Amidst her glory as the Mother of Jesus, the life of Mary was one of both great sorrow and triumph. In The Seven Sorrows of Mary, Brother Joel Giallanza, C.S.C., offers a contemporary spirituality of this traditional devotion, highlighting seven moments of suffering in Mary’s life, from Jesus’ infancy to his death on Golgotha. Giallanza demonstrates how, through her strength in these moments, she is a model for us when our lives are consumed with grief. In this practical and devotional approach, he teaches how Our Lady of Sorrows is also a guide for us in our own struggles, however difficult, as we aim to be closer to her Son.
Brother Joel Giallanza, C.S.C., is a member of the Moreau Province of the Congregation of Holy Cross and the author of several books. He serves as administrative assistant to the provincial of the Moreau Province and is also a spiritual director who offers retreats on continuing formation and the spiritual life.
