Mary Queen of Heaven - Jeremiah


Does the condemnation of the worship of the Queen of Heaven in Jeremiah have a connection with Catholic devotion to Mary ?

Answer: No, but notice below how and why Satan seems to be doing everything he can to prevent us from following Jesus’ example of honoring Mary.


Jeremiah 7:18
“The children gather wood, their fathers light the fire, and the women knead dough to make cakes for the queen of heaven, while libations are poured out to strange gods”

Jeremiah 44:17
“…we will burn incense to the queen of heaven and pour out libations to her”

Offering sacrifice such as the cakes mentioned above or the burning of incense are forms of worship.  And Jeremiah rightly condemned all idolatry, including the worship of the false Queen of Heaven Ishtar.

And the Catholic Church clearly condemns the worship of Mary.

False Queen of Heaven Ishtar
The queen Jeremiah was referring to is identified as the Assyro-Babylonian Ishtar [Greek: Ἀστάρτη, “Astártē”], goddess of fertility (cf. 1 Sm 31:10; 1 Kgs 11:5, 2 Kgs 21:37).  Cakes shaped like stars (Ishtar was identified with the planet Venus) were offered in her honor. [From notes in NAB]

We must remember that Satan was present and witnessed the curse and prophesy of Genesis 3:15

Genesis 3:15
“I  [God] will put enmity between you [Satan] and the woman, and between your offspring and hers”

Satan knew that the Woman of this prophesy would oppose him completely (by the grace of God) and be his biggest opponent among human beings. (Jesus is a Divine Being with a human nature.)  So, it should not be surprising that Satan, who is the father of lies, John 8:44, would want to set up a false Queen of Heaven to confuse people so that they didn’t recognize Mary as the true Queen of Heaven.

A Counterfeit Points to the Existence of an Original

A counterfeit offers testimony or evidence that there is an original from which it was made.  A counterfeit $50 bill suggests that somewhere there really is an actual legitimate $50 bill. Conversely, no one makes a counterfeit USA  $3 bill for the same reason 
(except for my cousin Earnest who is doing 10 to 20 years behind bars at Sing Sing.  I told him not to bleach those $5 bills.)


Satan no doubt delights in the proliferation of the belief in so many false gods.  These false gods do not in any way disprove the existence of the One True God. On the contrary, while they do not give absolute proof that there is a True God they tend to suggest that there is a True One from which they where copied and distorted.  I think one of Satan's plans is that he knows many people will be overwhelmed with all the false gods and all the false versions of Christianity that they will give up searching for the true one.  Similarly, from a false Queen of Heaven we can deduce that there is a good chance that there is a true Queen of Heaven.



Does the fact that some Old Testament Queen Mothers were immoral mean that this title is inappropriate for Jesus’ Mother?


Solomon is the “son of David” and he acted very immorally.  See 1 Kings 11 below.  Yet, Jesus redeems that title and is honored as the “Son of David.”  And, Mary is a venerable Queen Mother, the Queen of Heaven.

1 Kings 11:1-13
“King Solomon loved many foreign women besides the daughter of Pharaoh (Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians, and Hittites),  from nations with which the LORD had forbidden the Israelites to intermarry, “because,” he said, “they will turn your hearts to their gods.” ...  He had 700 wives of princely rank and 300 concubines, and his wives turned his heart. When Solomon was old his wives had turned his heart to strange gods, and his heart was not entirely with the LORD, his God, as the heart of his father David had been.  By adoring Astarte, the goddess of the Sidonians, and Milcom, the idol of the Ammonites, Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD ...  He did the same for all his foreign wives who burned incense and sacrificed to their gods.”
