Tuam Spirt Babies - Heart

The heart symbol is an extremely powerful image and a recurring theme in my own work. 

It's significance to this project arose early on as the aspects of love and connection are obviously at the root of what mother and baby is.

      "he fought his illness with great courage"

Middle English (denoting the heart, as the seat of feelings): from Old French corage, from Latin cor‘heart’.

As you know, I like to look at the origin of a word or check the vibration of it.
One of the Italian words for heart (there are several) is Core.
Some of the latin words for heart are: cor, corcillum, cord, super cor.
The french for heart is Coeur.
Some of the Spanish words are centro, cuoro.
The word Courage has Cour at it's root too; meaning heart. 

Bon Secours translates as good help. This expression is often seen in names such as "Notre Dame de Bon Secours" which means "Our Lady of Good Comfort". It's usually used as a reference to the Virgin Mary but having looked at the other aspects of courage and the heart these also fit with the name Bon Secours too. I don't need to labour the point, you know where this is leading... #Tuamspiritbabies
As mentioned in an earlier post. Catherine Corless means pure heart Xx
