Our Lady of Sorrows
“Why, Mama, are you crying?”
This is the question that Fr. Michael Payyapilly asks at the Mass celebration of Mary honoring her 7 sorrows. It’s true, every mother cries for her children as Mary sorrowed at the crucifixion of her Son Jesus. So when we pray to her, she values our tears and brings them to her son for healing.
Another question should be: Why do we hurt her son by the careless ways of living?
Mary’s response is: I’m crying because you are not changing your ways that offend my son.
Let us pray to our Lady of Sorrows and thank her for always interceding on behalf of our constant tears.
