The Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus

In the Novus Ordo calendar, today – the day after the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus – is the Memorial of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Before Mary conceived Our Lord beneath her heart, she conceived Him in her heart.

She began immediately to ponder – contemplate, inwardly gaze at – Him before His birth.

She gazed at Him after His birth.

Did you know that the hearts of mothers and their unborn babies tend to beat with synchronization?

Did you know that mothers and their babies hearts will swiftly synchronize when they smile at each other?

Imagine, for a moment, the smiles of Mary and Jesus.  Try to picture that.

Their hearts beat as one.

Oak, c. 1250-70, French, probably Parisian, in Met, NYC
