Our Lady of Sorrows – Luke 2: 33-35

The motherhood of Mary is steeped in mystery.  She suffers and is sorrowful, yet she is constant in fidelity and hope.  When I face challenges like suffering, I benefit from a good example.  In turning to Mary, I can always count on the value of her faithful witness.

Dear God, I seek to imitate the “yes” of Mary.  May your Holy Spirit grant me the courage of faith to be sustained in my sufferings and sorrows.
