Our Lady of Sorrows

Fr. David

The feast day of the Seven Sorrows of Our Blessed Mother is traditionally celebrated either the Friday of Passion Week, which is before Palm Sunday, or more generally on September 15th, the official date for the feast. In our parish we did it last weekend. I would like to share with you the importance of this devotion. The Gospel says: “Near the Cross of Jesus stood His mother, his mother's sister, Mary, the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.” (Jn 19:25) and from that day, at Christ's legacy, Mary was proclaimed the universal Mother of mankind from the Cross. The faithful always contemplated the Queen of Martyrs. They truly believed that Jesus was immolated in flesh, and Mary on her own soul.

There are seven promises for those who develop a deep devotion to Our Lady and contemplate her sorrows.

  1. I will grant peace to their families.
  2. They will be enlightened about the Divine mysteries.
  3. I will console them in their pains and I will accompany them in their work.
  4. I will give them as much as they ask for as long as it does not oppose the adorable will of my Divine Son or the sanctification of their souls.
  5. I will defend them in their spiritual battles with the infernal enemy and I will protect them at every instant of their lives.
  6. I will visibly help them at the moment of their death, they will see the face of their Mother.
  7. I have obtained this Grace from my Divine Son, that those who propagate this devotion to my tears and sorrows will be taken directly from this earthly life to eternal happiness since all their sins will be forgiven and my Son and I will be their eternal consolation and joy.

In our country places like Phoenix, AZ; Santa Barbara, CA; Chicago, IL, among others have celebrated this important feast. May our blessed Mother intercede for us.

NUESTRA SEÑORA DE LOS DOLORES

La fiesta de los Siete Dolores de Nuestra Santísima Madre se celebraba anteriormente el Viernes de Pasión o Viernes de Dolores. Pero en el calendario litúrgico se celebra el 15 de septiembre un día después de la Exaltación de la Santa Cruz. De esta manera se recuerda lo que dice el evangelio: “Cerca de la Cruz de Jesús estaban su madre, la hermana de su madre, María, la esposa de Cleofás y María Magdalena.” (Jn 19:25)

La Virgen hizo siete promesas para aquellos que desarrollen una profunda devoción a sus dolores y lágrimas:

Nuestra Señora de los Dolores
  1. Le concederé paz a sus familias.
  2. Ellos serán iluminados acerca de los misterios Divinos.
  3. Los consolaré en sus penas y los acompañaré en su trabajo.
  4. Les daré todo lo que pidan mientras no se oponga a la adorable voluntad de mi Divino Hijo o la santificación de sus almas.
  5. Los defenderé en sus batallas espirituales con el enemigo infernal y los protegeré en cada instante de sus vidas.
  6. Los ayudaré visiblemente en el momento de su muerte, ellos verán el rostro de su Madre.
  7. He obtenido esta Gracia de mi Divino Hijo, para que aquellos que propagan esta devoción a mis lágrimas y tristezas sean llevados directamente de esta vida terrenal a la felicidad eterna, ya que todos sus pecados serán perdonados y mi Hijo y yo seremos su eterno consuelo y alegría.

Muchos lugares como Parral, Chihuahua; Jerez, Zacatecas; Puebla; Oaxaca; Ciudad Dolores en Cabañas y Apulo El Salvador; Lima, Peru, y así otros pueblos han venerado los siete dolores de la Virgen. Que la Santísima Virgen interceda por nosotros.
