Over the weekend I had this one imaginary vision that has really impacted my prayer life. I know it is not good to fixate on images due to the potential for relying on them and the possible demonically influenced ones. But this one really elevated my soul into an appreciation for Our Lord's Sacred Heart and Our Lady's Immaculate Heart.
During prayer, I had this image of myself clothed in a white mantle with gold trim, not unlike Our Lady of Fatima. I was kneeling in prayer in this bright plane, with a white shining cross towering over me. I knew that the Lord was seated there. To my left was Our Lady of Fatima. Her Immaculate Heart beating visibly in her breast, kneeling with her head bowed in prayer. Then my perspective shifted and I was standing with others clothed in white mantles. Our Lady stood amongst us holding a silver platter. She approached me and I placed my beating heart on the platter. Then she looked at it lovingly, held it to her breast, and it ignited with the flames of charity. This she presented as an offering to Our Lord Jesus Christ, clothed in glory and enthroned above us. He took the heart and absorbed it into His own Sacred Heart. Variations of this image have been brought to mind when I’ve been praying lately. The most uplifting was during Mass on Sunday, which was me amongst the multitude as described above. Yet the space we were in was more like a cathedral of white marble with the starry sky overhead. I have this indescribable joy when I’ve meditated on it. What I can take from this imagery is how Our Lady intercedes on our behalf. The heart represents all of my prayers, which she combines with her own love for the Lord and presents to Him as a perfect offering. I believe she is reminding me not to despair but to hold fast to my devotion to her. At the time I didn't realize it then, but in past week since then a devotion to the Sacred Heart has really erupted within me. I've been just fixated on Christ's love and keep picturing my own heart enflamed with this love.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us

"The Heart of Jesus is closer to you when you suffer, than when you are full of joy." - St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

Put not your trust in princes: In the children of men, in whom there is no salvation. - Ps. 145:2-3

"For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables." - 2 Timothy 4:3-4
