    Quote
    Our Lady’s parents were undoubtedly inspired and chose her first name accordingly. “Bitter Sea” [??? + ???] is the exact literal meaning of Mariam (MaR-YaM/???????). It seems and really is deeply appropriate, so I would argue, in the light of the Mystery of the scope (like that of a sea) of Our Lady’s bitterness (her hidden co-redemptive sufferings extending throughout her whole earthly life and most profoundly during the bitter Passion of Our Blessed Lord, her own Passion).

    Happy Feast of the 7 Sorrows of Our B.V.M.

  • Beautiful, the Prophet Jeremiah also implied it when he wrote of the sufferings of Mary Co-Redemptrix in these words, "To what shall I compare thee? or to what shall I liken thee, O daughter of Jerusalem? to what shall I equal thee, that I may comfort thee, O Virgin daughter of Sion? for great as the sea is thy destruction: who shall heal thee?" (Lam 2:13). It was, as it were, in a sea or ocean of bitterness and sorrow, that Mary our Immaculate Mother, being pierced by a sword at the foot of the Cross, obtained in tears and in pain, together with Christ, every grace we freely receive from Him through Her. Fr. Garrigou Lagrange says,  "Mary is the Eve of the New Testament and the Mother of all the faithful; but that is to be at the price of Her Firstborn; united to the Eternal Father She must offer His Son and Hers to death. It is for that purpose that Providence has brought her to the foot of the Cross. She is there to immolate Her Son that men may have life. … She becomes Mother of Christians at the cost of an immeasurable grief. … We should never forget what we have cost Mary. The thought will lead to true contrition for our sins. The regeneration of our souls has cost Jesus and Mary more than we can ever think.
    "Never will anyone who says his Rosary every day become a formal heretic ... This is a statement I would sign in my blood." St. Montfort, Secret of the Rosary. I support the FSSP, the SSPX and other priests who work for the restoration of doctrinal orthodoxy and liturgical orthopraxis in the Church. I accept Vatican II if interpreted in the light of Tradition and canonisations as an infallible declaration that a person is in Heaven. Sedevacantism is schismatic and Ecclesiavacantism is heretical.
