Her Triumph is victory over evil in our own hearts. This is what happens at the moment of our conversion from sin. The Triumph of the Immaculate Heart takes hold when a heart turns toward God with Mary's faith and surrender. When we say "Yes" to God, declaring our "fiat" as she did, The Triumph begins in us. She allowed God to be all in
her. As God's messenger, she invites us to accept the saving power of God calling us to repentance. Our triumph begins when we say "Yes" to Him, and it grows and puts down roots more deeply until that Day when we will be raised up with Christ, just as Mary was raised up in her Assumption. The Triumph will appear on earth, "in the end," when
everyone in the world consents to repeat the "Yes" of Mary given to God when she consented to become Mother to His Holy One, Jesus.
