Our Lady of Compassion/Our Lady of Sorrows - Video Seven Sorrows Rosary

The Feast of
Our Lady of Compassion


Though long a part of popular piety, the feast of Our Lady under the title "Our Lady of Compassion" was not added to the Missal until 1482. 

Especially promoted by the Cistercians and the Servites, it was widely celebrated throughout the Catholic Church on the Friday before Good Friday.  

This date shows the especial role of Mary in the Passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  

To further focus on Mary's  intense suffering during the passion and death of Jesus, in 1913, Pope Pius X changed the title of the feast day to "Our Lady of Sorrows" and firmly set the date to September the 15th, to follow the Exaltation of the Holy Cross.
