Today, Friday after 1st Passion Sunday, and a 1st Friday this year, we commemorate Our Lady of the Seven Sorrows.
Today, priests can say the Mass of Our Lady of Sorrows, with counter-intuitive white vestments, a Gloria and other aspects usually abandoned during Passiontide. It is a striking liturgical moment. I will say this Mass in today’s live stream at Noon, CDT.
Some time ago, I wrote a series of reflections on the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin. I invite you to have a look. Our Lady of Sorrows Project
