IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY 11-INCH STATUE
Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary grew in parallel, but to a lesser degree, with devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. St. John Eudes spoke tirelessly about these two hearts in the 1600's and after Our Lady's apparition to St. Catherine Labouré in 1830 this devotion became really well known. The fact that Mary's heart is immaculate, that it is sinless, means that she is the only fully human person who is able to really love God in the way that He should be loved. We look to Mary as our intermediary in the process of our own consecration to God. This beautifully hand-painted statue is made of resin.
