You know, every time I think about my sorrows and I run for comfort to Our Lady of Sorrows, I feel very small and helpless thinking that her sorrows was the heaviest of all. You may not be able to feel this because you are a man, but imagine if you are a mother seeing your son carrying a heavy cross towards his death, and being mocked around by people on the way, and to be hanged naked for the public to see (Note. Jesus Christ was hanged naked on the cross as their way of humiliating him, but Our Church would not do that in his replica, so he is partially covered.) I had a trying time with my children. My girl was diagnosed with a malignant bone cancer at age 10 called "osteosarcoma". She lost her left leg, underwent a chemotherapy , rehab, and now walks with an artificial leg. My son had a brain surgery caused by aneurysm; a portion of his brain was removed damaged by internal bleeding, and now half of his body is semi-paralyzed causing him to limp. Added to this I had a husband who was emotionally, physically, and verbally abusive, who was bitter to me when these things happened. On these ordeals I run to Our Lady of Sorrow for comfort. Now my children are both accountants, my boy a CPA, and work with big oil companies here in Houston and I am free. My sorrows were very little compared to that of Our Mother Mary.
Thanks for sharing your experiences. I'm sorry you've had such a difficult life, On the plus side, you must be very happy to see your children succeed even though they had to go through these great difficulties.
I can't imagine what The Blessed Mother of God had to go through in order to allow Her innocent Son be sacrificed for us. All I know is that She is worthy to be called The Mother of God.
