According to the rarely employed Papal Infallibility thing, Mary, the Mother of Jesus, is literally the Queen of Heaven. As such, this is Church dogma, as elaborated below, by a Pope in 1946.
Does it make NO sense, therefore, that a reference to this article of faith is not mentioned it the Apostles Creed? Why is there no abbreviated mention of the excerpt below during the Creed, which is always recited during Roman Catholic Mass??
"He, the Son of God, reflects on His heavenly Mother the glory, the majesty and the dominion of His kingship, for, having been associated to the King of Martyrs in the ... work of human Redemption as Mother and cooperator, she remains forever associated to Him, with a practically unlimited power, in the distribution of the graces which flow from the Redemption. Jesus is King throughout all eternity by nature and by right of conquest: through Him, with Him, and subordinate to Him, Mary is Queen by grace, by divine relationship, by right of conquest, and by singular choice [of the Father]"
Maybe there's a good explanation for this omission. If not, I'd amend the Creed to include such a Marian reference tomorrow!
