A Collection including the Chaplet, Prayers, Litany, Hymn and Indulgences
In 2001, the Vatican recognized the authenticity of the apparition of Our Lady in Kibeho, in Rwanda, Africa-a peaceful, ordinary region at the time of the apparitions in 1981-1989. Our Lady urged all people, not just Rwandans, to pray the Rosary, and the Devotion to the Seven Sorrows. This occurred 13 years prior to the Rwandan genocide of over a million people in that region. Much earlier, God revealed to a fourteenth-century saint, Bridget of Sweden (1303-1373), that seven great benefits accrue to those who worship Jesus Christ by the devotion to the seven sorrows of His mother, Mary. Devotion to the sorrows of Mary consists of brief daily meditation and prayers in memory of each of seven sorrows she experienced during earthly life. The gifts received through this meditative prayer are peace in the family, enlightenment about divine mysteries, Mary's consolation in suffering and assistance in work. She will obtain for them as much as they ask, as long as it accords with the will of Christ and not impede sanctification. Mary will defend them in spiritual battles against Satan and protect them throughout life. She will visibly help them at the moment of death; they will see her face. Mary obtained from her Son that those who spread devotion to her seven sorrows will die with sins forgiven, meriting eternal life in Heaven where she will be their consolation and joy. This book includes the chaplet of the Seven Sorrows of Mary, beautiful illustrations of Our Lady's sorrows, with Scriptural passages for each. It offers a brief history of the devotion, and simple explanation of how to meditate. It includes other devotions, prayers, novena, litany and hymn honoring the Sorrowful Mother and explains graces and indulgences associated with the devotion. These prayers offer tremendous comfort and remedy in times of trial and enkindle true love for Jesus Christ.
