Have you ever prayed the Seven Sorrows Rosary? It is so powerful!

The prayer dates back to the Middle Ages, but Our Lady of Kibeho re-introduced the Seven Sorrows Rosary to visionary Marie-Claire Mukangango in Kibeho, Rwanda in the 1980s.

Our Lady’s messages to Marie-Claire focused on an “urgent call to repentance”: “Repent, repent, repent! Convert while there is still time.”

Many graces result from praying this devotion, however, it should not replace the traditional rosary. Our Lady requests the faithful to pray the Seven Sorrows Rosary on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Here’s how to pray the Seven Sorrows Rosary:

Sign of the Cross: In the name of The Father, and The Son, and The Holy Spirit. Amen.

Introductory Prayer:
My God, I offer You this Rosary for Your glory, so I can honor your Holy Mother, the Blessed Virgin, so I can share and meditate upon her suffering. I humbly beg you to give me true repentance for all my sins. Give me wisdom and humility, so that I may receive all the indulgences contained in this prayer.

Act of Contrition: “O My God, I am heartily sorry…”
