In celebrating the Queenship of Mary, we are reminded that we are the chosen people of God and we are also His royal children. So as God’s chosen and royal people, all that we do and say must be geared towards giving glory to God. Mary shows us how to do that when she responds to God’s call by accepting God’s will. In doing so, Mary gives us a concrete example of obedience in the form of service as God’s handmaid. We are not just the chosen and royal people of God, princes and princesses, but also the chosen and royal servants of Christ the king. With Mary as our Queen, let us offer ourselves in service to the church.
