Describes Our Lady's Seven Sorrows, relating them to our own spiritual life. Tells why God permitted her sorrows, and describes the immensity of them, including their characteristics. Explains how Our Lady rejoiced in her sorrows, and demonstrates how the Church puts the sorrows before us. Gives a detailed examination of each sorrow culminating in the crucifixion and burial of Our Lord. Helps to build devotion to Our Lord by understanding the sorrows of His Mother -- and experience shows that we never advance more rapidly in love of the Son than when we travel by the Mother. Whoever is growing in devotion to the Mother of God is growing in all good things. Perfect for Lent. Similar to the booklet Devotion to the Sorrowful Mother. Imprimatur. Written by Fr Frederick William Faber. 405 pages.
