The Heart of Mary

We Claretian Missionaries are formally named “Sons of the Heart of Mary” (Cordis Mariae Filius = C.M.F.). The various pietas always tug at my heart. Mary’s heart was pierced with a sword as she watched her son Jesus suffer and die on the cross. How many mothers in the world have indescribable pain because their children suffer?

Let us pray for healing grace for these women and their children.


  1. Love your new spot on the Interwebs Fr. Art.!
    We are so very fortunate to have Fr Ralph Berg attend our legion of Mary meetings and visit our home bound community.
    Hugs from p town .

    Right now I think of all the mothers dealing with two “epidemics”: Syrian mothers, whose children are dying of exposure to cold in Syria because they cannot find shelter from the violence, and anxious mothers in a growing number of places around the world dealing with their children’s exposure to the coronavirus.

      There are many hearts that are broken that need a response of love and care
