PODCAST | At the Foot of the Cross with Mary

[ View Transcript ]

In this podcast, Msgr. Fred Dolan reflects on Our Lady, the Woman of Sorrows, and how contemplating her during the Passion of her Son and at the foot of the Cross helps all of our worries and sufferings to pass away.

Our Lady of Sorrows places us at her side before Jesus on the Cross to help us mature in our share in the mission of her Son. Bringing us to the Cross means helping us to face up to the difficulties of life, since learning how to deal with suffering is a major step in our personal growth. And, it means sharing in the mission of the redemption of Christ, which gives great depth to the purpose of our lives.

As we celebrate the feasts of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross (September 14) and Our Lady of Sorrows (September 15), Fr. Fred invites you to also place yourself at the foot of the Cross:

  • Ask yourself: How do I handle difficulties? Do I dig deeper to find its deeper meaning?
  • Contemplate the great miracles of Jesus and see how most of them were messy.
  • Consider: If we don’t have the Cross, what are we left with?
  • Ask for the grace of great serenity, joy, and efficacy in your mission to co-redeem with Christ.
