Image dessinée par Berthe Petit, à la demande expresse de Jésus : "C'est Mon désir que cette image soit répandue largement et loin, en même temps que l'invocation. Partout où elle sera vénérée, Ma Miséricorde et Mon Amour seront manifestés et la vue de Nos Coeurs, blessés par la même blessure, encouragera les âmes faibles et tièdes à revenir à leur devoir". (Traduit de l'anglais).
Prière de Berthe Petit
Cœur Douloureux et Immaculé de Marie, Demeure Divine et purifiante, enveloppez mon âme de Votre Maternité afin que, toujours fidèle à la voix de Jésus, elle réponde à Son Amour et accomplisse Sa Divine Volonté.
Je veux, Ô ma mère, me souvenir sans cesse de Votre Co-rédemption, afin de vivre dans l'intimité de Votre Cœur, unie en tout au Cœur de Votre Divin Fils.
Rivez-moi à ce Cœur par les Vertus et les Douleurs du Vôtre. Gardez-moi toujours.

Notre-Dame Miraculeuse d'Ollignies
Cœur Douloureux et Immaculé de Marie,
priez pour nous qui avons recours à Vous.
200 jours d'indulgences, Card. van Roey.
Consécration universelle au
Cœur Douloureux et Immaculé de Marie
Ô Notre-Dame, nous Vous en supplions par les mérites de Votre Cœur Douloureux et Immaculé, daignez nous obtenir, ainsi qu'à tous nos frères, la Grâce de croire à l'Amour de Dieu et de Lui vouer un indéfectible attachement, une parfaite soumission, une fidélité sans réserve.
Montrez-nous Votre Cœur percé par le glaive de nos péchés et maintenez-nous sans cesse dans l'horreur du mal et la hantise de la réparation.
Que la pensée de Votre Cœur Immaculé, triomphant de toutes les séductions et ouvert à tous les sacrifices, nous élève au-dessus de nos égoïsmes et de nos médiocrités. Que la flamme de ce foyer brûlant de Charité Divine allume et entretienne en nous un ardent amour pour Dieu et pour nos frères.
Cœur Douloureux et Immaculé de Marie, nous Vous consacrons nos personnes, notre diocèse, toutes les paroisses, tous les prêtres, les familles, la jeunesse, les malades, tous ceux qui souffrent. Nous Vous confions la relève des âmes consacrées et nous implorons de Votre Maternelle Puissance le retour de nos frères égarés.
Ô Reine de l'Univers, daignez Vous servir de Vos enfants pour assurer le Règne de Votre Fils Jésus et le Vôtre sur notre pays et sur le monde entier. Amen.

Berthe Petit, Tertiaire Franciscaine, a eu une vision de Jésus lors d'un pèlerinage en 1910 à Sainte-Anne, en Alsace, lors de laquelle Il lui a dit que sa mission serait la Consécration du monde au Cœur Douloureux et Immaculé de Marie.
Pendant sa jeunesse, elle a eu une autre vision de l'Enfant-Jésus venant vers elle et lui disant : "Tu souffriras toujours, mais Je serai avec toi". (Traduit de l'anglais).
"It is hearts that must be changed. This will be accomplished only by the Devotion proclaimed, explained, preached and recommended everywhere. Recourse to My Mother under the title I wish for her universally, is the last help I shall give before the end of time."
"The Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary":
Book on the Messages from the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary to Berthe Petit on the Devotion to the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, along with a biography of the messenger, Berthe Petit. Jesus states, "Recourse to my Mother under the title I wish for her universally, is the last help I shall give before the end of time." Many black and white photographs. Imprimatur; Nihil Obstat. (136 pages).
The Words of Our Lord to Berthe Petit:
"The title of Immaculate belongs to the whole being of My Mother and not specially to Her Heart. The title flows from my gratuitous gift to the Virgin who was to give me birth. My Mother has acquired from her Heart the title of 'Sorrowful' by sharing generously in all the sufferings of My Heart and My Body from the crib to the cross. There is not one of these Sorrows which did not pierce the Heart of My Mother. Living image of My crucified Body, her virginal flesh bore the invisible marks of My wounds as her Heart felt the Sorrows of My own. Nothing could ever tarnish the incorruptibility of her Immaculate Heart. The title of ‘Sorrowful’ belongs therefore to the Heart of My Mother, and more than any other, this title is dear to Her because it springs from the union of her Heart with Mine in the redemption of humanity. This title has been acquired by her through her full participation in My Calvary, and it precedes the gratuitous title ‘Immaculate’ which My love bestowed upon her by a singular privilege."
