Our Lady of Sorrows

From $76.00

A beautiful work of sacred art in the oldest and most venerated Marian devotion: Our Lady of Sorrows. This devotion honors the sorrow of the Mother of Jesus. Mary, as Mother, was at the foot of the cross and is contemplated there, suffering. The sacred image of Our Lady of Sorrows is finely rendered on canvas by the skillful hands of our artist with an original artistic technique, using the best materials in a totally handmade creation process.This beautiful painting is a reminder of the pain and sorrows of the Virgin, our Mother, and how she endured them, with strength, with tears from a heart broken by pain but full of love for Jesus.

Description

Our Lady of Sorrows

Our Lady of Sorrows, or Mater Dolorosa, is the title given to the Blessed Virgin Mary in reference to the sufferings she endured as the Mother of Jesus. It is the most universal of all Marian titles, since it is not linked to an apparition, but recalls the pains that the Mother of Jesus suffered.

Christian piety has collected Our Lady’s sorrows and speaks of the “seven sorrows”. The first, just forty days after the birth of Jesus, is Simeon’s prophecy that speaks of a sword that will pierce her heart (see Lk 2:35).

The second sorrow is the flight to Egypt to save her Son’s life (see Mt 2:13-23). The third sorrow, those three days of anguish when the boy remained in the temple (see Lk 2:41-50). The fourth sorrow, when Our Lady meets Jesus on the way to Calvary (see Jn 19:25).

The fifth sorrow of Our Lady is the death of Jesus, seeing her son there, crucified, naked, dying. The sixth sorrow, Jesus’ descent from the cross, dead, when she takes Him in her arms as she held Him in her arms more than thirty years before in Bethlehem.

The seventh sorrow is Jesus’ burial. Thus, Christian piety follows this path of Our Lady who accompanies Jesus. It is good for me, late in the evening, when I pray the Angelus, to pray these seven sorrows as a remembrance of the Mother of the Church, how the Mother of the Church gave birth to us all with so much pain.
