That our heart,
close to God,
may be purified
more and more
until the day we
are granted
eternal repose.

Could "repose" be
depicted any more
beautifully than
by this image of
the love between
Creator and creature?

Blessed are those who weep
on earth
for they shall be comforted
in heaven.

Heart of Mary, Inseparable from the Heart of Jesus, pray for us.
With this card, I include a thought shared by our godson, Joshua Joseph:
"... never noticed until today that the sword was piercing BOTH hearts at the same time. It reminded me of an experience God allowed me to have several years ago of the intense Love of Jesus for Mother Mary, and Mother Mary for Jesus, not a love that I could ever describe but the word that comes closest is complete. In addition to actually "feeling" the love that could not be contained, He allowed me to see a sword piercing both hearts and when one moved, the other bled a little so each experienced the other's Pain and vis versa. I believe they both love us, with as much Love. Mother Mary once spoke these words to me...'Your tears are my tears, your joys my joys.'"

Hearts of Jesus and Mary,
cover me with
your shadow.
