Heart of Mary Heart of the Church
By Bertrand de Margerie, S.J.
This short work on the heart of Mary attempts to link a subject dear to many Catholics, particular to the pilgrims of Fatima, with the understanding of the mission of Mary in the Church: to be the heart of the Mystical Body of Christ. Without the Church, we would not know Mary; without a knowledge of Mary, our understanding of the mystery of the Church is incomplete. Heart of Mary, Heart of the Church will deepen the reader's knowledge of both.
“What is there sweeter than the Mother of my God? She has captivated my spirit, she reigns over my tongue, day and night her image is before me.”
-St. John Damascene
