for us, for our salvation, and is there always with that power and authority that comes from God, to take every single human being by the hand and lead them into His merciful presence. So we really do thank the Father for this greatest of gifts, this wonderful friend, this wonderful mother, this wonderful person, who embodies the fullness of God's merciful compassion for the human race. We turn to her and ask her always to be with us, especially in moments of greatest need. Mary, Queen of Peace, pray for us.'
