Mater Dolorosa

(Mother of Sorrows)

 

The Blessed Virgin Mary grants seven graces to the souls who honor her daily
by saying seven Hail Mary's and meditating on her tears and dolors (sorrows).
The devotion was passed on by St. Bridget.


HERE ARE THE SEVEN GRACES:

 

  1. I will grant peace to their families.

     

  2. They will be enlightened about the divine mysteries.

     

  3. I will console them in their pains and I will accompany them in their work.

     

  4. I will give them as much as they ask for as long as it does not oppose the adorable will of my divine Son or the sanctification of their souls.

     

  5. I will defend them in their spiritual battles with the infernal enemy and I will protect them at every instant of their lives.

     

  6. I will visibly help them at the moment of their death, they will see the face of their Mother.

     

  7. I have obtained from my divine Son, that those who propagate this devotion to my tears and dolors, will be taken directly from this earthly life to eternal happiness since all their sins will be forgiven and my Son and I will be their eternal consolation and joy.

St. Simon of Trent, M. (d. 1475)

 

 From the Sacred Liturgy: Auferte gentem perfidam credentium de finibus 

(Take the faithless tribe from the borders of the believing)

 

The case of St. Simon of Trent, came before the court of Pope Sixtus IV. He commissioned the greatest and most famous professor of law at that time, Panvino, to serve as Chief Justice. Assisted by six cardinals, who confirmed the sentence. 

The court officially stated:

The Hebrews killed the little boy Simon, in order to obey a rabbinical religious law; their motive being to serve a most wicked piety and devotion by obtaining Christian blood for the celebration of Passover.

The records of this trial were originally kept in the secret archive of the Citadel of St. Angelo and were then transferred to the Vatican, where they are available for examination. They were disclosed by Pope Benedict XIV. Also Pope Clement XIV as legal counsellor for the Holy Office, before he became Pope, verified the murders of both St. Simon of Trent and St. Andreas of Rinn [remember St. Dominguito del Val, Mártir] as cases of ritual murder almost 300 years later, in 1770. The boy [Simon] who was tortured to death at Trent was officially canonized by Pope Sixtus V. The Holy Infant Martyr, St. Simon of Trent's feast, is always celebrated on March 24th.
