September 15 – Our Lady of Sorrows

ols“The painful pieces of Mary’s life help us to get through our own rough-edged moments. We see how she too questioned what was confusing and unclear, how she needed others to be with her in her pain, how she reflected on her experiences in order to find meaning. We also see how her faith sustained her, and how her son gave her the strength to endure. We discover that we are not alone in what is most difficult for us.”

Your Sorrow is My Sorrow, Hope and Strength in Times of Suffering | Joyce Rupp

COLLECT

O God, who willed that when You Son was lifted high on the Cross, his Mother should stand close by and share his suffering, grant that your Church, participating with the Virgin Mary in the Passion of Christ, may merit a share of his Resurrection.
