Today is the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, on which we recall the suffering and sorrow of Mary. She is venerated as a companion to those who suffer, and as an intercessor in times of our need.
Suffering and sorrow is part of being human. Yet no matter how dark things can seem, you are never alone in your pain. We always have Christ, our most Faithful Companion, and through him his Mother, Mary, and ours too.
