Prayer to Mary Queen of Peace
Most holy and immaculate Virgin, Mother of Jesus and our loving Mother, being his Mother, you shared in His universal kingship. The prophets and angels proclaimed Him King of peace. With loving fervour in our hearts we salute and honor you as Queen of peace.
We pray that your intercession may protect us and all people from hated and discord, and direct our hearts into the ways of peace and justice which your Son taught and exemplified. We ask your maternal care for our Holy Father who works to reconcile the nations in peace. We seek your guidance for our Head of Stater and other leaders as they strive for world peace.
Glorious Queen of peace, grant us peace in our hearts, harmony in our families and concord throughout the world. Immaculate Mother, as patroness of our beloved country, watch over us and protect us with your motherly love.
Queen of Peace, is one of the titles given to Mary. In her image, as Queen of Peace, she is often shown holding a dove in one hand and an olive branch in the other.
This rosary is dedicated to Mary Queen of Peace.
Because of it’s calm tone, we chose a soft pink to represent the peace Mary brings to us as we pray the rosary. The gentle color baguettes are machine cut Czech glass. They are spaced with German crystal. The symbolism in the hand painted Paters is twofold. The inner line around the bead has the appearance of the wings of a bird in flight. This represents the dove of Peace. The outer edges of the band are golden and represent Mary’s crown as Queen of Peace. In bronze, a Marian center and linear crucifix complete this rosary which measures 19”.

Pope's Prayer to Mary for World Peace
At Piazza di Spagna in Rome
ROME, DEC. 8, 2003 (Zenit.org).- Here is a translation of John Paul II's prayer to Mary for peace in the world, which he recited at Piazza di Spagna in the evening, on the solemnity of her Immaculate Conception.
1. Queen of Peace, pray for us!
On the feast of your Immaculate Conception,
I come to venerate you, O Mary,
at the foot of this effigy, which from Piazza di Spagna
allows your maternal gaze to extend over this ancient, and for me very dear, city of Rome.
I have come here, this evening, to render you the homage of my sincere devotion.
It is a gesture in which I am joined in this Piazza by innumerable Romans,
whose affection has always accompanied me
in all the years of my service to the See of Peter.
I am here with them to start on the path
toward the one hundred fiftieth anniversary
of the dogma that we celebrate today with filial joy.
2. Queen of Peace, pray for us!
We turn our gaze to you with intense trepidation,
we take recourse to you with insistent trust
in these times marked by not a few uncertainties and fears
over the present and future fate of our planet.
To you, the first of humanity redeemed by Christ,
finally liberated from the slavery of evil and sin,
we raise a heartfelt and confident supplication:
Listen to the cry of pain of the victims of war
and of so many forms of violence
that bloody the earth.
Dispel the darkness of sadness and solitude,
of hatred and vengeance,
Open the minds and hearts of all to trust and forgiveness!
3. Queen of Peace, pray for us!
Mother of mercy and of hope,
obtain for the men and women of the third millennium
the precious gift of peace:
peace in hearts and in families,
in communities and among peoples;
peace especially for those nations
where every day combating and dying continue.
Help every human being, and all races and cultures,
to encounter and accept Jesus,
who came on earth in the mystery of Christmas
to give us "his" peace.
Mary, Queen of Peace,
give us Christ, true peace of the world!
