Our Lady of Sorrows: "Love"

... bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
-- 1 Cor 12:31-13:13

Jesus is recognized as the long-expected Messiah, the "light to the nations" and the "glory of Israel", but also "a sign that is spoken against". The sword of sorrow predicted for Mary announces Christ's perfect and unique oblation on the cross that will impart the salvation God had "prepared in the presence of all peoples".
--CCC 529
