I have written here about Our Lady of Sorrows and how she has affected me as a grieving mother. It was through this title that I really felt that Our Blessed Mother made herself known to me in a very personal way. It has deepened my relationship with her tremendously.
Out of that devotion has come a small prayer booklet that I have written especially for grieving mothers.
The booklet is a guide to praying the rosary of Our Lady of Sorrows with meditations on each sword of sorrow, specifically written for women who have lost children through miscarriage, stillbirth, or the death of a child of any age. It’s something I wish I had had when we experienced the losses of our own children.
It’s my hope that priests, bereavement counselors, and other people wishing to offer support for grieving mothers would share this book with them. I pray that it would bring comfort to their grieving hearts to know that the Mother of Our Lord desires to meet them in this terrible pain and give them the grace to endure it.
You can order the book on Amazon here. The kindle version will be released on the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, September 15th. I will be praying the chaplet with the accompanying meditations from the book live on my Facebook page that evening at 8 pm if you would like to join me there.
