The Immaculate Heart:
The symbol of the Immaculate Heart , sometimes with a sword piercing it, is in reference to Simeon's prophecy in St. Luke, Chapter 32, Verse 35:
And thine own soul a sword shall pierce, that out of many hearts, thoughts may be revealed.
Other times the Lily replaces the Sword, as it does here.
The Sword is for sorrow, the Lily for purity and joy. Long ago, a circle of thorns used to replace the roses.
"The Spirit too helps us in our weakness, for we do not know how to pray as we ought; but the Spirit himself makes intercession for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in speech." Romans8:26 www.pauline.org
