MARY’S SEVEN SORRWS

When do we pray the Chaplet of 7 Sorrows?

This Rosary can be prayed at any time, anywhere, in any season of life. We can even dedicate our prayer to the suffering of a friend, family member, ourselves, or the world. We pray this devotion when we need the guidance of the Blessed Virgin and when we need to remind ourselves of the joy that comes out of suffering in this life.

It is also common to pray this Rosary on September 15th, the Feast Day of Our Lady of Sorrows.

How to Pray the Chaplet of Seven Sorrows:

Begin

In the name of The Father, and The Son, and The Holy Spirit. Amen.

Pray

My God, I offer You this Rosary for Your glory, so I can honor your Holy Mother, the Blessed Virgin, so I can share and meditate upon her suffering. I humbly beg you to give me true repentance for all my sins. Give me wisdom and humility, so that I may receive all the indulgences contained in this prayer.

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended You, and I detest all my sins because I dread the loss of Heaven and the pains of hell; but most of all because they offend You, my God, You Who are all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Your grace, to confess my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life. Amen.

 3 Hail Mary.

Most Merciful Mother, remind us always about the Sorrows of your Son, Jesus. 

The First Sword of Sorrow: The Prophecy of Simeon

Luke 2:34-35

And Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, “Behold, this child is destined for the fall and rise of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be contradicted (and you yourself a sword will pierce) so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed”.

Pray

Beloved Mother Mary, whose Heart suffered beyond bearing because of us, teach us to suffer with you and with love, and to accept all the suffering God deems it necessary to send our way. Let us suffer, and may our suffering be known to God only, like yours and that of Jesus. Do not let us show our suffering to the world, so it will matter more and be used to atone for the sins of the world. You, Mother, who suffered with the Savior of the world, we offer you our suffering, and the suffering of the world, because we are your children. Join those sorrows to your own and to those of the Lord Jesus Christ, then offer them to God the Father. You are a Mother greater than all.

 1 Our Father and 7 Hail Mary.

Most Merciful Mother, remind us always about the Sorrows of your Son, Jesus.

The Second Sword of Sorrow: The Flight Into Egypt

Matthew 2:13-14

When they had departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Rise, take the child and his mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I tell you. Herod is going to search for the child to destroy him.” Joseph rose and took the child and his mother by night and departed for Egypt.

Pray

Beloved Mother, who has suffered so much, give to us your courageous heart. Please pray for us to have strength so that we can be brave like you and accept with love the suffering God sends our way. Help us to also accept all the suffering we inflict upon ourselves and the suffering inflicted upon us by others. Heavenly Mother, you, in union with Jesus, purify our suffering so that we may give glory to God and save our souls.

 1 Our Father and 7 Hail Mary.

Most Merciful Mother, remind us always about the Sorrows of your Son, Jesus.

The Third Sword of Sorrow: The Loss of Jesus in the Temple

Luke 2:43-45

After they had completed its days, as they were returning, the boy Jesus remained behind in Jerusalem, but his parents did not know it. Thinking that he was in the caravan, they journeyed for a day and looked for him among their relatives and acquaintances, but not finding him, they returned to Jerusalem to look for him.

Pray

Beloved Mother, teach us to accept all our sufferings because of our sins and to atone for the sins of the whole world.

 1 Our Father and 7 Hail Mary.

Most Merciful Mother, remind us always about the Sorrows of your Son, Jesus.

The Fourth Sword of Sorrow: Mary Meets Jesus on His Way to Calvary

Luke 23:27-29

A large crowd of people followed Jesus, including many women who mourned and lamented him. Jesus turned to them and said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep instead for yourselves and for your children, for indeed, the days are coming when people will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed’.

Pray

Beloved Mother, so stricken with grief, help us to bear our own suffering with courage and love so that we may relieve your Sorrowful Heart and that of Jesus. In doing so, may we give glory to God Who gave you and Jesus to humanity. As you suffered, teach us to suffer silently and patiently. Grant unto us the grace of loving God in everything. O Mother of Sorrows, most afflicted of all mothers, have mercy on the sinners of the whole world.

 1 Our Father and 7 Hail Mary.

Most Merciful Mother, remind us always about the Sorrows of your Son, Jesus.

The Fifth Sword of Sorrow: Mary Stands at the Foot of the Cross

John 19:25-27

Standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple there whom he loved, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son.” Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother.” And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.

Pray

Beloved Mother, Queen of the Martyrs, give us the courage you had in all your sufferings so that we may unite our sufferings with yours and give glory to God. Help us follow all His commandments and those of the Church so that Our Lord’s sacrifice will not be in vain, and all sinners in the world will be saved.

