“The Crowning of the Virgin by the Trinity” (detail) by Velázquez

“When we were little, we kept close to our mother in a dark alley or if dogs barked at us. Now, when we feel temptations of the flesh, we should run to the side of Our Mother in Heaven, by realizing how close she is to us, and by means of aspirations. She will defend us and lead us to the light.” (St. Josemaría Escrivá)

August 22 is the Memorial of the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Our Lady, Mother and Queen)
