While many are familiar with the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the images associated with it, the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is lesser known. John was a priest in France who spent his life preaching about the love of God and encouraging people to love Christ and Mary. In , our Blessed Mother appeared to St. Catherine Laboure and gave her the image of the Miraculous Medal, which features the images of both the hearts of Jesus and Mary.

At Fatima in , Mary told Lucia that she was to remain on Earth to help promote devotion to her Immaculate Heart and the children saw in front of our Blessed Mother a heart surrounded by thorns. He repeated this in the year , entrusting the world to Mary for the new millennium. According to the Catholic News Agency , The main difference between the devotions to the hearts of Jesus and Mary is that the one concerned with Jesus emphasizes his divine heart as being full of love for mankind, but with this love for the most part being ignored or rejected, while devotion to Mary’s heart is essentially concerned with the love that her heart has for Jesus, for God.

Therefore, it is not an end in itself, so the love of her heart is meant to be a model for the way we should love God. The fact that her heart is immaculate, that 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. Honoring Mary’s Immaculate Heart is really just another way of honoring Mary as the person who was chosen to be the Mother of God, recognizing her extraordinary holiness and the immense love she bestowed on Jesus as his mother, the person who was called to share in and co-operate in his redemptive sufferings.

Wikimedia CommonsA depiction of the death of the shieldmaiden Hervor, as described in the Poetic Edda. In a culture so closely associated with violence and bloodshed the Viking version of heaven is an endless battle where the slaughtered are pieced back together to feast before doing it all again the next day , it is no surprise that even the women — or shieldmaidens — have come down through history as fierce warriors. The shieldmaiden Hervor came from a long and impressive line of male warriors and berserkers — but she never knew any of them, because her father died in battle before she was born.

Hervor wanted that sword. She felt it was her birthright. Legend had it that her father took Tyrfing to his grave; it had been decided on his death that the weapon was too dangerous for the world. He warned her not to take the sword, saying it spelled ruin for all who wielded it. In the end, she walked away with the sword and wielded it with no problems for the rest of her days.

The issues came when she passed Tyrfing on to her sons — proving that all the sword needed was a stern shieldmaiden at the helm.
