Tag: Our Lady
September 15th is the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows. According to an ancient tradition in the Church, we venerate the "seven sorrows of Our Lady," when perfectly united to her Son's sacrifice on the Cross, Mary lovingly shares in Jesus' self-giving for our redemption.
The hymn "Stabat Mater" describing Mary's sorrow at the foot of the Cross has been set to music countless times by composers over the centuries. Their renditions of this moving song can help you to accompany Our Lady on this Holy Saturday.
