The Seven Sorrows of Mary Reflection


The month of September is dedicated to the Seven Sorrows of Mary, praying with the moments in Mary's life where she stood strong in the face of suffering, relying on her faith in her Son. I've posted a few coloring notes pages before (here) but wanted to do something to help my students pray with the Mater Dolorosa. So I created a little booklet with the Sorrows, their Scripture reference, and a short reflection to help connect it back to the reader's life. I'm also sharing a script that we used at a middle school prayer service where one student read the Scripture passage, we had a little quiet time, and then another student read the reflection.


These tools would work for personal prayer, a guide for Lectio Divina, a classroom study on the Seven Sorrows, or a time of group prayer.
