Sorrows of Our Lady feast

The formal feast of the Our Lady of Sorrows originated by a provincial synod of Cologne in 1423. It designated the Friday after the third Sunday after Easter.  It had the title: Commemoratio angustiae et doloris B. Mariae V. Its object the sorrow of Mary during the Crucifixion and Death of Christ. Before the sixteenth century this feast was limited to the dioceses of North Germany, Scandinavia, and Scotland.

In 1482, the feast officially placed in the Roman Missal under the title of Our Lady of Compassion.  This highlighted the great love our Blessed Mother displayed in suffering with her Son. The word compassion derives from the Latin roots cum and patior which means “to suffer with”.

Our Lady of Sorrows procession in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn is a tradition begun in the 1940s.  It was started by immigrants from Mola di Bari, celebrating their hometown patroness. After 1600 it became popular in France and set for the Friday before Palm Sunday. By a Decree of 22 April 1727, Pope Benedict XIII extended it to the entire Latin Church, under the title “Septem dolorum B.M.V.” Pope John XXIII’s 1960 Code of Rubrics reduced it to the level of a commemoration.

Tradition of oils

The tradition of anointing with sacred oil is very old indeed. It is used in sacraments and also as a devotional practice. The sick person applies the oil and blesses themselves. As they do so, they are asked to pray to whomever the oil is dedicated to. The Irish blessings oils do not have miraculous power.  It is God who has the power to heal.  Applying the oil while praying are important ways for us to express our faith in God’s power. Moreover, by doing so we place our trust in God.

 The Irish Blessings oils are dedicated to the Holy Spirit, Our Lady and the saints. The oils come through prayer.  They are placed on their designated altars for a period of prayer before being sent out. The oils are of therapeutic grade.
