The Immaculate Heart of Mary is this Saturday, and we are here to share a few simple ways to honor this special feast day. The purity of her heart is manifested in her "yes" to all God asked her to do. She experienced great joys and sadness throughout her life, but never once lost faith and always pursued love in her heart. Let her heart serve as a prime example of everlasting love and faith.
We gathered four simple ways that you can honor Mary and her heart this year!
Listen and pray with this song by Copeland
Pull up your Spotify or YouTube account and listen to In Her Arms You Will Never Starve by Copeland. Let the beautiful lyrics ring truth to you and your heart. Pray to Mary and ask her to be with you.
You can also worship Mary through songs by listening to our Immaculate Heart of Mary playlist on Spotify.
Pray to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
O Immaculate Heart of Mary, full of goodness, show your love towards us. Let the flame of your heart, O Mary, descend on all people. We love you immensely. Impress true love in our hearts so that we have a continuous desire for your Son.
O Mary, gentle and humble of heart, teach us to be more like you - entirely oriented to your Son’s own heart. Give us, by means of your Immaculate Heart, spiritual health. Let us always see the goodness of your motherly heart and may we be converted by means of the flame of your heart.
You can download a free copy of the prayer here. Put this on the fridge or on your bathroom mirror as a reminder to pray daily!

Honor Mary in your home
There are so many fun and creative ways to bring Mary into your home. Find an image of Mary (we have a beautiful high quality print here!) and display her in a place of honor in your home. Build a Marian Garden and take care of the flowers so they can nourish and grow. Buy a Mary statue to put in your yard. Whenever you cross paths with the Marian-decor in (or outside) of your home, stop and say a prayer to her.
