Seven Sorrows of Mary
Our Lady’s cooperation in the redemption of mankind and the world reminds us of her magnificence. The Church marks this period as a time to celebrate not just one mystery of Christ, but views the mystery of Christ in all aspects. In prayer, we focus this time on understanding how her sorrows contributed to His divine plan. Though her sorrows were not required for our redemption, according to God, they were inseparable from it.
