From the Mystical City of God, an excerpt as told to the incorruptible (see bottom left photo) Venerable Mary of Agreda:
" ... in Heaven He is the King, the Lord and supreme Judge; and the Saints, though their glory exceeds all human calculation, are as servants and inferiors of this inaccessible Majesty.
"In this, the most holy Mary participates in a degree next inferior and in a manner otherwise ineffable and proportionate to a mere creature so closely related to the God-Man; and therefore, She assists forever at the Right Hand of Her Son as Queen (Psalm 44:10), Lady and Mistress of all creation, Her dominion extending as far as that of Her divine Son, although in a different manner.
"After placing the Most Blessed Mary on this exalted and supereminent Throne, the Lord declared to the courtiers of Heaven all the privileges She should enjoy in virtue of this participation in His Majesty.
"The Person of the Eternal Father, as the First Principle of all things, speaking to the Angels and Saints, said to them: 'Our Daughter Mary was chosen according to Our pleasure from amongst all creatures, the first One to delight Us, and who never fell from the title and position of a true Daughter, such as We had given Her in our Divine Mind; She has a claim on Our Dominion, which We shall recognize by crowning Her as the legitimate and peerless Lady and Sovereign.'
"The Incarnate Word said: 'To My true and natural Mother belong all the creatures which were created and redeemed by Me; and of all things over which I am King. She, too, shall be the legitimate and supreme Queen.'
"The Holy Ghost said: 'Since She is called My beloved and chosen Spouse, She deserves to be crowned as Queen for all Eternity.'
"Having thus spoken, the Three Divine Persons placed upon the head of the Most Blessed Mary a crown of such new splendor and value, that the like has been seen neither before or after by any mere creature.
"At the same time, a Voice sounded from the Throne saying: 'My Beloved, chosen among the creatures, Our Kingdom is Thine; Thou shalt be the Lady and the Sovereign of the seraphim, of the ministering spirits, the angels, and of the entire Universe ... .' "
"My daughter, if anything could lessen the enjoyment of the highest felicity and glory which I possess, and if, in it, I could be capable of any sorrow, without a doubt I would be grieved to see the holy Church and the rest of the world in its present state of labor, notwithstanding that men know Me to be their Mother, Advocate and Protectress in Heaven, ready to guide and assist them to eternal life.
"In this state of affairs, when the Almighty has granted Me so many privileges as His Mother, and when there are so many sources of help placed in My hands solely for the benefit of mortals and belonging to Me as the Mother of Clemency, it is a great cause of sorrow to Me to see mortals force Me to remain idle, and that, for want of calling upon Me, so many souls should be lost.
"But if I cannot experience grief now, I may justly complain of men, that they load themselves with eternal damnation and refuse Me the glory of saving their souls.
"How much My intercession and the power I have in Heaven is worth has never been hidden in the Church, for I have demonstrated My ability to save all by so many thousands of Miracles, prodigies and favors operated in behalf of those devoted to Me.
"With those who have called upon Me in their needs, I have always shown Myself liberal; and the Lord has shown Himself liberal to them on My account.
"The Most High still wishes to give liberally of His infinite treasures and resolves to favor those who know how to gain My intercession before God.
"This is the secure way and the powerful means of advancing the Church, of improving the Catholic reigns, of spreading the faith, of furthering the welfare of families and of states, of bringing the souls to grace and to the Friendship of God."
"My daughter, lamentable and inexcusable is the ignorance of men in so knowingly forgetting the eternal glory, which God has prepared for those who dispose themselves to merit it. ...
"This is a sorrow beyond all sorrows, and a misfortune without equal and without remedy. ...
"Mortal and deceived men, what are you doing?
"For what purpose are you living?
"Do you realize what it is to see God face to Face and to participate in His eternal glory and share His company?
"Of what are you thinking?
"Who has thus disturbed and fascinated your judgment?
"What will you seek, if once you have lost this true blessing and happiness, since there is no other?
"The labor is short, the reward is infinite glory, and the punishment is eternal."
