He who pursues righteousness and loyalty Finds life, righteousness and honor.

The Seven Sorrows of Mary

Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows September 15

The sorrows of Mary are chronicled in the following bible passages. As a mother I see the foreshadowing of the heartache.

If you want to do this devotion, I've listed them each and the corresponding bible verses. You can use a rosary to count your 7 Hail Mary prayers. If you have an iPod, iPad, iPhone, I recommend this app Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception

Make the sign of the cross; pray an Act of Contrition;

The First Sorrow — The Prophecy (Luke 2:25-35)
Our Father; 7 Hail Mary's

The Second Sorrow — The Flight (Mt 2:13-15)
Our Father; 7 Hail Mary

The Third Sorrow — The Loss (Lk 2:43-51)
Our Father; 7 Hail Mary's

The Fourth Sorrow — The Meeting (Lk 23:27-30)
Our Father; 7 Hail Mary's

The Fifth Sorrow — Jesus Dies (Jn 19:25-30)
Our Father; 7 Hail Mary's

The Sixth Sorrow — Mary Receives Jesus (Jn 19:31-37)
Our Father; 7 Hail Mary's

The Seventh Sorrow — The Burial (Mk 15:40-47)
Our Father; 7 Hail Mary's

Then conclude with 3 Hail Mary's in honor of Our Sorrowful Mother's tears.

What mother cant feel compassion for this mother? Her child, beaten and crucified for telling the truth! It's the scariest story of bullying I've ever read! The people that believed couldn't stop it. And the bullies were too consumed by their power and what Jesus' words would do to that power to think outside of themselves.
