Today's the feast day of the Seven Sorrows of my dearest Mother of Sorrows :)See the nails in her hands, see the fire burning with love on her Heart, her Immaculate Heart.
See the Seven Swords, representing her Seven sorrows. How it pierces her heart. What must it be to have a sword piercing your heart. It must be so painful, so painful, but oh so very dear beautiful.
Dearest Mother Dear, please help me. :) Ora pro me. I am all yours.
The Seven Sorrows of Our Blessed Mother:
I. The First Sorrow of our Blessed Lady was when, having presented Jesus, her Divine Son, in the Temple, she heard the words of holy Simeon, "Thy own soul a sword shall pierce;" by which he foretold the Passion and Death of her Son Jesus.
II. The Second Sorrow of our Blessed Lady was when she was obliged to flee into Egypt, because King Herod was seeking the Child to destroy Him.
III. The Third Sorrow of our Blessed Lady was when,returning from Jerusalem after the feast of the Pasch, she lost her beloved Son Jesus and for three days, with St. Joseph, sought Him sorrowing.
IV. The Fourth Sorrow of our Blessed Lady was when she met on the way to Calvary her dear Son Jesus, carrying on His bruised shoulders a heavy cross, whereon He was to be crucified for our salvation.
V. The Fifth Sorrow of our Blessed Lady was when she saw her Divine Son nailed to the cross, shedding blood from all parts of His sacred body, and after three hours' agony beheld Him die.
VI. The Sixth Sorrow of our Blessed Lady was when a soldier with a spear opened the sacred Side of Jesus, and when His sacred body, being taken down from the cross, was laid on her most pure bosom.
VII. The Seventh Sorrow of our Blessed Lady was when she saw the most sacred Body of her Son Jesus laid in the sepulcher.
In honor of the tears which our Lady shed in her Dolors,that we may obtain a true sorrow for our sins and gain the holy indulgences.
Deo gratias et Mariae.
Deus propitius esto mihi peccatori.
Jesus, Mary, I love Thee; Save Souls!
