UNBORN WORD of the day


Redemption took shape beneath the Heart of Mary

This Saturday June 16 is the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary – in preparation for this great feast day I thought it would be nice to quote John Paul the Great.

“Not only is the dignity of this Motherhood unique and unrepeatable in the history of the human race, but Mary’s participation, due to this Maternity, in God’s plan for man’s salvation through the mystery of the Redemption is also unique in profundity and range of action.


We can say that the mystery of the Redemption took shape beneath the heart of the Virgin of Nazareth when she pronounced her ‘fiat’.
From then on, under the special influence of the Holy Spirit, this heart, the heart of both a virgin and a mother, has always followed the work of her Son and has gone out to all those whom Christ has embraced and continues to embrace with inexhaustible love.”

Redemptor hominis 22

Jesus, before birth You rested near Your mother’s faithful heart. Bless the unborn and their parents.
