Mater Dolorosa – Mother of Sorrows


Jesus Christ Himself revealed to the Blessed Veronica da Binasco, that He is, as it were, more pleased in seeing His Mother compassionated than Himself; for thus He addressed her: “My daughter, tears shed for My Passion are dear to Me; but as I loved My Mother Mary with an immense love, the meditation of the torments which She endured at My death is even more agreeable to Me.”

      Wherefore the graces promised by Jesus to those who are devoted to the dolors of Mary are very great. Pelbart relates that it was revealed to St. Elizabeth, that after the assumption of the Blessed Virgin into heaven, St. John the Evangelist desired to see Her again. The favor was granted him; his dear Mother appeared to him, and with Her Jesus Christ also appeared; the saint then heard Mary ask Her Son to grant some special grace to all those who are devoted to Her dolors. Jesus promised Her four principal ones:

1st, that those who before death invoked the divine Mother in the name of Her sorrows should obtain true repentance of all their sins.

2nd, that he would protect all who have this devotion in their tribulations, and that He would protect them especially at the hour of death.

3rd, that He would impress upon their minds the remembrance of His Passion, and that they should have their reward for it in heaven.

4th, that He would commit such devout clients to the hands of Mary, with the power to dispose of them in whatever manner She might please, and to obtain for them all graces that She might desire.

One comment on “Mater Dolorosa – Mother of Sorrows

  1. One of my most favorite devotional prayer books. You feel as if you were there during the Passion of Our Lord and His Mother. This book is a must during Lent and for the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows.
