About the Book

Praise for The Seven Sorrows Bible Study for Catholics This book is a great integration of theology and every day living. I recommend it for all who want to bring new depth to their spirituality. It is rich in our Catholic tradition. - Reverend Robert Sims, STL, MA “ Fr. Bob” Beth Leonard offers a thought-provoking look in to the loving heart of our Blessed Mother.  A great way to deepen your appreciation for all that Mary does for us—and enhance your familiarity with Sacred Scripture, too! - Ken Ogorek, Evangelium Consulting Group, A beautiful book with many insights into the sorrowful heart of Our Blessed Mother and the Passion of Jesus.  This bible study opened my eyes and heart to see Mary in a different way in her unique role as mother of Jesus, bringing me deeper into the heart of Jesus and Mary.  - Sharon Teipen, Catholic Radio Indy “Participating in Beth Leonard’s Seven Sorrows of Mary Bible Study has given me a deep spiritual awakening! Her thoughtful insight leads us straight to the heart of Mary leading us closer to Jesus.” - Christine Moss Creator, co-host and author of Awaken to the B.E.S.T. The Seven Sorrows of Mary is a daily prayer that was handed down to us from Saint Bridget. Using these sorrows as our template, we find them in the New Testament writings and then trace them to Old Testament prophecies and accountings. You will be amazed at what Mary teaches us as we delve into the Word of God to uncover the clues to her mysterious sorrows. On the surface, Mary’s sorrows may seem like an exercise in remembering our Lord’s sacrifice, but Mary teaches us so much more through her perfect humility and unwavering faith. Our study will reveal the history and purpose of the sorrows and how we can use these teachings to aid in our daily struggles, more deeply root our position with Christ, and enhance our own Catholic tradition.
