We celebrate on September 15th the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, the patronesse chosen by Blessed Basil Moreau for the Congregation of Holy Cross. It is Fr. Paul-Elie Cadet who presided Mass this morning.
« There stood by the cross of Jesus his mother Mary, who knew grief and was a Lady of Sorrows. She is our special patroness, a woman who bore much She could not understand and who stood fast. To Her many sons and daughters, whose devotions ought to bring them often to Her side, She tells much of this daily cross and its daily hope. » (Holy Cross Constituions, 8, 120)
