Overview of the City of God Chaplet
"The sixth, sardius." This stone is transparent, and because it at the same time flashes like the clear flame of a fire, it is the symbol of the flame of divine love, which incessantly burns in the Queen of heaven, for there is no cessation nor diminution of that conflagration of love in her bosom. From the very moment of her Conception, which was the time and place of its beginning, it continued to grow, and now, having reached that highest state of exaltation, which ever can fall to the lot of a creature, it burns and shall burn still brighter through all the eternities. This includes her privilege of distributing the influence, the love and the gifts of the Holy Ghost to those who ask in her name." -Mary of Agreda, Mystical City of God, paragraph 290, Book I, Chapter XIX.
In His infinite mercy, The Most High endowed most holy Mary with extraordinary graces and virtues, typified in the twelve foundations of the City of God. This august act is described in the twenty first chapter of the Apocaplyse and further elucidated in Mary of Agreda's Mystical City of God. What we learn from these sublime texts is that in addition to granting the Mother of the Incarnate Word great spiritual treasures, The Most High also granted the Mother humanity the distinct privilege of bestowing these same gifts upon her children who ask for them.
Therefore, in this chaplet we call upon the powerful and efficacious intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary and ask Her to share with us the graces and virtues that prepared Her for Her Immaculate Conception, namely those riches that comprise the twelve foundations of the City of God.
