A Mother’s Tears: A Retreat Guide on Our Lady of Sorrows

Not sure how to use this retreat guide?

Nothing compares with what Mary had to go through during our Lord’s passion: She stood by, helpless, watching Jesus being condemned unjustly, mocked, scourged and tortured, crowned with thorns, and crucified.

Could anything be more horrible for a mother than to witness that happening to her only son? Jesus, being God, could have preserved her from that. He could have brought her home to heaven before those events occurred, for Instance, as happened with St. Joseph. But he didn’t. Somehow, his love for his mother included allowing her to suffer, and to suffer deeply, painfully, terribly.

Why? That’s what this Retreat Guide, A Mother’s Tears: A Retreat Guide on Our Lady of Sorrows, will delve into.

  1. Just absolutely wonderful and filled with an abundance of profound wisdom and Truth. Thank you. I’ll have to watch it several times to get the most out of all that was taught.

  2. Wow! Okay, so this is my first retreat experience with you. So cool! It feels like my life is a movie and you’re giving me a chance to make a better ending of it than I would have, with out you. Really helpful. Hard questions. You make me think and realize the following: My fav pic of JPII does not show him with the five decade Rosary (as I ignorantly assumed : ), I’m close to our Blessed Mother, but not Totus Tuus close (better work on that), Pope Pius VII had it ROUGH (grateful for his Sorrowful Rosary, though), and perhaps my Sign of the Cross would be more meaningful if I intended “Jesus’ life be made manifest in my mortal flesh”. Thank you for mapping out the four responses to suffering. This is pretty deep. I like the power cord and the pipeline analogies. You got me thinkin’ about Indulgences, too. Thank you, Father, this is splendid!
