September is the Month of the Seven Sorrows of Mary. Hence, you are invited to join Bishop Earl Boyea as he meditates upon these sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary who shared in the suffering of her beloved son, Jesus Christ.
“Some of these episodes are found in the New Testament and others are conjectures,” explains Bishop Boyea, “We will examine then both direct and indirect references on Mary’s sorrow over her son’s life, passion and death.” The seven sorrows are:
• The prophecy of Simeon (Luke 2:25-35)
• The flight into Egypt (Matthew 2:13-15)
• Loss of the Child Jesus for three days (Luke 2:41-50)
• Mary meets Jesus on his way to Calvary (Luke 23:27-31; John 19:17)
• Crucifixion and Death of Jesus (John 19:25-30)
• The body of Jesus being taken from the Cross (Psalm 130; Luke 23:50-54; John 19:31-37)
• The burial of Jesus (Isaiah 53:8; Luke 23:50-56; John 19:38-42; Mark 15:40-47)