The following revelations were made by Our Lord to his spiritual daughter, Berthe Petit:
"The worst calamities which I had predicted are unleashed. The time is now ripe and I wish mankind to turn to the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of My Mother. Let this prayer be uttered by every soul: ‘Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.’ Let this prayer dictated by My Love as a supreme succor be approved and indulgenced, no longer partially and for a small portion of My flock, but for the whole universe, so that it may spread as a refreshing and purifying balm of reparation that will appease My anger. This Devotion to the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of My Mother will restore faith and hope to broken hearts and to ruined families: it will help to repair the destruction: it will sweeten sorrow. It will be a new strength for My Church, bringing souls, not only to confidence in My Heart, but also to abandonment to the Sorrowful Heart of My Mother."
Cardinal Bourne granted, to all those who will devoutly say: ‘Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us’ an indulgence of 200 days each time.
Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary Picture:
"The two Hearts were seen fused together surmounted by the symbolical dove of the Holy Spirit on February 7, 1910, and surmounted by luminous rays of light on the following day. The picture is a facsimile of the one drawn by Berthe Petit at the express command of Our Lord." (From the book, "The Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary").
Digital Art Print of the Vision of the Two Hearts as sketched by Berthe Petit, Belgian mystic and the apostle of the Devotion to the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. The Digital Art Print contains the following words from Our Lord spoken to Berthe Petit.
"It is My desire that this picture, guided by My hand, be spread far and wide, simultaneously with the invocation. Wherever it will be venerated, My Mercy and My Love will be made manifest and the sight of Our Hearts, wounded by the same wound, will encourage tepid and weak souls to come back to their duty."
The Words of Our Lord to Berthe Petit:
"Teach souls to love the Heart of My Mother pierced with sorrow that transfixed My Own Heart."
"My desire flows from My love on Calvary. In giving John to My Mother as a son, I entrusted the whole world to her Sorrowful Motherhood."
"Let every soul cry out: Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us."
Picture of Our Lady of Ollignies:
"This picture of Our Lady of Ollignies is of a mysterious origin. It was discovered under peculiar circumstances in 1918 - the year of the Armistice, in the Convent of the Bernardine nuns by whom Berthe Petit had been educated. After the withdrawal of the German troops from Belgium, consequent on the closure of the war, one of the sisters was asked to put up the cellar in order. Among the various papers, she found a piece of cardboard wrapped in an old newspaper, which she immediately tore off as useless, to be burnt along with other rubbish; but to her astonishment she found, underneath the cardboard, a beautiful picture of Our Lady. This was reported to the Mother Superior; the whole Community felt that their safety during the war was due to the special protection of Our Lady manifested by that picture within the precincts of the Convent. But in spite of a thorough investigation, they were never able to trace its origin. When it was shown to Berthe [Petit] in 1919, after her return from Switzerland, she at once recognized it as the picture of the two-fold symbol of the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
The image in the picture represents the Mother of God, holding in her left hand a lily, symbol of her Immaculate purity - the gratuitous gift of her Divine Son; the finger of the right hand points out to her Sorrowful Heart surmounted by flames and pierced with a sword. The far-away gaze of the penetrating eyes seems as if the Blessed Virgin is beholding with sorrow the sins of mankind, which have caused the suffering expressed on the gentle countenance of her head, slightly inclined to the right. The gentle expression of the face is not quite unlike that of the "Pieta," so often seen in our Churches. At first, copies of this picture were distributed with discretion; but soon it came to be widely known and eagerly sought after all over Belgium. It bore "au verso," the Act of Consecration dictated by Our Lord Himself to Berthe Petit, and used by His Eminence Francis Cardinal Bourne, Primate of England, during and after the Great War, and the Imprimatur of the Bishop of Tournai."
