The Blessed Mother & the Moon in the book of Revelation

In the book of Revelation, the "moon" is said to be under the Blessed Mother's feet, because the moon is not the source of the light; instead, the moon gives no light of its own, but rather, the moon reflects the light of the sun.

In this case, the sun is Christ, and the moon is the blessed mother, who serves to reflect the light of "the sun" - her son; Christ, the "light of the world."

The Blessed Mother is the perfect reflection of Christ, the light of the world, in that she guides people to Him.
