Our Lady is often depicted under the title of OurLady of Sorrows. When we refer to Our Lady of Sorrows, we are remembering the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which are: 1) The prophecyof Simeon, 2) The flight into Egypt, 3) The loss of theChrist Child in Jerusalem, 4) Seeing Jesus on his wayto Calvary, 5) Standing at the foot of the Cross, 6) Jesus being taken from the Cross, and 7) The burialof Christ.A taste of Our Lady's sorrow is recorded by St. John the Evangelist, where he noted that She was atthe foot of the Cross (See John 19:25). Of course, St. John also tells us in his Gospel that Our Lord gaveOur Lady to us at the Crucifixion, prior to the deathof The Most Holy Redeemer, Jesus Christ (See John19:26-27).One popular Catholic devotion to Our Lady of Sorrows is to say seven Hail Marys in
commemorationof Her Sorrows. The Feast Day of Our Lady of Sorrows is every year on September 15.Recite the following prayers for 9 days:
 As we contemplate this Mother, whose heart a sword has pierced (cf.Luke 2:35  ), our thoughts go to all the suffering women in the world,suffering either physically or morally. In this suffering a woman'ssensitivity plays a role, even though she often succeeds in resisting suffering better than a man.It is difficult to enumerate these sufferings; it is difficult to call them all by name. We may recall her maternal care for her children, especially whenthey fall sick or fall into bad ways; the death of those most dear to her;the loneliness of mothers forgotten by their grown-up children; theloneliness of widows; the sufferings of women who struggle alone tomake a living; and women who have been wronged or exploited. Thenthere are the sufferings of consciences as a result of sin, which haswounded the woman's human or maternal dignity: the wounds of consciences which do not heal easily. With these sufferings too we must  place ourselves at the foot of the Cross." 
Pope John Paul II(Mulieris Dignitatem,21)
