Heart Milagros -- click on an image for more detail

The heart may be the most widely recognized symbol in the world. Heart-shaped milagros from Latin America typically indicate gratitude for a prayer answered. Many old heart-shaped milagros are engraved with the letters "G.R.", which stands for gracias recibidas or grace received.

While many heart-shaped milagros represent specific religious symbols (the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ or the Sacred Heart of Mary, for example), others relate to secular concerns such as a heart condition or a budding romance.
