Franciscan Crown: Coronation of Mary

If you remember last week I said this is often combined with Assumption or done instead of it. The Coronation is one of those events that some say is only alluded to in the Bible in Revelation with the Mary as the woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars”. So after Mary had gone up to heaven she is crowned as Queen of Heaven and Earth. Let us remember this and try to take care of the world around us in honor of our holy mother.  During the month of May local parishes might hold a May Crowning. The feast of the Coronation is on August 22nd. This is the final Glorious mystery and the final Joy of the virgin.
