Our Immculate Mother was always in prophetic visions. The great prophets: Elias and Elisseus, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezechiel, Daniel and the twelve minor ones: Osee, Joel, Amos, Abdias Jonas, Michaes, Nahum, Habacuc, Sofonias, Aggeus, Zacharias and Malachias, followed by David, Moses and John the Baptist - all of them were longing for the Messiah born of virgin mother. People of Israel were constantly asking God together with them: "Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain the just: let the earth be opened, and bud forth a saviour: "(Isa 45, 8). Mary was 'the earth'!
Mary brought forth, fed and raised Jesus Our Redeemer. The Prophets were severely persecuted by the Jews, as St. Stephen said to them: "Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? " (Acts 7, 52). Mary was predestined by God to suffer even more according to prophecy: "And Simeon blessed them, and said to Mary his mother: Behold this child is set for the fall, and for the resurrection of many in Israel, and for a sign which shall be contradicted; And thy own soul a sword shall pierce, that, out of many hearts, thoughts may be revealed." (Luke 2, 34.35). She was long awaited by Prophets, and shared all their suffering. She IS their Queen. God instructed His Prophets to describe Immaculate Mother with more and more detail to make us venerate the Queen of Prophets. Let us not be discouraged by difficulties, let us be patient in adversity with the help of Our Lady: "every creature groaneth and travaileth in pain " (Rom, 8.22)
