Our Lady of Sorrows

“‘Woman, behold, your son.’
Then he said to the disciple,
‘Behold, your mother.'”

When Jesus was on the cross, he gave his mother to us as our mother.

As mentioned in the previous post, Mary said very little in Scriptures.  But her humble actions spoke louder than words ever could.

What did she do when they were crucifying her son?  She stood by quietly, a “sword piercing” her heart. She never once screamed and yelled at those who were murdering her Son.  Why?  She followed Jesus’ example.

What did she do when Simeon told her that her son was “destined for the downfall” of others and that a “sword would pierce her own heart?”  Quiet acceptance.

What did she do when Jesus was lost for three days?  Searched without giving up hope.

What did she do when Jesus carried his cross?  Mary made sure to let Jesus know that she was there.

What did she do when her son’s body was taken from the cross?  She held him, tenderly and grieved quietly.

We can learn so much from Mary, from her humility, from her acceptance, from her faith, even though she doesn’t say much verbally in Scripture.  Her actions say more than any words can say.

As mentioned previously, she said, “Do whatever He tells you.”

Let us do what her Son tells us to do.  Let us to continue to fast and pray.  Our world needs it.  Our souls need it.

If you’re looking for a way to celebrate this feast, try reciting the Seven Sorrows Chaplet.

Today, let us pray and fast for all the community intentions, for peace in the world and for all sinners and those struggling.

Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us!  Holy Spirit, teach us to pray!
