Describes Our Lady's Seven Sorrows, relating them to our own spiritual life. Tells why God permitted her sorrows, and describes the immensity of them, including their characteristics. Explains how Our Lady rejoiced in her sorrows, and demonstrates how the Church puts the sorrows before us. Gives a detailed examination of each sorrow, culminating in the crucifixion and burial of Our Lord. Helps build devotion to Our Lord through an explanation of the sorrows of His Mother—experience shows that we never grow more rapidly in the love of the Son than when we travel by the Mother. Whoever is grows in devotion to the Mother of God grows in all good things. Perfect for Lent.
