Our Lady of Sorrows
Blessed Basile Moreau dedicated the Family of Holy Cross, including the sisters, brothers, and priests, to Mary, Our Lady of Sorrows. In the words of the Constitutions, "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."
In this spirit, Fr. Luc-Franck Jean Pierre, C.S.C., reflects particularly how Our Lady of Sorrows is precisely also Our Lady of Hope.
