Mater Admirabilis


Title under which Our Lady is especially venerated in the convents of the Religious of the Sacred Heart, who began as a religious institute on the feast of the Presentation of Our Lady in the Temple. A fresco in the Trinita dei Monti, the Sacred Heart convent in Rome, painted by a novice in 1844 and entitled “Mater Admirabilis,” is beautifully enshrined in a chapel, and numbers come to pray there, receiving remarkable heavenly favors. Our Lady is represented as a young girl at school in the Temple and as such has become the model of perfection to pupils in Sacred Heart convents.
