Our Lady of Sorrows

Mary, like many mothers before her and since, had to go through the suffering of having her own son fall victim to the world's twisted cycle of violence, oppression, and war.

Women bear a disproportionate share of the injustice and suffering we human beings insist on making for ourselves. Just as Mary became the path of the Word into the world, so Our Lady of Sorrows can be a path for us to share in God's compassion for all the suffering women and mothers of our world.
