SOME BACKGROUND ON THE IMMACULATE HEART DEVOTION

Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary began as early as the twelfth century. During the seventeenth century in France, St. John Eudes popularised this devotion along with that to the Sacred Heart. St. Luke’s Gospel twice mentions that Mary ‘kept all these things in her heart’, pondering the word of God. Mary shows us how to listen to the words the Holy Spirit speaks to us in the depths of our hearts, and how to respond in faith.
