September 15 – Our Lady of Sorrows

Our Lady of Sorrows

listenO Lamb of God, Mary is called Our Lady of Sorrows because her passionate love for You caused her to suffer when she watched Your enemies inflict their tortures upon You and slowly kill You.  She offered up the piercing of her heart as if her life were an altar, sacrificing her beloved Son for the salvation of the world.  Through it all, she did not feel sorry for herself nor did she complain, because she accepted her pain for our sake, in passionate love for us.  I ask her to take my sorrows and sufferings and lift them up to You as an offering for the people in my life who need healing emotionally, physically, or spiritually.  Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.  Amen.
