Alleanza dei cuori di Gesù e Maria
"Covenant of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary"...
As the Father chose Mary to be the Mother of his son, Jesus Christ, it is also predestined that we are all blessed to be born in grace of the flesh and blood of our own perfect Mothers. This image conceived together of the consummate Mother and Son, gives us cause to realize the immaculate love of the “Two Hearts”. Stepping out of my comfort zone, I combined two of my most reverent images from Italy to form one exemplary heart. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary are mentioned in the New Testament. Luke 2:19: "Mary kept all these things pondering them in her heart", and Luke 2:51: "His Mother kept all these things carefully in Her Heart". John 7:38 refers to the heart of Jesus: "From His Heart will flow rivers of living water." From the 2nd century onward, according to the Venerable Pope Pius XII, saints and Church Fathers have referred to the Two Hearts.
In devotions, prayers by Saint Maximillian Kolbe were built on the theme of "Jesus through Mary"; also, the messages of Our Lady of Fátima stated that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be honored together with the Heart of Mary. Saint Jacinta Marto, one of the three children of the Our Lady of Fátima apparitions, discussed the Hearts of Jesus and Mary with a then 12-year-old cousin Lúcia dos Santos:
“When you are to say this, don't go and hide. Tell everybody that God grants us graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary; that people are to ask Her for them; and that the Heart of Jesus wants the Immaculate Heart of Mary to be venerated at His side. Tell them also to pray to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for peace, since God entrusted it to Her.”
