And Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, "Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign that is spoken against (and a sword will pierce through your own soul also), that thoughts out of many hearts may be revealed." (Luke 2: 34-35).
This devotion was instituted in the 13th century in honor of the Seven Sorrows the Blessed Virgin Mary endured by her Divine Son. It is practiced upon a Chaplet made up of seven times seven beads, each section of seven beads are divided from the rest by larger or different beads, representing the seven principal sorrows of her life.
The center of the chaplet is the heart of the Seven Sorrows and the medal is Our Lady of Sorrows. On the reverse is the depiction of the crucifixion. The center and the medal are solid bronze, hand cast from vintage originals.
The chaplet is available in my Etsy shop.
