Our Lady of Sorrows

The Seven Sorrows
The Prophecy of Simeon over the Infant Jesus. (Lk 2:34)
The Flight into Egypt of the Holy Family. (Mt 2:13)
The Loss of the Child Jesus for three days. (Lk2:43)
The Meeting of Jesus and Mary along the way of the cross. (Lk 23:26)
The Crucifixion, where Mary stands at the foot of the cross. (Jn 19:25)
The Descent from the cross, where Mary receives the dead body of Jesus in her arms. (Mt 27:57)
The Burial of Jesus. (Jn 19:40)

Today, September 15th is dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows.
It is a day to remember Our Blessed Mother's many sufferings.
Catholic Icing had many ideas to help children think about this day.
We made bookmarks, so that whenever we are reading, we can be reminded to pray for Mary's help us when we deal with our own small sufferings. The idea comes from Our Domestic Church.
The beads are Mary's tears....
Our Lady of Sorrow, Pray for us!!
