The Seven Sorrows Bible Study for Catholics : What We Can Learn from Our Mother of Sorrows
Are Catholics given a bad rap when it comes to their knowledge of the Bible? We may not carry Bibles clutched in our hands, but years of repetition and discipline allow us to store our Bible in our own thoughts, memorized prayers, and beautiful traditions. With hesitation we may join a Bible Study, reluctantly opening the door marked "unfamiliar," but upon entering we will indeed find ourselves among the "familiar." Studying the Bible in its context helps us place our memorized stories into the timeline of Christ and explores the numerous New Testament verses that were revealed through Old Testament prophecies. The Seven Sorrows of Mary is a daily prayer that was handed down to us from Saint Bridget. Using these sorrows as our template, we find them in the New Testament writings and then trace them to Old Testament prophecies and accountings. You will be amazed at what Mary teaches us as we delve into the Word of God to uncover the clues to her mysterious sorrows. On the surface, Mary's sorrows may seem like an exercise in remembering our Lord's sacrifice, but Mary teaches us so much more through her perfect humility and unwavering faith. Our study will reveal the history and purpose of the sorrows and how we can use these teachings to aid in our daily struggles, more deeply root our position with Christ, and enhance our own Catholic tradition.
