Immaculate Heart of Mary

Immaculate Heart of Mary by C. Bosseron Chambers

As a counterpart to the feast of the Sacred Heart, which we celebrated yesterday, today the church celebrates the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. This incredible piece of artwork was originally created by C. Bosseron Chambers, an American who lived between 1882 and 1941. It was created with hundreds of pictures of the Virgin Mary, a collage done with extreme precision and thought. Of course you have to enlarge it to see the detail and the individual images of the Blessed Mother.
Most Holy Mother of God, you who carried Jesus close to your heart, and then saw your heart being broken when he was tortured, crucified and killed, we ask you to keep our hearts close to you and to Your Son. Remind us to love one another as Jesus encouraged us to do, to do the simple things in life with a lot of  love. Remind us to imitate your example of unconditional love towards everyone around us. Encourage also to forgive those who hurt us, as we ask for forgiveness for any hurt we may have caused.  AMEN.
