This post explains what is the Devotion To The Seven Sorrows And The Seven Graces Granted By The Holy Virgin Mary to those who practice this devotion.

The feast of Our Lady Of The Seven Sorrows is celebrated each September 15.

The Holy Virgin Mary grants seven graces to the souls who honor Her daily by meditating on Her tears and sorrows. This devotion was passed on by Saint Bridget.

Here are the SEVEN GRACES:

1. I will grant peace to their families;
2. They will be enlightened by the divine mysteries;
3. I will console them in their pains and I will accompany them in 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 the spiritual battles with the infernal enemy and I will protect them at every instant in 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 (This Grace) 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.

Here are the SEVEN SORROWS:

1. The prophecy of Simeon (St Luke 2:34,35)
2. The flight into Egypt (St Matthew 2:13,14)
3. The loss of the Child Jesus in the temple (St Luke 2:43-45)
4. The meeting of Jesus and Mary on the Way of the Cross (St Luke 23,27-31)
5. The Crucifixion and Death of Jesus (St John 19, 25-27)
6. The taking down of the Body of Jesus from the Cross (St Matthew, 27, 57-59)
7. The burial of Jesus (St John 19, 40-42)

What to do for a good devotion:

Pray one “Hail Mary” daily and meditate each of the Seven Sorrows: 
Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with Thee. Blessed are Thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

One can also meditate each sentence of the “STABAT MATER”:
1. The grieving Mother stood weeping beside the cross where her Son was hanging.
2. Through her weeping soul, compassionate and grieving, a sword passed.
3. O how sad and afflicted was that blessed Mother of the Only-begotten!
4. Who mourned and grieved, the pious Mother, looking at the torment of her glorious Child.
5. Who is the person who would not weep seeing the Mother of Christ in such agony?
6. Who would not be able to feel compassion on beholding Christ’s Mother suffering with her Son?
7. For the sins of his people she saw Jesus in torment and subjected to the scourge.
8. She saw her sweet offspring dying, forsaken, while He gave up his spirit.
9. O Mother, fountain of love, make me feel the power of sorrow, that I may grieve with you.
10. Grant that my heart may burn in the love of Christ my Lord, that I may greatly please Him.
11. Holy Mother, grant that the wounds of the Crucified drive deep into my heart.
12. That of your wounded Son, who so deigned to suffer for me, I may share the pain.
13. Let me sincerely weep with you, bemoan the Crucified, for as long as I live.
14. To stand beside the cross with you, and to join you in your weeping, this I desire.
15. Chosen Virgin of virgins, be not bitter with me, let me weep with thee.
16. Grant that I may bear the death of Christ, share his Passion, and commemorate His wounds.
17. Let me be wounded with his wounds, let me be inebriated by the cross and your Son’s blood.
18. Lest I be set afire by flames of death, Virgin, may I be defended by you, on the day of judgement.
19. Christ, when it is time to pass away, grant that through your Mother I may come to the palm of victory.
20. When my body dies, grant that to my soul is given the glory of paradise. Amen.
