As research on Diabolical Narcissism revealed, the demonic, murderous hatred that narcissists have for other people revolves around human beings who, unlike them, are capable of and have a massive capacity to love, and who experience all of those emotions which derive from love, including sadness and mourning, most especially the capacity to empathize and mourn for others. Diabolical Narcissists, by a free choice and movement of their will, have purged themselves of love, are thus incapable of empathy, and thus only experience the demonic emotional palate of anger, hatred, jealousy and fear. They invariably accuse people who experience normal emotions of being “needy”, “insecure”, self-absorbed”, “manipulative” and “emotional blackmailers”, and, ultimately, of being “crazy”. This is a species of gaslighting, a hallmark tactic of pathological narcissists.
We know from the example of Our Immaculate Mother, conceived without Original Sin, who suffered more than any non-divine human being, and the words of Christ Himself, that those who mourn are blessed, and will be comforted, that the Narcissists’ contempt for those who love and are normally, humanly affective is, in fact, diabolical.
Now we just said that the Blessed Mother suffered more than any mortal person before, or since, or yet to come. And science, specifically cardiology, has just recently identified that people can and do die of a “broken heart”, meaning from intense sadness and suffering. It is called “Broken Heart Syndrome”, or Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy. It is a completely different physiological event from a myocardial infarction, or heart attack, even though the symptoms and outcome (heart failure) are exactly alike. It centers on abnormal movement of the interior heart wall of the left ventricular apex. Remember that. It is going to be important in a minute.
So, if Mary Immaculate did indeed suffer more than any mortal person ever, WHY DIDN’T SHE DIE OF A BROKEN HEART, WHICH IS A VERY REAL THING?
Well, as was initially covered in the Science of the Immaculate Conception and Assumption essay, cells pass from every unborn child to the mother, and then persist in the mother’s body for the rest of her life. Now, we all thought that factoid was pretty spectacular by itself, right? Oh, just wait until you hear THIS:
Some of the cells passed from unborn children to their mothers are STEM CELLS. These stem cells persist in the mother’s body for the rest of her life, and when a trauma happens to the mother, the stem cells from the baby spring into action, migrate to the area where help and healing are needed, where they then undergo cellular maturation and integrate themselves into the mother’s tissue. Guess what the most common locus for these healing events is?
The Blessed Virgin didn’t die of grief because she carried in her body stem cells from Our Blessed Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, which grafted themselves into her Immaculate Heart and kept her from dying of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy. His stem cells kept her from dying of a broken heart – until she had completed the course of her earthly life and it was time for her to be assumed into heaven and crowned its Queen by her Son.
Three concluding points:
1. Women who have murdered by abortion their unborn children have been healed later in life by stem cells donated by the very children they murdered.
2. The locus of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy in the heart is the interior wall of the left ventricle at the apex. This is literally “the bottom of your heart”, or the “depths of my heart”.
3. All of the Eucharistic miracles involving the Host manifesting as flesh that have been tested have yielded the same results. The flesh is that of a human male, blood type AB+, and the cells are myocardium – that is, interior heart wall.
Our Blessed Lord comes to us in the Eucharist, and will graft our broken hearts with His own flesh, just as He did with His Mother. But we have to love Him, which means follow His Law and confess our sins, and have hearts that are capable of breaking, and which we allow to be potentially broken in the first place by loving others.
…Who healeth the broken of heart, and bindeth up their bruises.
…Qui sanat contritos corde, et alligat contritiones eorum.
PSALM 146: 3
Happy Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary!
