 Our Description

This laminated holy card has an image of Mary with a pierced heart on the front and the following prayer on the back:

The Seven Sorrows of Mary

The prophecy of Simeon
The flight into Egypt
The three-day loss of Jesus in the Temple at Jerusalem
The Meeting with Jesus on the way to Calvary
The Crucifixion - Mary standing at the foot of the Cross
The Pieta - Receiving His body
The placing of her Divine Son in a tomb

O Desolate Mother, who can know the tender affection of thy broken heart that was laid in the sepulchre with the body of thy Divine Son?  He was thy all, He still is thy all, for dejection has no claim upon thee.  Teach me, Mother of Sorrow, to place my hope in Him, that the false security of the world may never seduce me.  Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary, O May Conceived, etc.

Our Lady of Sorrows

 Our Lady of Sorrows Feast Day:
Roman Rite Calendar - 09/15
Tridentine Calendar - 09/15


Since the early middle ages, the Church in the West has celebrated the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows in mid-September, a devotion to the suffering and spiritual martyrdom of the Blessed Mother of Our Lord. The name Our Lady of Sorrows was first used by the Servites, or the Friar Servants of Mary, an order that was founded in 1233. The original intention of the order was a devotion to the Virgin Mary, in particular Our Lady of Sorrows. As an order, the Servites promote the Scapular of Our Lady of Sorrows, the Chaplet of the Seven Sorrows of Our Lady (a special rosary made of seven sets of seven beads rather than five decades), and the Way of the Cross for the Sorrowful Mother, or Via Matris. The name Our Lady of Sorrows was given in reference to the devotion to the Seven Sorrows, or Dolors, of Mary.Devotion to the sorrows of Mary is a reminder of the bond between Mary and Jesus, and that as the Mother of God, she suffered greatly and felt very real pain on behalf of the suffering of her son.
