Happy Birthday Mother!
Today, Wednesday, September 8th, we celebrate liturgically the birth of our Blessed Mother, our Advocate, Co-Redemptrix and our Mediatrix of all Graces. As Passionists this is the day we begin our 7 days of prayer (a septenary) to prepare for the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows which we celebrate with great solemnity. Our Lady of Sorrows is the principal patroness of our Congregation. She is our teacher in how to keep alive a grateful memory of Christ Crucified.
If you would like to join us we will be praying a Seven Dolor rosary each day. There will also be a meditation during Vespers of the history and spirituality of Our Lady of Sorrows in the Passionist Congregation.
