Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows

15th September is the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows. It is a feast of the church and a day of special prayer and devotion in the Passionist Congregation to which I belong.

There are seven sorrows of Mary:

  1. Simeon's Prophecy about the Sword of Sorrow (Luke 2:34-35)
  2. The Flight of Mary, Joseph and Jesus into Egypt (Matthew 2:13)
  3. The Loss of the Child Jesus in the Temple (Luke 2:43-45)
  4. Mary Meets Jesus on the Way to Calvary (Luke 23:26)
  5. Jesus dies on the Cross (John 19:25)
  6. Mary Receives the Body of Jesus into Her Arms (Matthew 27:57)
  7. The Body of Jesus is Placed in the Tomb (John 19:40)
God's blessing on you.                                                                                                 A.T.
