First Saturday Meditation From St. Therese: The Coronation of the BVM

"We know very well that the Blessed Virgin Mary is a Queen of Heaven and Earth, but she is more Mother than Queen; and we should not say, on account of her prerogatives, that she surpasses all the saints in glory just as the sun at its rising makes the stars disappear from sight.  My God!  How strange that would be!  A mother who makes her children's glory vanish! I myself think just the contrary.  I believe she'll increase the splendor of the elect very much.

The Blessed Virgin Mary wasn't as fortunate as we are, since she didn't have a Blessed Virgin to love.  And this is one more sweetness for us and one less sweetness for her." - Last Conversations pp 161-162.
