4:00 O Sanctissima
Many writers in the Church have spoken of the “Heart” of Mary, especially in conjunctions with the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Devotion increased after Mary’s appearances in 1830 to St. Catherine in France and in 1917 to the children at Fatima.
The vision of the miraculous medal given to St. Catherine contained Mary’s heart pierced as referenced in Luke 2:35. It was at Fatima that Mary said God wished to establish in the world devotion to her “Immaculate Heart,” and when she asked that Russia be consecrated to her “Immaculate Heart.”
In 1942, on the twenty-fifth anniversary of Mary’s appearances at Fatima, Pope Pius XX II consecrated the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The feast day is now celebrated on the Saturday following the Sacred Heart of Jesus. On that day the opening liturgical prayer is:
God prepared the heart of Mary as a fitting home to the Holy Spirit. May we, his chosen people, become temples of His glory. We ask Mary to help us – her spiritual children, so dear to her heart, to stay ever united in friendship with her Son and never separate ourselves by sin.
