Our Lady of Sorrows commemorates the profound union of heart that existed between the Mother of the Redeemer and Saviour Christ Jesus through which she experienced many interior sorrows as a consequence of His Mission, but particularly during His Passion and Death.
As the Mother of the Suffering Servant (Isaiah 53), she witnessed her Son’s Passion and Death on the Cross. This is why, as we face our own pains, trials and temptations, we should turn to Our Lady of Sorrows and meditate on her Seven Sorrows. Most relevantly, in the presence of the Eucharistic Adoration, unite your sorrows with our Lord Jesus & our Lady of Sorrows.
The Memorial of Our Lady of Sorrows commemorates the seven sorrows in the Heart of Mary. The prophecy of Simeon (Luke 2:33–35)
