Mary  |  Assumption and Queen of Heaven

The biblical fact that Christ Jesus was taken up into heaven as King of Kings is matched in the Catechism of the Catholic Church by the claim that Mary has been assumed into heaven and is now the Queen over all things.

The Catechism Says:

#966 “Finally the Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, when the course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things…”

The Bible Says:

Acts 1:11  This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

I Timothy 6:15 …the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords.

The Catechism Says:

#974 “The Most Blessed Virgin Mary, when the course of her earthly life was completed, was taken up body and soul into the glory of heaven, where she already shares in the glory of her Son’s Resurrection, anticipating the resurrection of all members of his Body.”

The Bible Says:

Isaiah 45:22  In heaven the Lord God alone is glorified.  Look to Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth:  for I am God, and there is none else.

Jeremiah  7:18  The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.



The teaching of the Roman Catholic Church regarding a “Queen of Heaven” is reminiscent of the ancient Phoenicians who worshipped Astarte as the “Queen of Heaven” or of the Babylonians who worshipped Mylitta as their “Queen of Heaven”.  Throughout the history of the world many pagan nations were given over to worshiping a goddess called the “Queen of Heaven”.  A close examination of the Holy Scripture reveals only one reference to a “Queen of Heaven”.  This reference is a dire warning that worshiping a “Queen of Heaven” provokes the true God to anger.  In chapters four and five of the Book of Revelation, heaven is shown and only Christ Jesus is the King of Kings, and Lord of lords.  Are you provoking the anger of the Lord by worshiping the “Queen of Heaven” through your prayers and adoration?
