Seven Sorrows Devotion

Updated: Mar 29

Here is the document for the Seven Sorrows Devotion we will be praying on Saturday, 3/27! Feel free to print it or pull it up on your phone to pray along.

The purpose of the devotion of the Seven Sorrows of Our Lady is to promote union with the sufferings of Christ through union with the special sufferings that Our Lady endured for the sake of her Son and our salvation. Devotion to Our Lady of Sorrows consists essentially in recalling and meditating on each of the seven sorrows and saying the Hail Mary prayer seven times, one for each sorrow. Mary, in a unique way, willingly suffered alongside her Divine Son as he gave his life to save the world, and she felt the bitterness of his passion as only a mother can.

We hope this devotion really helps you to finish out Lent and enter into Holy Week.
