Dr. Fastiggi presents: The Devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary
June 13, 2018 @ 7:30 PM - 9:00 PMFree-will offering
Heart to Heart Apostolate invites you to hear Dr. Robert Fastiggi, Professor of Theology at Sacred Heart Major Seminary speak about the Devotion to the Two Hearts – the Heart of Jesus and Heart of Mary.
Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary are linked
together in the liturgical calendar as well in the messages of Fatima. This talk will
trace the Scriptural roots of devotion to the two Hearts as well as the historical witness
given by various saints such as St. Gertrude the Great (1256–1302), St. Margaret Mary
Alacoque (1647–1690), and St. John Eudes (1601–1680) who stressed the union of the
two Hearts. The presentation will also cover the Jansenist opposition to the adoration
of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the papal defense of such adoration by Pius VI in
1794 and Pius XII in 1956. Attention will also be given to reparation to the Hearts of
Jesus and Mary and the various papal consecrations such as Leo XIII’s consecration of
the world to the Sacred Heart of Jesus in 1899, Pius XII’s consecration of the world to
the Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1942, and St. John Paul II’s consecration of Russia to
the Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1984.
