Transcript of Marian Devotions

Mary, Queen of All Hearts
Mary, Queen of All Hearts
A pious woman named Emma Curotte was born to protestant parents and was the youngest of nine. She was baptized Catholic because of her grandfather and her family then moved to Quebec. When she grew older, she and a local priest were inspired to build a tiny chapel and have a statue of Mary shipped by train to the site. After reflecting at the site, Emma composed a prayer to Mary, Queen of All Hearts. She consulted with the Magisterium and made Mary known by this title. This devotion to Mary highlights the power of her ability to work in each and everybody's hearts. Her love for the world's people is unconditional and never-ending. Mary, Queen of All Hearts yearns to help everyone become the best version of themselves, something we should all strive for.
Our Lady Of Fatima
Our Lady Of Fatima
Our Lady Of Guadalupe
Juan Diego, a lowly Aztec Indian living in Mexico was out one day in 1531. All of a sudden, Our Lady appears to him. She gives him a message telling him she wishes to build a temple here, in North America, for all who bear witness to her love and compassion. She also gives him a reassuring that she will be with us and help us through the process. To prove she was present, she caused a picture of herself to appear on Juan Diego's cloak, and preserves that image to this day, even though it should have faded many centuries ago.
Our Lady of Guadalupe
Our Lady of Fatima appeared to three portuguese children 6 times between May 13 and October 13, 1917. She came to a small village that had remained strong in their catholic faith even under persecution. She promised the children a world of peace if they listened to the commands of God. She told them war was the punishment for sin. This message was a warning, a piece of advice, and a prophesy. She then told the children to bring the village together to see a miracle preformed by God so they would believe the apparitions. The sun then began to dance in front of the witnesses, and even unbelievers knelt down in worship and praise. The significance of the message is to worn us of the horrible things to come if we do not turn from the ways of sin. However, it is also a message of advice, telling us how to repent and turn back to God, and giving us hope that it is possible.

Our Lady of Lourdes
Our Lady of Lourdes
The Blessed Virgin Mary chose a humble, young, uneducated girl named St. Bernadette Soubirous to convey her new message which strained her maternal concern for us to repent to the world. In 1858, the Holy Mother appeared to this young girl in a grotto in France. From February to July, Our Lady appeared 18 times offering messages of hope and love, while also warning her of the evils of sin and how they can harm this wonderful world. She emphasized the need for the world to return to God's loving presence through prayer, reconciliation, and asking for the forgiveness of sins. Mary did not promise St. Bernadette happiness on Earth, but rather a promise of the good things to come in heaven, something we should all strive for.
