FEAST OF OUR LADY OF SORROWS! HONOR OUR MOTHER!
Today is the Feast day of our Lady of Sorrows and the month of September is dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows. During this month of September, we are drawn into the spiritual martyrdom that the Blessed Mother experienced during the physical martyrdom of Jesus. The evils of sin are manifest but conquered through intense suffering. The Blessed Mother's tears of anguish reflect God's washing away of sin. Pray the Seven Sorrows of Mary (Dolorosary).
The Seven Sorrows of Mary are: (1) The Circumcision and Prophecy of Simeon; (2) the Flight into Egypt; (3) Loss of Child Jesus for Three Days; (4) Mary meets Jesus on his Way to Calvary; (5) Mary Stands at the foot of the cross, (6) Mary receives the dead body of Jesus and lastly; (7) the Burial of Christ.
