TheImmaculate Heart of Maryis adevotionalname used to refer to the interior life of theBlessed Virgin Mary, her joys and sorrows, her virtues and hidden perfections, and, above all, her virginal love forGod the Father, her maternal love for her sonJesus, and her compassionate love for all persons.The consideration of Mary's interior life and the beauties of her soul, without any thought of her physical heart, does not constitute the traditional devotion; still less does it consist in the consideration of the heart of Mary merely as a part of her virginal body. The two elements are essential to the devotion, just as, according toRoman body are necessary to the constitution of man. In 1855 theMass of the Most Pure Heartformally became a part of Catholic practice.
Eastern Catholic Churchesoccasionally utilize the image, devotion, and theology associated with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. However, this is a cause of some controversy, some seeing it as a form ofliturgical latinisation. The Roman Catholic view is based onMariology, as exemplified byPope John Paul II's Apostolic LetterRosarium Virginis Mariaewhich builds on thetotal Marian devotionpioneered byLouis de Montfort.
Traditionally, the heart is depicted pierced with seven wounds or swords, in homage to theseven dolors of Mary. Also, roses or another type of flower may be wrapped around the heart.
