The Chaplet of Seven Sorrows

Also known as the Dolores Rosary. This is a meditation on the seven sorrows throughout the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The seven sorrows are:

  • The First Sorrow
    The Prophecy of Simeon
    When Mary and Joseph present the infant Jesus in the temple, Simeon predicts that a “sword” (of sorrow) will pierce Mary’s soul.
  • The Second Sorrow
    The flight into Egypt
    When King Herod orders the death of all male children age two or younger, Mary and Joseph flee to Egypt with the infant Jesus.
  • The Third Sorrow
    The Child Jesus Lost in the Temple
    Mary and Joseph search for the child Jesus for three days, finding Him at last — after agonizing sorrow — in the temple.
  • The Fourth Sorrow
    Mary meets Jesus carrying the cross
    As Jesus makes His way to Calvary, condemned to crucifixion, He meets His mother, Mary. He is bruised, derided, cursed and defiled and her sorrow is absolute as Jesus drags His own cross up the hill of His crucifixion.
  • The Fifth Sorrow
    Mary at the foot of the cross
    Mary stands near her dying Son unable to minister to him as He cries “I thirst.” She hears Him promise heaven to a thief and forgive His enemies. His last words, “Behold your mother,” charge us to look on Mary as our mother.
  • The Sixth Sorrow
    Mary receives the body of Jesus
    Jesus is taken down from the cross and His body is placed in Mary’s arms. The passion and death are over, but for His mother, grief continues. She holds His body in her arms.
  • The Seventh Sorrow
    Mary witnesses the burial of Jesus
    The body of Jesus is laid in the tomb. The most tragic day in history ends, Mary alone in sorrow, awaiting the Resurrection.
