This handmade chaplet bracelet honors our Sorrowful Mother. The Mater Dolorosa medal is hand cast in bronze from an original vintage piece. A beautiful Sacred Heart image is on the reverse side of the medal. The Ave beads are beautiful black faceted glass beads representing the black garments given to the Seven Holy Founders by Our Lady asking them to wear them in memory of her Dolours and Passion of her only Son. A small cross is attached to the clasp as a reminder to pray for courage and to bear our cross as Christ did.
As you meditate on the Seven Sorrows of the Most Holy Virgin and pray this chaplet may you find comfort in the tears that Mary shed and know that she is always with you.
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:
I will grant peace to their families.
They will be enlightened about the divine mysteries.
I will console them in their pains and I will accompany them in their work.
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.
I will defend them in their spiritual battles with the infernal enemy and I will protect them at every instant of their lives.
I will visibly help them at the moment of their death, they will see the face of their Mother.
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.
