A Feast Full Of Emotion

Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary 2017

Our Lady’s seven sorrows do not encompass all that She suffered during Her life but these are the important ones which prepared Her to be our Compassionate Mother.  The reverse of the Miraculous Medal, which was given us by our Heavenly Queen, is a link to this devotion of Our Lady of Sorrows.  The description of the medal bears this out and the Immaculate Conception, which is the medal’s official title and what is depicted on the obverse of the medal, is the necessary prerequisite for the creation of a worthy Mother of the Redeemer and a worthy Co-Redemptrix.  The Mass and office for today’s feast makes us realize these truths with much emotional force.  The concluding and moving personal story about this devotion is a beautiful and fitting testimony to its essential role in our lives.
