Our Lady of Sorrows

Today is the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, "dedicated to Mary's suffering and grief in union with her Son. In her compassion for the sufferings of her Son, she shows the depth of her love as Mother."(Illustrated Book of Mary) From Corinthians today we read, "Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, love is not pompous,it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails."
Our Lady is the perfect example of this capacity of love. Mary, give us as mothers one ounce of your dedication, one ounce of your compassion, one ounce of your love.
