Feast of the Seven Sorrows of Our Blessed Mother.

The Seven Sorrows (this painting has a slight variation)

1. The prophecy of Simeon that a sword would piece her soul.

2. The flight to Egypt

3. Losing of Christ in the Temple.

4. Meeting of her Beloved Son as He carried His cross.

5. Standing at the foot of the cross.

6. Christ is taken down from the cross and laid in her arms.

7. She sees her Son laid in the tomb.

(The variation puts the nailing to the cross in and removes the laying in the tomb).

The Chaplet of the Seven Sorrows.
