The feast commemorates the seven great sorrows which Mary lived in relation to Her Son, as they are recorded in the Gospels or through Tradition. Today we are invited to reflect on Mary's deep suffering:

  1. At the prophecy of Simeon: "You yourself shall be pierced with a sword - so that the thoughts of many hearts may be laid bare." (Luke 2:35).
  2. At the flight into Egypt; "Get up, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt." (Mt 2:13).
  3. Having lost the Holy Child at Jerusalem; "You see that your father and I have been searching for you in sorrow." (Luke 2:48).
  4. Meeting Jesus on his way to Calvary
  5. Standing at the foot of the Cross; "Near the cross of Jesus there stood His mother." (John 19:25).
  6. Jesus being taken from the Cross 
  7. At the burial of Christ. Happy feast day To Our Lady Of Sorrows Sagalla Parish Mother most Sorrowfull, Pray for us.
