Come to Reign over us!

Today is the Feast of the Queenship of Our Blessed Lady
- before that it was the Feast of Our Lady Mediatrix of All Graces - 
and the Processional Copy of Our Lady of Christchurch
 was enthroned before the holy altar in 
St Teresa's Church, Riccarton, Christchurch
 during the traditional sung Holy Mass. 
 Afterwards roses
 (which one can see arranged before Our Lady)
 were blessed and distributed in honour of
 Our Blessed Lady's Queenship
 of this City and the Universe.
 Providentially a faithful soul
 had also brought a single snapdragon flower to Mass
 - it is winter in Christchurch
 and the flowers are not common now - 
recalling that the medieval name for this flower was
 "Our Lady's Slipper".
 Most appropriately for today
 she showed us how they as children
 had been taught to open the flower
 and behold inside "Our Lady's Sceptre". 
May her sweet reign never cease!

May this loving Queen and Mother take to her Immaculate Heart her two Deacons to be ordained on 22nd June, and her Sub Deacon still waiting, and, thus, still serving.
May she stay any qualm and fill them with trust in God's Providence and in her own unparalleled protection.
The divine Spouse of their souls will make them priests forever after His Own Heart!
