Pope Pius XII wrote at the end of his encyclical on the Mystical Body:

We have without hesitation consecrated all mankind to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. May she, the most holy Mother of all members of Christ, radiant now, body and soul in heaven, and gloriously reigning with her Son, earnestly implore of Him, that mighty streams of grace may ceaselessly flow from the majestic Head upon all members of the Mystical Body.

Scriptural Rosary Meditation on the Fifth Glorious Mystery: The Coronation of Mary as Queen of Heaven and Earth+THE CORONATION OF MARY

Mary is crowned Queen of the angels and saints in heaven. Queen of the Holy Rosary, Queen of Peace, Queen of Apostles, Queen of Prophets. How many titles have been given to the Mother of the Incarnation of the Word! Not only is she proclaimed as the new Eve, and Mother of the Church, she is also given a prominent position in the salvation and redemption of the world. Her soul magnifies the Lord, all nations shall call her blessed. Her glorious coronation in heaven, is our hope

Prayer Intention

Let us offer this mystery then for Mary's intentions. Her intercession, her constant appearances, her role as Mediatrix of graces. Let us pray that her efforts on our behalf, her efforts to lead all her children back to her Son, will not be impeded. We pray also, to God, The Father, in thanksgiving for Mary's presence, for her role, for her help. We pray in thanksgiving that she is.
