14 inch tall Immaculate Heart of Mary in full color is cast in resin and stone and hand painted by the artists of Joseph Studios.
Devotion to Mary's Immaculate Heart is one of the most widely spread devotions in the world. It is deeply Scriptural is it's basis and for all mankind, it is a symbol of love. In the Book of Deuteronomy we are told, "You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, and with all your soul and with all your strength." (Dt. 6:5) and in this Mary is our perfect example.
In the Gospel of Luke "Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, 'Look, he is destined for the fall and rise of many in Israel, destined to be a sign that is opposed--and a sword will pierce your soul too--so that the secret thoughts of many may be laid bare.'"
