Pilgrimage to the shrine of Our Lady of Sorrows in Cuenca (Spain), February 22nd of 2016.
In the afternoon of February 22nd, a few lay members of the Home of the Mother in Priego, went to the capital of Cuenca to visit the patroness of the Diocese, Our Lady of Sorrows.
There in the midst of a beautiful, natural setting, in a small hermitage-like shrine, our Lady welcomes all of her children that come to her looking for comfort and She does not let them leave without showing her love for them. We also went to go visit Our Lady to ask for her motherly help during this Lent, that she prepare our hearts to celebrate this Holy Week with a renewed spirit of conversion.
In middle of the silence and recollection, we presented our needs to our Lady and we united ourselves to her by praying the rosary. Through her intercession we asked the Lord to enlighten and strengthen our vocation of being Christians in today’s world.
