The Rosary of Seven Sorrows Of Our Lady

The Servite Rosary or the Chaplet of Seven Sorrows is a Rosary based prayer commemorates the Seven Sorrows Of Our Blessed Virgin Mary.

The Chaplet of Seven Sorrows was approved through the grant of indulgences by Pope Benedict XII, Pope Clement XII and Pope Clement XIII.

Mother Mary identified herself as Our Lady of The Word to the Visionaries and instructed them “One must meditate on the Passion of Jesus, and on the deep sorrows of His Mother. One must recite the Rosary every day and also the Rosary of the Seven Sorrows of Mary, to obtain the favour of repentance.”  These apparitions occurred in Kihebo, Rwanda between 1982-1983.

The Rosary of Seven Sorrows may be recited as a whole in a day or each sorrow may be recited each day over a week.
