Our Lady of Sorrows

Perhaps someone will say: "Had [Mary] not known before that [Jesus] would die?" Undoubtedly.  "Did she not expect him to rise again at once?"  Surely.  "And still she grieved over her crucified Son?"  Intensely...

...He died in body through a love greater than anyone had known.  She died in spirit through a love unlike any other since his.

--St. Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153)
