MEMORIAL OF OUR LADY OF SORROWS

She’s with him

Being a strong companion or having great compassion is essential for discipleship. Mary had both. Notice the "com-" prefix of those qualities, which means "with." Under the title Our Lady of Sorrows, Mary is the first witness of the church and stood with Jesus through his pain and glory—his life, death, and Resurrection. The church uses "sorrows" here not so that we would be sad and weighed down but to lift up what it means to really be "with" another person and to share their joy and sorrow deeply. Mary continues to stand alongside us. How do you experience Mary’s companionship and compassion in your own life?

Today’s readings:

1 Timothy 3:14-16 (445); John 19:25-27 or Luke 2:33-35 (639).

"Woman, behold, your son."
