Our Lady of Sorrows

Hebrews 5:7-9; Psalm 31; John 19:25-27

Sharing the burden

We search for the meaning of our sorrows, we search for the meaning of suffering. Did Mary understand what the slaughter of her son on the Cross was for? Did she wonder why this had to happen? The point of this feast is that by uniting ourselves to Mary, we come to appreciate more the sufferings of Christ and in so doing, our sufferings become a little lighter. Perhaps we could pray for those who on this day are particularly burdened by some sorrow. May they have support around them at this time.
