Way Of The Mother

Feast Of The Seven Sorrows Of The Blessed Virgin Mary 2016

Fr. Superior mentions in today’s Epistle how Judith saves the Jewish people from the terrible Holifernes. She is a type of Our Holy Mother saving us from the terrible clutches of Satan.  He then recalls briefly the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin.   Fr. Superior makes  an analogy in describing how we must embrace our own sorrows in life as a kind of “Tuition for Life.”  He describes Our Holy Mother in her role as Co-redemptrix of the Human Race and how Our Lord, while on the Cross, gave Her to us to be our solace and our hope as we pay our “Tuition for Life.”   Most especially are we to remember that with the Cross we have already won as long as we accept and embrace it in our lives.
