The Fifth Glorious Mysteries
The Coronation of The Blessed Virgin Mary as Queen of Heaven.
 Mary is crowned queen of Heaven and earth.
Scripture

"Be faithful unto death and I will give thee the Crown of Life"
Revelation 2:10.
 A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.
Revelation 12:1-3, 4-5

“Since the great Virgin Mary was raised to the dignity of Mother of   the King of Kings, the Church justly honours her and wishes that she be honoured with the  glorious title of Queen”
Saint Alphonsus Maria de Liguori,

"Regina Angelorum! Queen of the Angels! What a foretaste of heaven it is to think thus of Mary our mother ceaselessly accompanied by legions of angels!"
-- Pope John XXIII

Saint St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori
"For if we are bidden to honor carnal fathers and mothers, how much more the spiritual?...If this virtue of charity has been overlooked, a man will lose any fruit of salvation in any good he may do."
- Pope Saint Gregory VII (1020 - 1085)

“When she became Mother of the Creator, she truly became Queen of every creature.”
 St. John Damascene
crucifix
'If the human mind, says St. Bernard, cannot attain to comprehend the immense glory which God has prepared in heaven for those who have loved him on earth, as the apostle declares, who will ever attain to comprehend what he has prepared for her who bore him? What glory did he prepare for his beloved mother, he who on earth loved her more than all men; who, even from the first moment of her creation, loved her more than all men and angels united! Justly, then, does the holy Church say that Mary having loved God more than all the angels, she has been exalted above all the angels, in heaven.'
St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori
crucifix
"Just as Mary surpassed in grace all others on earth, so also in heaven is her glory unique. If eye has not seen or ear heard or the human heart conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him (1 Corinthians 2:9), who can express what He has prepared for the woman who gave Him birth and who loved Him, as everyone knows, more than anyone else?"
St. Bernard of Clairvaux

"No one has access to the Almighty as His mother has; none has merit such as hers. Her Son will deny her nothing that she asks; and herein lies her power. While she defends the Church, neither height nor depth, neither men nor evil spirits, neither great monarchs, nor craft of man, nor popular violence, can avail to harm us; for human life is short, but Mary reigns above, a Queen forever."
John Henry Cardinal Newman

“Let the entire body of the faithful pour forth persevering prayer to the Mother of God and Mother of men. Let them implore that she who aided the beginnings of the Church by her prayers may now, exalted as she is in heaven above all the saints and angels, intercede with her Son in the fellowship of all the saints. May she do so until all the peoples of the human family, whether they are honored with the name of Christian or whether they still do not know their Savior, are happily gathered together in peace and harmony into the one People of God, for the glory of the Most Holy and Undivided Trinity” (Vatican II, Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, 69).
"Men do not fear a powerful hostile army as the powers of hell fear the name and protection of Mary."
Saint Bonaventure (1221 - 1274)

Mary Queen of Heaven, pray for us!

"No one in the world can change Truth.
 What we can do and should do is to seek truth
 and to serve it when we have found it."

"There are those who seek knowledge for the sake of knowledge; that is curiosity.
There are those who seek knowledge to be known by others; that is vanity.
There are those who seek knowledge in order to serve; that is love."
Saint Bernard of Clairvaux (1091 - 1153)

Glory be to the Father,
and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning,
 is now and ever shall be,
world without end.
 Amen.

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins,
 save us from the fires of hell,
and lead all souls to Heaven,
 especially those in most need of Your Mercy.

The Fourth Glorious Mystery
The Assumption of The Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven.
At the end of her life, Mary is taken body and soul into heaven.

Scripture
Revelation 12:1, 13-14

A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. ... When the dragon [the rebellious angel, the devil] saw that it had been thrown down to the earth, it pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle so that she could fly to her place in the desert, where, far from the serpent, she was taken care of.
crucifix

'Now Mary has left the earth, now she is in heaven. From thence this kind mother looks down upon us, who are still in this valley of tears, compassionates us, and promises us her support if we wish for it.'
St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori

'The holy Church teaches us, in the collect of the Mass for the Vigil of the Assumption, that the divine mother has been removed from this earth that she might intercede for us with God, in sure confidence of being graciously heard. Hence Mary is named by St. Justinian, Arbitress: "Sequestra."'
St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori
crucifix
It was fitting that she, who had kept her virginity intact in childbirth, should keep her own body free from all corruption even after death. It was fitting that she, who had carried the Creator as a child at her breast, should dwell in the divine tabernacles. It was fitting that the spouse, whom the Father had taken to himself, should live in the divine mansions. It was fitting that she, who had seen her Son upon the cross and who had thereby received into her heart the sword of sorrow which she had escaped when giving birth to him, should look upon him as he sits with the Father. It was fitting that God’s Mother should possess what belongs to her Son, and that she should be honored by every creature as the Mother and as the handmaid of God.
St. John Damascene, The Dormition of Mary
crucifix
But God was pleased that Mary should in all things resemble Jesus; and as the Son died, it was becoming that the Mother should also die; because, moreover, He wished to give the just an example of the precious death prepared for them, He willed that even the most Blessed Virgin should die, but by a sweet and happy death.
St. Alphonsus Liguori, On The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Almighty and eternal God, who hast assumed the body and soul of the Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of Thy Son, to celestial glory: grant, we beseech Thee, that always minded toward heavenly things, we may be sharers of the same glory.
Collect of the Assumption, Missale Romanum 1962
crucifix
