This beautiful art print is a great gift for a loved one (or yourself) with a special devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
About the Design:
This watercolor print depicts both the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The Sacred Heart of Jesus is a symbol of Christ's immense love for humanity, with a wound in its side and a crown of thorns representing the damage of our sins. A cross is implanted in it, representing the sorrow inflicted during his life and passion. This image was given by Jesus to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, a French nun, in a series of revelations in the 17th century.
The Immaculate Heart of Mary is where St. Luke writes she "kept all these things" (Luke 2:51) she learned as mother of Jesus. It represents her love for Christ and the World, even as it is pierced with a sword (from Simeon's prophecy in Luke 2:35). The image of burning with love, surrounded by roses, is similar to the image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
These two images are very often seen together, especially due to their inclusion on the back of the Miraculous Medal, given to St. Catherine Laboure in the mid-19th century.
