My Journey to God

The Heart of Our Lady

At the Conception of Our Lord
it was the heart of Our Lady
that filled with joy while
her womb filled with the Son.

At the Epiphany of Our Lord
it was in the heart of Our Lady
that all these events were pondered
and discovered to be treasures.

In the citadel of Our Lord
it was the heart of Our Lady
that was wounded by
allowing her Son to leave.

At the death of Our Lord,
it was the heart of Our Lady
that broke when the Lord’s
body was crushed for our sins.

At the empty tomb of Our Lord
it was the heart of Our Lady
that filled with quiet joy when
she knew her Son was risen.
