Hebrews 5:7-9; Psalm 31; John 19:25-27 or Luke 2:33-35

Our Lady of Sorrows (M)

In pain with us

His parents took the child Jesus to the temple. A kind, holy man Simeon took Jesus gently in his arms. Simeon looked at Mary and told her that a sword will pierce her heart. Mary will suffer and experience unbearable pain because of her son and what they do to him. There is a natural order of life. Children live longer than their parents. When a parent loses a child it is unbearable. Mary is a woman who knows pain. Ask her to help you to live through your pain and suffering. She will be with you.
