Humans of Sacred Heart- Emma Caruso ’20

How do you feel about getting your Mater Medal?
“I feel more connected to Sacred Heart, and I also feel very complete. I have been going to Sacred Heart for seven years now, and I have always heard about Mater and her significance to our school. Now that I have finally received the medal, I feel complete with my journey of learning about her. Now, I can take my knowledge of her and use it to help me through the medal.”
What significance does Mater have to you?
“Mater to me is a symbol of unity and love. I believe that Mary is one of the most important figures in Catholicism. My reason for this is because Mater resembles pure holiness and caring for all, which is love. Love is special because it is something that we as humans can all achieve no matter who we are. Love is relatable to all and can be achieved at any point of one’s life. Mater symbolizing this makes her extremely important. She is presented as a humble little girl in the painting, which to me resembles a pure and strong love. Mater is significant to me because she shows me the importance of love.”
What was your favorite part of last week’s Mother-Daughter Liturgy?
“My favorite part of the liturgy was the speeches that were given by Sofia Piriz and her mother. The speeches reflected the unconditional love that a mother has for her daughter and really showed that together a mother and daughter can get through everything. I was moved by their speeches and it made me want to cherish every moment I have with my mom.”
