Marian Devotion

Immaculate Heart of Mary

Throughout the centuries, the faithful have cultivated a devotion to Mary, the Mother of Jesus. Here are some of the more popular devotions to Mary.

True Devotion to Mary: St. Louis de Montfort was a French priest and Saint from the early 18th Century. He wrote a number of books, the most popular of which is True Devotion to Mary. He preached “total consecration to Jesus Christ through Mary”, and the devotion to Mary that he inspired hundreds of years ago is still popular today.

Name of Mary: According to the New Advent Encyclopedia, “We venerate the name of Mary because it belongs to her who is the Mother of God, the holiest of creatures, the Queen of heaven and earth, the Mother of Mercy. The object of the feast is the Holy Virgin bearing the name of Mirjam (Mary); the feast commemorates all the privileges given to Mary by God and all the graces we have received through her intercession and mediation.” Read more.

    Estimados lectores, a mi me ocurrio algo muy curioso pero bello y significativo.
    Hace ya varios años yo siempre alumbraba a la Virgen Maria y le llevaba flores en la casa, en el mes de Mayo. Por motivo fuera de mi, yo olvide todo el mes y fue el ultimo dia de mayo, cuando recorde hacerle lo que yo acostumbraba ofrecerle a la Virgen. Compre una velita larga de una farmacia y me fui a casa donde la alumbre.
    A las 3 de la madrugada cuando desperte, vi una forma diferente como se quemaba la vela. Al despertar era una pequeña imaginen de la Virgen que se habia formada con el rostro de su hijo Jesus……esto para mi fue maravilloso y me puse muy nerviosa y feliz a la vez….No se ustedes que piensan al respecto?, sera una aparicion mas de la Virgen, para que no la olvide nunca?….. .Le pedi salud para amigos y una amiga me la pidio prestada y espero la conserve pues no la he visto mas, solo tengo fotos…Saludos

    Dear readers, it occurred to me something very strange but beautiful and meaningful.
    Several years ago I always shone on the Virgin Mary and brought flowers in the house, in the month of May. For reasons beyond me, I forget all month and was the last day of May, when I remembered what I used to ask the Virgin offer. Buy a candle longer a pharmacy and went home where the alum.
    At 3 in the morning when I awoke, I saw a different shape as the candle burned. To imagine waking up was a little of the Virgin which had formed with the face of his son Jesus …… this to me was wonderful and I was very nervous and happy at the same time …. you do not think about it?, will be one more appearance of the Virgin, so you will not ever forget ?….. The Virgin did wonders for the health of family and friends. The Virgin must be in the house of a friend who borrowed me to ask about the health of the child and I hope my friend has the image at home. I have not seen more than my Virgin with his beloved son Jesus, only I have pictures … Greetings
