This lent I have decided to read about the seven sorrows of Mary. I feel this is what God is leading me to focus on this lent season. It has been a difficult season for me so maybe this will help me to focus on the suffering Mary went through. I also have a CD called Praying the seven sorrows with the blessed Virgin Mary that I will also be praying. I picked this up at the Catholic Women's conference in San Antonio last fall. Amazing conference with over 2,000 Catholic women there. Can't wait for this years conference. Praying I learn more about Mary's suffering during lent and to learn to rejoice in my own sufferings.
More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit which has been given to us. Romans 5:3-5
