Our Patroness: Mary Immaculate Queen
Our Patroness, Mary Immaculate Queen, with all the emblems of her royalty: her cloak, with its border of ermine, envelopes the earth and denotes sovereign majesty. The sceptre in her right hand, which she holds slightly inclined in token of mercy, affirms her power and authority. The dazzling whiteness of her garments, and also of the lily lying at her feet, evokes her virginal purity. The side of her cloak turned towards men is the color of dawn and speaks to them of hope. The rosary she wears invites us to prayer, and the roses adorning the large beads are symbolic of her boundless love. She moves forward on the sphere, which represents the world, to meet her children in order to assist them in their trials; yet her feet do but glide over the earth as a reminder that this world is but a passage leading to the Eternal Homeland.
