Gift of the Queen of Sorrows


“Eucharistic Heart of Jesus,
reign over the afflicted;
become their consolation
through this consecrated Bread,
the gift of the Queen of Sorrows.”

Fr. Mateo Crawley-Boevey


Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows
September 15
The Seven Sorrows of Mary:
* at the prophecy of Simeon (Luke 2:35);
* at the flight into Egypt (Matt 2:13);
* having lost the Holy Child at Jerusalem (Luke 2:48);
* meeting Jesus on His way to Calvary;
* standing at the foot of the Cross (John 19:25);
* Jesus being taken from the Cross;
* at the burial of Christ.


  1. There is such tremendous consolation in knowing Our Mother knows the sorrow in a mother's heart. May God bless you today!

  2. Indeed, Barbara: what we do, where would we be - without the love and model of our dearest Blessed Mother. I am fondly remembering that my initial contact with you was in asking you to make a couple of Seven Sorrows Chaplets for me. ;-)
