Describes Our Lady's Seven Sorrows, relating them to our own spiritual life. Tells why God permitted her sorrows, and describes the immensity of them, including their characteristics. Explains how Our Lady rejoiced in her sorrows, and demonstrates how the Church puts the sorrows before us. Gives a detailed examination of each sorrow, culminating in the crucifixion and burial of Our Lord. Helps build devotion to Our Lord through an explanation of the sorrows of His Mother—experience shows that we never grow more rapidly in the love of the Son than when we travel by the Mother. Whoever is grows in devotion to the Mother of God grows in all good things. Perfect for Lent. Similar to the booklet Devotion to the Sorrowful Mother. Imprimatur.

Frederick William Faber lived from 1814-1863 and grew up in Westmorland, England. Though he held to Calvinism in his youth, Frederick had given it up 1837, when he became a fellow of the National Scholars Foundation. He wrote many hymns, poems and other works, including Faith of Our Fathers, The Pilgrims of the Night, The Eternal Father, All for Jesus, Spiritual Conferences, and The Foot of the Cross.
Frederick Faber also founded the Wilfridian religious community at St. Wilfrid s, with John Henry Newman as the eventual superior when the order merged with the Oratory of St. Philip Neri. He died on September 26, 1863.
