Crown him and Crown him Lord of All!: Sermon for the Feast of the Blessed Virgin


This Sunday we are celebrating the Feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary (usually the 15th August). Anglicans often find it hard to articulate why Mary is so important, but I say there are three good reasons.

  1. Mary’s faith
  2. Mary was an awesome prophet
  3. If Mary is Queen of anything at all… that is only because we believe that Jesus is King and Lord of everything in heaven and earth.

Sunday 13th August – Feast of the BVM

And a little musical something from the end of mass here in Newcastle (perhaps sung slightly less elegantly).

All peace and good,
Fr Thomas
