The thoughts of many hearts may be revealed

“Behold, this child is destined for the fall and rise of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be contradicted and you yourself a sword will pierce so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.” (LK 2: 34-35) 

God, Who is love and Who gave Himself for our salvation, knows that Heaven’s economy is very simple: heart for heart, life for life. Our Lady’s heart “a sword will pierce so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed,” and Our Lord’s “is destined for the fall and rise of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be contradicted.” On a micro scale, it happens every day within parents who give their lives to protect their children and to help them grow.  

“Blessed are you, O Virgin Mary; without dying you won the martyr’s crown beneath the Cross of the Lord.” (Gospel Acclamation)
