The Rosary of Seven Sorrows

We Magdalene Sisters love Immaculee Ilibagiza. She has inspired us through her writing and her life. I've recently begun praying the Rosary of the Seven Sorrows that Immaculee is promoting all over the globe, thanks to a suggestion from a dear friend. Though she broke into the public square by telling her story of surviving the Rwandan genocide and her experience of God through it all, Immaculee now believes it's her mission to spread the story of the apparition of Our Lady of Kibeho. In this apparition, the Blessed Virgin asked Marie Claire to spread the devotion of the Rosary of the Seven Sorrows which she had given to St. Bridget of Sweden centuries before.

This rosary is incredibly powerful, and is certainly something that our world needs right now. It is something that I need right now. These are just a few of the promises Our Lady made to Marie Claire:

*With the recittation of the Seven Sorrows Rosary, the hardest hearts shall change, if you pray it for yourself and for others.
*By the recitation of the Seven Sorrows Rosary, you shall be freed from obsessions and addictions
*This rosary when said from the heart, it will win us true repentance of our sins and free our souls from guilt and remorse.

I hope that you pray with me: Most merciful Mother, remind us always about the Sorrows of your son, Jesus.
