A Sword shall Pierce your Immaculate Heart

Mary’s heart is mentioned three times in Luke 2: twice when she “ponders” the events unfolding around the child Jesus “in her heart” (verses 19, 51) and once when Simeon prophesies, “thy own soul a sword shall pierce, that, out of many hearts, thoughts may be revealed” (verse 35).

In the 17th century, at the same time as the growing worship of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, St. John Eudes and other Catholics promoted a parallel devotion to Mary’s heart. More recently, in the 20th century Catholic interest in the Heart of Mary, now firmly fixed to the “Immaculate” epithet, was stimulated by the visions of the three children at Fatima, one of whom reported that Mary had told her, “Jesus wants you to make me known and loved. He wants to establish in the world the devotion to my Immaculate Heart.”

16 June 2012 is the memorial of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and this statue is from a chapel in Salamanca.
