I will greatly rejoice in the Lord my soul shall exult in my God; for he has covered me with the garment of salvation, he has covered me with the robe of righteousness…
(Isaiah 61:9-10)

Today we celebrate the memorial of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary, a day we recall and reflect on the interior life of the Blessed Virgin Mary, her joys and sorrows, her virtues and hidden perfections and, above all, her love for God, and her compassionate love for us, her children. Mary’s heart was essentially concerned with the love that her heart has for Jesus, for God- a love that made her say yes to God, a love that made her totally submit to His will. This love her heart had is meant to be a model for the way we should love God. We are called to practice the virtues of this Immaculate Heart. The fact that her heart is immaculate, that is sinless, means that she is the only fully human person who is able to really love
God in the way that he should be loved.

Blessed is the Virgin Mary, who kept the word of God, and pondered it in her heart.
(Gospel Acclamation)

  So let us honor Mary’s Immaculate Heart, she is the person who was chosen to be the Mother of God and we his adopted ones, let us recognize her extraordinary holiness and the immense love she bestowed on Jesus as his mother, and let us imitate her virtues, that in doing so we may remain faithful to our calling and become fit for the kingdom of God.
