Good Queen Mary

Procl.: 19 Iulii MDLIII
† 17 Nov. MDLVIII

A Queen filled with love

The use of the rod can actually be a service of love. Today we can see that it has nothing to do with love ... if heresy is allowed to spread and the faith twisted and chipped away, as if it were something that we ourselves had invented. As if it were no longer God’s gift, the precious pearl which we cannot let be taken from us.
Benedict XVI

[Our regular feature in honor of Mary, Queen of England and Ireland, Queen Consort of Spain and its possessions: May she rest in peace.]

Saint Joan,
Saint Tim,
Queen Mary
Of Scotts

The true Mass
So knew
Their true lots.

They could
Have said
"Oh no
I shant!"

But they
Were Saints
No persons

Not ones
To lord
Their innate

While being
Prepared like
On wood.

Or having
Their eye-lids
And nipped

Even though were
With kings
They sipped.

No, no
With joy
No fuss...

"For you, et
Pro multis."
Now daily
For us!

She could have executed the Catholic Reformation in England had she and Cardinal Pole lived.

@Ben Vallejo-
Agreed. How different things would have been if Queen Mary I and Reginald Pole, Cardinal Archbishop of Canterbury (the Lat True ABC) would have lived another 20 years. They had a plan but could not execute it. So very sad for England, Mary's Dowry.
