The month of September is traditionally dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows.**** Most holy Virgin and Mother, whose soul was pierced by a sword of sorrow in the Passion of thy divine Son, and who in His glorious Resurrection wast filled with never-ending joy at His triumph; obtain for us who call upon thee, so to be partakers in the adversities of Holy Church and the sorrows of the Sovereign Pontiff, as to be found worthy to rejoice with them in the consolation for which we pray, in the charity and peace of the same Christ our Lord. Amen. ********* Seven Sorrows of Mary: • The Prophecy of Simeon. • The Flight into Egypt. • The Loss of the Child Jesus in the Temple of Jerusalem. • Mary's meeting Jesus on the Via Dolorosa (not found in the New Testament) • The Crucifixion of Jesus on Mount Calvary. • Jesus is Taken Down from the Cross. • The Burial of Jesus by Joseph of Arimathea. ***** Our Lady of Sorrows, Pray for us!
