Contact Privately Our Lady of Sorrows September 15th, 2009 Listen Now Our Lady suffered with her Son. She, too, felt the blows, the beatings, the nails. To one who loves more, the more they feel the pain of their beloved. While every mother feels the pain of her children, Mary has full of grace, holy, and with perfect love. Thus, with a perfect love of her Son, she felt his pain more. Knowing this, we should accept our pains and offer them up for the salvation of souls.

Those works are not just any acts of love, but must be superior than the acts of love by an unbeliever.
