Remembering Our Lady of Sorrows!

One thing I love about homeschooling is that I can focus our learning around feast days of our church!  Well September is a wonderful month to celebrate our Blessed Mother as her birthday and Our Lady of Sorrow's feast day occurs.

This September my son and I spent some time learning about Our Lady of Sorrows to honor our Blessed Mother on her feast day of September 15th!

This year was the first year I introduced my five year old to Our Lady of Sorrows for the first time.  As we have learned about our Lord's sacrifice over this past Lenten and Easter season, I felt my son was ready to begin understanding how our Blessed Mother had also suffered with her son!

I simply introduced my son to Mary's seven sorrows.  We talked about each one and then we made a heart shaped brownie and, using toothpicks and paper, we "pierced" the heart with our Lady's seven sorrows.

If you would like a copy of these swords with Mary's Seven Sorrows on them you can grab them here for free!

Remember there is a beautiful devotion to Mary's Seven Sorrows.  This link provides you with a beautiful prayer you can say with your family to honor our Blessed Mother every September!

Blessings to you and yours,