 1 Our Father and 7 Hail Mary.

Most Merciful Mother, remind us always about the Sorrows of your Son, Jesus.

The Sixth Sword of Sorrow: Jesus is Taken Down From the Cross

John 19:32-34

So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first and then of the other one who was crucified with Jesus. But when they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs, but one soldier thrust his lance into his side, and immediately blood and water flowed out.

Pray

We thank you, Beloved Mother, for your courage as you stood beneath your dying Child to comfort Him on the Cross. As our Savior drew His last breath, you became a wonderful Mother to all of us; you became the Blessed Mother of the world. We know that you love us more than our own earthly parents do. We implore you to be our advocate before the Throne of Mercy and Grace so that we can truly become your children. We thank you for Jesus, our Savior and Redeemer, and we thank Jesus for giving you to us. Please pray for us, Mother.

 1 Our Father and 7 Hail Mary.

Most Merciful Mother, remind us always about the Sorrows of your Son, Jesus.

The Seventh Sword of Sorrow: The Burial of Jesus

John 19:41-42

Now in the place where he had been crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one had yet been buried. So they laid Jesus there because of the Jewish preparation day; for the tomb was close by.

Pray

Most Beloved Mother, whose beauty surpasses that of all mothers, Mother of Mercy, Mother of Jesus, and Mother to us all, we are your children and we place all our trust in you. Teach us to see God in all things and all situations, even our sufferings. Help us to understand the importance of suffering, and also to know the purpose of our suffering as God had intended it.

You yourself were conceived and born without sin, were preserved from sin, yet you suffered more than anybody else. You accepted suffering and pain with love and with unsurpassed courage. You stood by your Son from the time He was arrested until He died. You suffered along with Him, felt His every pain and torment. You accomplished the Will of God the Father; and according to His will, you have become our Mother. 

We beg you, dear Mother, to teach us to do as Jesus did. Teach us to accept our cross courageously. We trust you, most Merciful Mother, so teach us to sacrifice for all the sinners in the world. Help us to follow in your Son’s footsteps, and even to be willing to lay down our lives for others.

 1 Our Father and 7 Hail Mary.

Most Merciful Mother, remind us always about the Sorrows of your Son, Jesus.

Closing Prayer

Queen of Martyrs, your heart suffered so much. I beg you, by the merits of the tears you shed in these terrible and sorrowful times, to obtain for me and all the sinners of the world the grace of complete sincerity and repentance. Amen.

Mary, who was conceived without sin and who suffered for us, pray for us. (Pray 3x)

In the name of The Father, and The Son, and The Holy Spirit. Amen.

ANGUISHED, TORMENTED, OPPRESSED, WORRIED?

 

JESUS WANTS TO DELIVER YOU FROM DOUBTS, ANXIETY, OPPRESSION AND GIVE YOU HIS PEACE

Volume 34 – July 12, 1937 

How human reflections take away the place
of the Divine, and are the little pebbles that render the
fount of the soul turbid. How the Divine Will converts Its
Love into her nature, and whatever It does at the moment
of death It anticipates in the one who Lives in It.

