One of my New Year's resolutions is to increase my devotion to the seven sorrows of Mary. All of us have sorrows in our lives. We mothers, especially, suffer for our children. We suffer from their little troubles when they are little children and from their big troubles when they are adults. A mom's sufferings will never end until the day she dies. So what a wonderful devotion for us to unite our sufferings for our children with the sufferings of Mary. Not did her soul "magnify the Lord" in his wonder and glory, but she magnified the Lord in His sufferings and death. What greater friend can a suffering soul have than the suffering Mother of God. And what a consolation to have her wonderful promises. Please spread this devotion among your family and friends that more souls might benefit from Mary's promises.
