The Seven Sorrows of Mary: A Meditative Guide
|Author: Giallanza, Joel|
Amidst her glory as the Mother of Jesus, the life of Mary was one of both great sorrow and triumph. In The Seven Sorrows of Mary, Brother Joel Giallanza, C.S.C., offers a contemporary spirituality of this traditional devotion, highlighting seven moments of suffering in Mary's life, from Jesus' infancy to his death on Golgotha. Giallanza demonstrates how, through her strength in these moments, she is a model for us when our lives are consumed with grief. In this practical and devotional approach, he teaches how Our Lady of Sorrows is also a guide for us in our own struggles, however difficult, as we aim to be closer to her Son.
