The Feast of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Today’s memorial of the Immaculate Heart of Mary makes one point very clear: To love with the humility and grace of Mary is to allow your heart to break, and more than once. But such love also enables us to do amazing things for those we love. When we think we’ve done all that we can do for someone, we find resources within ourselves to reach out to them again and again.

When we’re exhausted and spent, we manage to be there for a loved one in need. When we can’t imagine ourselves possessing the abilities to contribute to particular causes or ministries, we surprise ourselves once we get involved. Mary, the Immaculate Heart, invites you and me to step back for a moment, however briefly, to discern the love of God in the midst of our lives, as we cope with the challenges piercing our own hearts.
