When I pray the rosary, I have a hard time with the last of the Glorious Mysteries…when Mary is Crowned as Queen of Heaven and Earth. I’ve seen many paintings of Mary, sitting on a throne, with God and Jesus placing a crown upon her head. When I’m mediating on this mystery, I have a difficult time picturing this in my mind without “figuratively” rolling my eyes.
While I have absolute belief in Mary’s queenship, my view is that Mary became queen after the Assumption without the coronation ceremony. I know I’m making a mountain out a molehill but when praying the rosary, I do make the disclaimer, “This didn’t happen this way” when the coronation image enters my head.
