"This is why the blessed Virgin is called powerful - nay, sometimes, all-powerful, because she has, more than anyone else, more than all the angels and saints, this great, prevailing gift of prayer. No one has access to the Almighty as His Mother has; none has merit such as hers. Her Son will deny her nothing that she asks; and herein lies her power. While she defends the Church, neither height nor depth, neither men nor evil spirits, neither great monarchs, nor craft of man, nor popular violence, can avail to harm us; for human life is short, but Mary reigns above, a Queen forever." (Cardinal Newman) The Queenship of Mary is the final gift/grace/favor God has given Mary. She was conceived free from Original Sin, her Immaculate Conception. She remained a virgin before, during and after the birth of Jesus. She is the Mother of our Savior, Jesus Christ. She shared in the death of Jesus silently at the foot of the cross. She became our mother. She was assumed into Heaven after her death. She is crowned Queen of Heaven and earth. All is gift/grace/favor from God.
