Today, September 15, is the Feast of Our Lady Of Sorrows.
The devotion to Our Lady of Sorrows began in the 13th century, recalling the seven sorrows Our Lady endured during the lifetime of Jesus.
The Seven Sorrows are The Prophecy of Simeon, The Flight Into Egypt, Losing Jesus In Jerusalem, Meeting Jesus On The Road To Calvary, Jesus' Death On The Cross, Receiving Jesus' Body Into Her Arms, The Burial Of Jesus.
You might like to pray the Chaplet Of The Seven Sorrows (or Dolors) today. You can find the prayers, Scripture verses and meditations here. (Scroll down the page to the chaplet).
"Let us bind ourselves tightly to the Sorrowful Heart of our Heavenly Mother and reflect on it's boundless grief and how precious is our soul."
~ Saint Padre Pio
