Our Lady, Queen of the Universe


Master of the St Lucy Legend – note the musician angels….


From Lumen Gentium:

“Finally, the Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all guilt of original sin, on the completion of her earthly sojourn, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen of the universe, that she might be the more fully conformed to her Son, the Lord of lords and the conqueror of sin and death.”[1]

The Basilica of Our Lady Queen of the Universe was established after the opening of Disney World, Florida, to provide a place of worship for Roman Catholics. A Latin Rite Basilica, it has been conjectured that the title is especially apposite as the Basilica is near Cape Canaveral. There are other churches named after Our Lady Queen of the Universe in other places. The title seems about the right size to me.
