Very beautiful photo image certified blessed by a priest of 15 x 20 cm with a user manual including the prayer of conjuration of Our Lady of the Seven Sorrows.
Our Lady is invoked in Latin as Mater Dolorosa. It is one of the many titles by which the Catholic Church venerates the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus. The title emphasizes the association of the mother with the suffering of her son.
The “seven pains” refer to the events, recorded in the Gospels, which made the mother of Jesus suffer in so far as she accompanied her son in his mission as Redeemer.
We celebrate Our Lady of Sorrows on September 15, the day after the feast of the Holy Cross, which is normal, since Mary's greatest pain was to see her Son on the cross.
Din Tradition, reciting the conjuring prayer of Our Lady of the Seven Sorrows before her representation allows us to get through all the dangers that men can put on our life path (perfume with Marie's Eau de Parfum before and after performing the prayer).
First pain: Simeon's prophecy As Jesus grew in age ... As the time marked for the Passion of her Son approached, she felt in her Mother's heart more cruelly torn by the sword predicted by Simeon in the temple. If therefore Jesus, our King, and his most holy Mother, did not refuse, out of love for us, to endure such bitter pain throughout their lives, do we have the right to lament when we have something? thing to suffer?
Second pain: The flight into Egypt As it was winter, we had to endure the snow, the rain, the wind, on steep and muddy paths. Mary, then fifteen years old, was a delicate virgin, not at all used to such fatigue. The holy family had no one to serve it. Let us learn to courageously embrace the crosses, for one cannot live in this world without suffering.
Third pain: The loss of Jesus in the temple There are some who assure that this pain was the greatest… In the other pains, Mary had Jesus with her, while here, she suffers far from Jesus, without even knowing where he is. is. Ah! how long these three days were for Mary! They seemed to him three centuries. Days of pure pain, days of no possible consolation.
Fourth Pain: The Meeting of Jesus Going to Death She was his mother and servant; he was his Son and his God. This mixture of qualities so diverse produced in the heart of Mary a fire of love made up of a thousand fires. But at the time of the Passion, this fire of love turned into an ocean of pain.
Fifth Pain: The Death of Jesus Mothers fear being present in the agony of their children, and if one of them is forced to stay near her dying son, she tries to give him everything possible reliefs. She arranges her bed to give him a more comfortable position, she offers him refreshments: thus the poor mother consoles her pain. But you, O Mary, O most afflicted Mother of all mothers, you must be present in the agony of your Son, and it is not permissible for you to give him the slightest relief.
Sixth pain: Jesus pierced with a lance and taken down from the cross The lance, says Saint Bernard, entering into the heart of Jesus, crossed the soul of Mary, because this blessed soul could not be detached from the Heart of Jesus. Previously, Mary had her Son to sympathize with her sufferings, now she no longer has him. The disciples released their hands first, then their feet. Then, one supporting the body from above, the other from below, both lower it from the cross. The Mother of Sorrows stands on tiptoe and extends her arms to receive her beloved Son. She kisses him and sits at the foot of the cross. She considers Jesus' half-open mouth and his dull eyes; she glances, one after the other, her torn limbs and her exposed bones. She takes off the crown and sees the wounds made by the thorns in her sacred head ...
Seventh Pain: The Burial of Jesus On returning from the sepulcher, passing in front of the cross still stained with the blood of her Jesus, Mary stopped and was thus the first to worship him. “O holy cross,” she said, “I kiss you and I adore you. You are no longer an infamous wood now, you are a throne of love and the altar of mercy, consecrated by the blood of the divine Lamb who was slain on you for the salvation of the world. »Ask her that at least she will allow you to cry with her: Make me cry with you! She cries for love; you cry through the pain of your sins. Thus, you will be able to obtain the same happiness as the religious referred to in the following example.
