Devotion to the Mother of Sorrows

OLOSorrowsIntroduction to the seven sorrows devotion

The purpose of the Devotion of the Seven Sorrows is to promote union with the sufferings of Christ through union with the special suffering that Our Lady endured because she was the Mother of God. By uniting ourselves with both the Passion of Christ and His holy Mother, we enter into Jesus’ Heart and honor Him greatly; He is more honored because we have so honored His Mother.

The Seven Dolors are taken from Scripture events and the devotion has a long history, although it was not officially promulgated by the Church until the early nineteenth century. Before Pope Pius VII’s formal approval, the Servite Order had permission in 1668 to celebrate the Feast of the Seven Dolors because the Order was instrumental in popularizing the Seven Sorrows Devotion.

In the Middle Ages, Catholic theology concentrated mostly on Christ’s Passion; at the side of the Man of Sorrows, however, the faithful always contemplated the Queen of Martyrs. Devotion to the Crucified Christ and to Our Lady of sorrows grew side by side. On Calvary there were in a sense two altars, one in the Body of Jesus, and the other in the Immaculate Heart. Christ immolated His flesh, Mary, her heart, her own soul. On September 15, the day following the ancient feast of the Holy Cross, the Church commemorates the compassion of Mary; but it is fitting during the year, especially during Lent, to honor the Sorrows of Mary.

Mary is not mentioned in the Gospel accounts of Christ’s Transfiguration, His entry into Jerusalem, but she is recorded as being present at Calvary. She understood what the Will of God was and was faithful, co-operating with her Son as Co-redemptrix. She had prepared the victim for sacrifice and now she offered Him on the altar of Calvary.

The Gospel, John 19:25, says: “Near the Cross of Jesus stood His mother, his mother’s sister, Mary, the wife of Cleopas, and Mary Magdalene.” At Christ’s bequest, Mary was proclaimed the universal Mother of mankind from the Cross.

Mary had three loves in her Immaculate Heart: God, her Son, and souls. She so loved the world that she gave her only Son. As St. Bernard said, “The sword would not have reached Jesus if it had not pierced Mary’s heart.” Mary loved souls and on Calvary, after suffering such cruel torments she merited being the mother of all mankind.

Mary is the Apostle because she is Co-redemptrix: Behold Mary on Calvary, she suffers and prays; she stands, as one offering sacrifice.

St. Ambrose said, “I read that she stood, but I do not read that she wept.” When Mary gave us her Son, she gave us everything. Therefore it can very well be said: “Behold this heart which has so greatly loved all people that it has spared nothing for them.”

SEVEN SORROWS 7dolors

Opening Meditation
In the Sorrows of the Virgin Mary we see a reflection of the suffering and bitter anguish of the human Christ. Just as Mary accepted the total mystery of Christ into her life, so may we see in our sorrow, our fear, and humiliation, a dim, but real participation in His passion and death, recalling that if we wish to follow Him, we must “take up our cross” each day. Let us pray that we may accept Christ’s call, and become co-sufferers of His passion.

6.The taking down of the Body of Jesus from the Cross.  I grieve for you, O Mary most sorrowful, in the wounding of your compassionate heart, when the side of Jesus was struck by the lance before His Body was removed from the cross.

7.The burial of Jesus.  I grieve for you, O Mary most sorrowful, for the pangs that wrenched your most loving heart at the burial of Jesus.

Virgin Mary: My Gift to defeat and destroy the serpent

My child, tell all those followers of my beloved Son, Jesus Christ, that they must seek my protection at all times. Satan’s days are drawing swiftly to an end and many children are vulnerable to his temptations.

By asking me for protection and my special graces, Satan will not harm my children or draw them away from my Son.

Everyone is a target of Satan today as he roams everywhere seeking the ruination of souls. His attacks are most vicious when you are a devout follower of God and when you have a strong faith. His hatred for such souls will cause them pain and confusion. Continue reading

As the faith of My followers becomes stronger, attacks on them increase

My dearly beloved daughter, how you suffer for Me and how strong you have become as a result.My protection is all around you. Do not fear. As this Work continues to convert souls, so too, will the attacks by Satan. Accept this. Do not let it bother you. Rise above the challenges and keep your eyes on Me at all times. For when you do, nothing else will matter.

The same suffering will be felt by all My followers as the Holy Spirit continues unabated to attract the souls of all My children everywhere, as their faith in Me becomes stronger, so too will the attacks on them by others increase. They, My followers will notice that they have to face arguments, deal with unusual and abusive comments and reactions from unbelievers, which will be difficult for them to deal with.

Why God, the Eternal Father, is sending new prophets into the world

dmdMy dearly beloved daughter, for the doubters, especially My sacred servants, who may dismiss My Word through these Messages, this is what I would like to say to them. Increase your faith in Me by acknowledging that My Word was given to the world not only during My time on Earth, but through the Power of the Holy Spirit after that.

Since the beginning of time, God, My Eternal Father, has communicated to mankind through the prophets; in this way the Teachings of the Truth were made known to man to ensure that their faith remained strong. Other revelations and lessons in the Truth were also given to mankind through the apostles, other devout disciples and through the prophet, John the Evangelist.

After that My Word, My Teachings and everything that man needed to bring him the salvation he needs was in order. Now that the world is facing the biggest shift in its history, God, My Eternal Father, has sent new prophets to the world. These prophets, make no mistake, do not bring you new Teachings, for that is not necessary.

Instead they are being sent for three reasons.

The first is to remind mankind of the Truth contained in the Book of Revelation. The second is to make man alert to the times he is living in so that he can rekindle his faith. The third is to help spread conversion so that My followers can form the biggest army of all in order to save souls. I Am communicating through this prophet and others, so that My Word is heard in every corner of the world. Continue reading

For that is the power of the love you have for me your Blessed Mother. I have guided and coaxed you towards this very special calling. Please keep turning to me, your beloved Mother, each day for daily guidance.

All the saints are still walking with you, but you don’t know it. You must call on St. Benedict, St. Joseph, St. John the Evangelist, St. Augustine and Michael the Archangel to give you the support you will need. So much stronger now are you, my child, that you wonder why. It is because of your obedience to my beloved Son that you are now receiving the graces needed for this special Divine Mission, for which you have been chosen.

Praying my Most Holy Rosary each day is important, for it will protect you from the evil one. St. Benedict has been assigned to you at all times to protect you from the attacks from the deceiver.

Accept the suffering demanded of you by my precious Son, Jesus Christ, for this will save countless souls. Your special gift to Him of your free will, will prevent millions of souls from entering the fires of Hell. Keep remembering what your suffering is achieving and the joy that this will bring to my Son’s Sacred Heart.

You are now enjoying the special Gift of being in union with my Son. The more you completely surrender, show humility and make further sacrifices, the more you will help Him in this task, which is so important to Him.

Be thankful, my child, for being asked to do this sacred Work, for without it millions of souls could not be saved.

Come nearer now to my Heart and let me keep you closer to my Son. I will protect and guide you at all times.

Your beloved Mother
Queen of Peace
