The purpose of the Devotion of the Seven Sorrows is to promote union with the sufferings of Christ through union with the special suffering that Our Lady endured because she was the Mother of God. By uniting ourselves with both the Passion of Christ and His holy Mother, we enter into Jesus' Heart and honor Him greatly; He is more honored because we have so honored His Mother.
Learn about the graces and benefits of this great Devotion of the Seven Sorrows, as Fr. Thomlison goes deeper into each of the seven mysteries, and brings the retreatants to see the love in Mary's Immaculate Heart which suffers in union with her son.
