Series 3, Ep. 53: The Seven Sorrows of Our Blessed Mother
The Daily Decade for the Commemoration of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary is about the perfection of Our Lady’s bearing of sorrow in her life, and the role her Seven Principal Sorrows occupy in her life, her sainthood, and her queenship, and how they relate to the Christian understanding of suffering.
God love you!
It is Lent! Remember St. Thomas Aquinas definition of “effeminicacy” when you shrink from your mortifications:
Perseverance is deserving of praise because thereby a man does not forsake a good on account of long endurance of difficulties and toils: and it is directly opposed to this, seemingly, for a man to be ready to forsake a good on account of difficulties which he cannot endure. This is what we understand by effeminacy, because a thing is said to be “soft” if it readily yields to the touch… properly speaking an effeminate man is one who withdraws from good on account of sorrow caused by lack of pleasure, yielding as it were to a weak motion.Summa II.II:138,1
