The Woman Of Seven Sorrows


September is the month dedicated to the seven sorrows of our Blessed Mother. It is also a month with several Marian feast days. On September 8th, we celebrate the Nativity of Mary and on September 15th we celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows. September 14th is the feast of the Exaltation of the Cross, not a Marian feast day strictly speaking, but Our Lady was at the cross and it is one of her seven sorrows; we can therefore certainly remember her on that day as well.
No one was closer to Jesus than His Mother. As we recall her sorrows throughout this month, let us ask her to bring us closer to her Divine Son, and may she teach us to love Him more and better.
The website of the Seven Dolors of Mary has some beautiful meditations on each of the seven sorrows as well as other beautiful prayers. You can access the site through this post or by clicking the image on my sidebar.
I will leave you with this musical Scriptural meditation on Our Lady's Seven Sorrows

Wonderful video meditation on Our Lady's sorrows. Truly, we can scarcely do better than to foster a devotion to Our Lady's Seven Sorrows in our own hearts if we wish to grow in sanctity and comfort the Heart of her Divine Son. Thank you for the reminder, Karinann.
Thank you so much for this wonderful post Karinann.

God bless.
