Mater dolorosa

Welcome to My Green Vermont - A Blog by Eulalia Benejam Cobb.

I haven\’t thought of Our Lady of Sorrows in a long time. But in these soul-wrenching days, when the distress both in me and around me has drained words of their meaning, I find myself turning to the Mater dolorosa, that image of the Divine Feminine onto which humanity has, for more than a thousand years, projected its longing for consolation. Whatever your own source of solace, may you find strength, hope, and ease in this bleak summer of 2020.

  1. One is more than enough. This preoccupation with mystical numbers has always bothered me. 7, 12, 44… not me at all. But then, I'm not in charge.I'm glad Mary is there.

  2. Sending love, Lali. It seems ironic that we are having a more cheerful winter, and your summer is so bleak, when the seasons usually bring the opposite emotions.
