Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us

The Servites helped popularize a special form of Rosary prayer that’s dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows. Called simply the “Rosary of the Seven Sorrows”—and not to be confused with the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary—this form of devotional prayer recalls seven instances when Mary suffered. Mary’s “Seven Sorrows” are: the prophecy of Simeon, the flight into Egypt, the loss of the Child Jesus in the temple, Mary’s meeting of Jesus during the Way of the Cross, the Crucifixion, the taking down of Jesus’ body from the cross, and the burial of Jesus. The devotion became widespread during the Black Plague of the 1300s; more recently, it’s associated with an apparition of Mary to one of the victims of the 1994 Rwandan genocide. It’s a reminder that Our Mother is with us always, even and especially during tragedy.

TODAY'S READINGS: James 1:1-11; Mark 8:11-13 (335). “He sighed from the depth of his spirit.”

The Irish pastor said, “Everyone who wants to go to Heaven stand up!” and the whole church stood up.  And he said, “And those who want to go to hell, remain standing!” At the back of the church, old Murphy remained standing.   The pastor said, “Murphy, do you want to go to hell?”  Murphy said, “No, Father… I just hate to see you go there all by yourself!”
