The Rosary of the Seven Sorrows is a devotion to Mary and Her suffering through the life and death of Her Son. This rosary is also known as the Servite Rosary which originated in the 13th century when seven noblemen from Florence Italy founded the order of the Servants of Mary of "Servites". In a vision Our Lady appeared to them holding black garments and said "You will found a new Order,and you will be my witness throughout the world. This is your name: Servants of Mary. This is your rule:that of Saint Augustine. And here is your distinctive sign: the black scapular, in the memory of my sufferings at the foot of the Cross."
This rosary is handmade and the Seven Sorrows medals and rosary center are hand cast in solid bronze from original vintage pieces.
As you meditate on the Seven Sorrows of the Most Holy Virgin and pray this rosary may you find comfort in the tears that Mary shed and know that she is always with you. This rosary is a reminder to pray for courage and to bear our cross a Christ did.
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.
