In our Schoenstatt Shrine, I have always experienced the Blessed Mother as a living Sursum corda. She always invites me to lift up my heart to the Triune God. In her beautiful image, she points out to her Divine Son. I feel her eyes always looking at me, personally, with tender and merciful love. When I come to her with my misery, my sinfulness, and loaded with guilt, she assures me, the mercy and love of God are greater than my smallness and misery. In the Covenant of Love, she invites me to be more like her, to change my ways, to aspire for holiness every day, that is, doing what pleases God, to become a living Sursum corda for others in my surroundings.
