Today, Sept. 15th. is the Feast of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin
Traditionally, we commemorate these as being:
- The prophecy of Simeon
- The flight into Egypt
- The loss of Jesus in the temple
- Meeting Jesus as He carried His Cross on the way to Calvary
- Mary at the foot of the Cross
- The Body of Jesus being taken down from the Cross
- Jesus’ Body is laid in the sepulchre
Today would be a good time to ponder upon an d meditate on Our Lady’s Sorrows and what it means for us in the world today.
Excerpts from the Book of Truth:
- 4 January 2014 @ 1:50pm; Message 1010
“My child, in the lead up to the birth of my Son, the pangs were evident in all which befell us. I fled to Elizabeth for comfort, in the knowledge that she was blessed with insight, given to her by the Holy Spirit. I, and my beloved spouse, sought out this refuge of peace, at a time when we were so overwhelmed with the knowledge of what was to come.
When my time approached, every obstacle, planted by the spirit of evil, was placed before us, every step we took. Doors were slammed in our faces; people we knew shunned us and we were cast out into the wilderness. And so we ended up without a roof over our heads and in a shelter fit only for animals, while the Holy Messiah came into the world as a pauper. There were no ceremonies, no coronation, no acknowledgements. There were only a few people left to comfort me in my loneliness. But then, when my Son was born, all feelings of anxiety left me. All I felt was a love of the most Divine Presence. Peace finally reigned in my Heart.
By the Power of the Holy Spirit, help and comfort was sent to us, though they were few in number. … When it was made known that Jesus Christ, the Messiah promised to humanity, was born, the opposition began to mount. The vicious attack by Herod and all his servants, demonstrated how much the Presence of God puts fear into the hearts of evil men.
From that day forward, I became the protector of my Son and my beloved spouse, Joseph, organized our safety on many occasions after that. We spent many years fleeing from one place to another. So much opposition we faced – so much fear, so much hatred. That was our lot. The moment my Son was found at the age of twelve years preaching in the temple, we took Him into hiding.
And now that His Second Coming is imminent, every obstacle will be placed before His Arrival. Every Word out of the mouth of His prophet will be torn asunder and mocked. Only a handful of people will be privy to the Truth surrounding this Mission and many doors will be slammed in the faces of those who follow His instructions. This Mission is a lonely one for you, my child, and you are instructed to remain obedient in all things made known to you by God.
Help will be sent. Help will also cease when it is the Desire of my Son. While few are seen to follow this Mission, millions more believe in it completely. For the Word of God will always attract those of His, through the Power of the Holy Spirit.
The birth pangs have begun and the labour will not last too long. Soon the birth of a new beginning will dawn and then the Day of the Lord will finally arrive. Children, be at peace, for all of these things must come to pass before the Earth is purged of sin.
Your beloved Mother
Mother of Salvation”

“…After the exodus to Egypt, I found it difficult to relax and I remained alert to every potential threat or danger, which meant that I slept few hours at night. Even before my Son made Himself known, it was very clear to me the dangers He would have to face in the future. His Hands, always reaching out to people in love and friendship. As a boy, He drew many, although they had no idea Who He was. He also drew unwarranted criticism from friends and people He knew. He was bullied and laughed at and I was also snubbed by many. The presence of God drew the good as well as those with dark souls to our small family from the day my Son was born. My love for Him was very powerful. I loved Him for Who He was, but I also loved Him as a Mother and that love continues to this day.
I was somewhat overprotective of my Son and when I lost Him on the journey back from Jerusalem I was terrified. My sense of loss was felt in every part of me and I could not rest until I found Him. On that day, when I found Him speaking and preaching to the elders in the Temple, I realized from that moment on that I had only to serve Him and to be obedient to His every desire. …” https://missionofsalvation.com/message-1155/
This is from the point of view of Jesus, encountering His Mother on the Way of the Cross:
- 29 March 2012 @ 1:15pm; Message 0380
“…My most agonising moment was when I lay on the ground on My Side, having been kicked in the back again and saw My beloved Mother looking at Me.
She was heartbroken and had to be held up by two of My disciples.
I could only see her through the one remaining Eye and I could not bear to watch her torment. …” (Jesus)
What these Sorrows mean for us today
- 30 October 2014 @ 5:30pm; Message 1252
“My dear children, when you serve my Son in this life, it is fraught with difficulties. It is a simple task to follow Him in one way but, when you carry the Gift of the Holy Spirit within your soul, it will bring down, upon you, the wrath of the evil one and every enemy of my Son. This makes your journey along the path of Truth extremely hard. At every turn, you will be opposed even if you remain silent in your adoration of my Son.
Many who truly love my Son cannot understand when they are bullied by others, for no obvious reason. Or, when they are falsely accused of wrong- doing. This is because the Holy Spirit is the real presence of God and, therefore, this will never go unnoticed by the evil one, who will stop at nothing to cause you grief and distress. He, the evil one, will taunt you relentlessly and will do this either directly, or through the souls of those he manages to infest.
All of this pain, which you will not understand, is because of your devotion to Jesus Christ. Just as He endured ridicule, scorn and hatred so, too, will all those who serve Him. When you suffer in His Name on this earth you will, eventually, find lasting peace, love and joy in His Kingdom. Accept the Cross with dignity. Do not complain. Do not engage with those who show hatred towards you, lest your own hearts become filled with the same venom.
Hatred breeds hatred if you respond to it. Love, which comes from God, breeds love.
Show love to your enemies; pray for them; pity them. When you do, satan is powerless against you.

“My child, the Crucifixion of my Son’s Church on Earth has well and truly commenced and all the signs have begun to be seen. Just as my Son was nailed to the Cross, only one of His apostles stayed with Him to the end and so too, will few of His disciples on Earth, dare to be seen to defend His Mystical Body on Earth, as it is plundered, persecuted and then annihilated.
Very few of those who swore allegiance to my Son watched His scourging or walked alongside Him on the climb to Mount Calvary. I only had four loyal disciples – my cousin Mary; Martha; Mary Magdalene and John – to hold me up and help me in my agony as I had to witness my Son’s terrible torture. Many will follow my Son’s instructions, through these holy Messages for the world, but only a few will be brave enough to openly proclaim the Word of God during the Crucifixion of my Son’s Church on Earth.
My sorrow at this time is great as all that was foretold by me during the apparitions at La Salette and Fatima are now unfolding before you all, but many of you are blind. Those of you who dedicated hours before me at my most holy shrines must come and ask me, your Mother, to open your eyes to the Truth. You must ask me to consecrate your hearts and souls to my Son, otherwise you too will deny Him.
Your beloved Mother
Mother of Salvation”
