Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows

The feast day of Our Lady of Sorrows was this past Wednesday. Due to a busy household we didn't celebrate until Thursday evening. A store bought cake with some home made embellishments helped our lesson along.

Doug read from a small prayer card about the Sorrowful Mother and we discussed the Seven Sorrows of Mary. Doug's mom had joined us for dinner that night so there were seven of us total and we each removed a "sword" from the Heart of Mary and promised to do a small penance to ease her suffering.

O, Mary, help me to stand beside the Cross with you,
whose soul the sword of sorrow has pierced.
