Charism

We look to Mary as our Mother and Educator, the one who perfectly demonstrates in her life the free response of the human person to Divine Will.  Sacred Scripture reveals the inner logic of her person and mission, beginning with her total availability: “Behold the handmaid of the Lord.”  This complete act of faith forms in her the message of true wisdom, which she proclaims at the wedding at Cana: “Do whatever he tells you.”  And finally, Our Lord establishes her authority to teach the whole Church from his agony on the Cross: “Behold your mother.”

Regina Mater, as dedicated in name to our “Queen Mother,” has a distinctively Marian character.  We foster childlike love and trust in the Mother of God through prayers, devotions, and prominent display of the Mother Thrice Admirable (“picture of grace”).  Our further goal is to become true Marian personalities: people who are attuned to the wish and will of the Triune God.    This creates an atmosphere of warmth in our community where there is home for everyone.