I am in the arms of the Divine Volition which, more than
vigilant sentry, not only wants to be Life of each of my acts,
but penetrating into each hiding place of my heart and of my mind, scolds me if anything enters into me which is not a
Birth from the Fiat. And my always lovable Jesus, visiting
my little soul, and assuming the attitude of Teacher who wants
to instruct His daughter in everything, told me: “Blessed
daughter of My Will, You Must Know that self-reflections,
impressions, oppressions, melancholies, doubts, little fears,
impede the Divine reflections, the Holy impressions, the
rapid flight toward Heaven, the Joys of True Good, the
Celestial Peace. They are like many little pebbles cast into a
lake while a person is reflecting himself in those clear waters
as in a mirror, and he sees his whole entire person beautiful
and orderly as it is. And now what happens? While he is
reflecting himself in those crystal clear waters, a little pebble
is cast into that lake: the water ripples, becomes cloudy, and
forms circles upon circles, such as to make the whole water
turbid. And the poor person who was reflecting himself—
what happened to him? As the circles were forming in the
water, so were they taking away, one a foot, another an
arm, another a hand, another the head, in such a way that
the person appeared as though ripped apart by the ripples of
those waters. What was the cause that made those waters
lose their clearness, in a way that his image no longer appears
as whole, but in such a state as to arouse pity? What was it?
A little pebble.
“Such is the soul created by God—more than crystal
clear fount, in which, more than crystal clear fount, God was
to reflect Himself. Now, the reflections, the oppressions, the
doubts, the fears, etc., are like many little pebbles cast into
the depth of her soul; and as God reflects Himself in her, she
does not feel Him as whole, but as though divided into many
parts. Hence, the Strength is divided, the Divine Joy, the
Sanctity, the Unity of Peace, are divided. This will prevent
her from knowing Who God is, how much He Loves her, and
what He wants from her; and if she wants to reflect herself
in God, these little pebbles will hinder her step, making her limp on the way, preventing her flight in order to reflect
herself in the One who created her. They appear as things
of no importance, yet in this is formed the Knowledge of
God in the creature, the Union, the Sanctity, God reflecting
Himself in the creature, and she in God—if the soul is not
disturbed by these little pebbles. These pebbles can be called
the trifles of the soul, and because the firmness and substance
of True Love is missing, she is always turbid, and God cannot
reflect Himself in her in order to form His beautiful Image.
Therefore, be attentive, and always seek My Will.”
Jesus became silent, and I remained there, thinking of
the great evil caused by self-reflections; and my sweet Jesus
added: “My daughter, only in My Will can the soul reach the
top of the highest Sanctity and enclose within herself, as much
as it is possible for a creature, a Complete Act that fills her so
much as to leave no void in her; so much so, that the good that
she does converts into her own nature. If she Loves in My
Fiat, the wave of Love pours upon her whole being, invests
her inmost fibers; and while pouring upon her, overwhelming
her completely in Love, it constitutes itself queen and converts
its Love in the creature into her very nature; but so much, that
she will feel her breath, heartbeat, motion, step, and the whole
of her being as incapable of doing nothing other than Love.
This wave of Love rises up to Heaven, without ceasing to
rain down on her, and storms her Creator, loving Him always,
because when a Good converts into one’s nature, one feels the
need to repeat the Good received, as an act that constitutes
her Life. If she Adores, she will feel her nature changed
into Adoration; hence, in everything will she feel Profound
Adoration to her Creator burst out from within her. If she
Repairs, she will feel a surge to track down all the offenses
in order to place her Reparation. In sum, My Will, with Its
Creative Strength, does not leave a single void, and knows how
to convert into her nature everything that the creature does in
It. See what difference between the one who Lives in My Will and possesses It as operating Life, and one who recognizes It
as virtue, and maybe in the most sorrowful circumstances of
life, but in everything else it is as if It did not exist for her.
“Now I want to tell you another consoling surprise:
when the creature decides, with unmovable firmness, to Live
in Our Volition, Our satisfaction is so great, that what We
must do at the moment of death—to confirm the creature in
the good in which she dwells… Indeed, You Must Know
that everything she has done in life—prayers, virtues, pains
suffered, good works—serve to form Our little Divine Life
in her soul. Not a Blessed enters into Heaven if he does not
possess this Divine Life, according to the good he has done.
Insofar as they have Loved Me and Fulfilled My Will, so will
they possess It—some smaller, some greater; because True
Happiness, True Joys, must be possessed from within. So,
each of them will possess their God, inside and outside of
themselves, giving them ever new Joys; so much so, that if,
upon dying, souls are not filled up to the brim with Love and
Will of Mine, I confirm them, yes, but they do not enter into
Heaven; I send them to Purgatory, to fill these voids of My
Love and of My Will by dint of pains, of longing, of sighs.
And when they have filled themselves completely, in such a
way that they now appear as fully transformed into My Love
and into My Will—then do they take flight toward Heaven.
“Now, for the one who no longer wants to do her will,
but only Mine, We do not want to wait until that moment;
Our Love leads Us with an irresistible force to anticipate the
Confirmation of the Good and the converting of Our Love and
of Our Will into her own nature. Therefore she will feel that
My Love and My Will are hers; she will feel My Life more
than her own, but with what difference from those who are
Confirmed at the moment of death! These will no longer grow
in good, their merits are finite; while in the others My Will
shall grow always, the merits do not end; rather, they will have Divine Merits. As they continue to Love Me and to Live in My
Will, so will they know Me more; and I Love them more and
increase their Glory. I can say that I run in each of their acts, to
give it My Kiss, My Love, to recognize it as My own, and give
it the Value, the Merit, as if I Myself had done it.
“Ah! you cannot comprehend what We feel toward the
one who Lives in Our Will; how We Love her and want to
make her content in everything. Because in her We find the
purpose of Creation realized; all the Glory that all things
should give Us, centralized in her; and, what’s more, Our
Fulfilled Will is everything for Us.”
Fiat!!!
