“Mondays with Mary” – 10 Quotes on the Immaculate Heart of Mary

This past Saturday the Roman lung of the Catholic Church celebrated the great Memorial of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The Saturday devotion follows the Friday devotion of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Although St. John Eudes is known as one of the “Saints of the Sacred Heart”, he also popularized the devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary during his time. To learn more about this devotion, check out my blog post from a few years ago.

For today’s “Mondays with Mary”, here are 10 quotes about the Immaculate Heart of Mary for you to pray and meditate with this week –

“Mary, give me your Heart: so beautiful, so pure, so immaculate; your Heart so full of love and humility that I may be able to receive Jesus in the Bread of Life and love Him as you love Him and serve Him in the distressing guise of the poor.” – Saint Teresa of Calcutta

“Be Not Afraid; my Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and your safe page to God.” – Our Lady of Fatima to Saint Lucia

“Sacrifice yourselves for sinners and say many times, especially when you make some sacrifice: ‘O Jesus, it is for Thy love, for the conversion of sinners and in reparation for sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.” – Our Lady of Fatima

“If you put all the love of the mothers into one heart it still would not equal the love of the Heart of Mary for her children.” – Saint Louis de Montfort

“The Immaculate alone has from God the promise of victory over Satan. She seeks souls that will consecrate themselves entirely to her, that will become in her hands forceful instruments for the defeat of Satan and the spread of God’s kingdom.” – Saint Maximilian Kolbe

“May I give you some advice for you to put into practice daily? When your heart makes you feel those low cravings, say slowly to the Immaculate Virgin: Look on me with compassion. Don’t abandon me. Don’t abandon me, my Mother! And recommend this prayer to others.” – Saint Josemaria Escriva

“I want My Church to…put the devotion to this Immaculate Heart beside the devotion to My Sacred Heart.” – Jesus to Saint Lucia

“Tell everybody that God grants graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary” – Saint Jacinta

“Mother, dear, lend me your heart. I look for it each day to pour my troubles into.” – Saint Gemma Galgani
