Splendor of Sorrow

The Seven Sorrows of the Mother of God

Regular price$9.95

Through a life of spectacular adventure and searing tragedy, Eddie Doherty came to see in the Seven Sorrows of the Mother of God how God’s light shines even in the sufferings of this world.

Styling himself in this book as the Blindman, who realizes that without help he cannot understand the events that make up our Christian heritage, Eddie calls upon his friends among the saints to lead him back through time and to help him “see.”

“Few books get into our lives. At best, for the most part, they get into our libraries. And now comes Eddie Doherty with a book that has Life, the fragrance of Truth, the warmth of the Trinity. He comes unobtrusively, never gets in the way, like incense before God’s altars, like everything holy. He comes with the Splendor of Sorrow. The book will be acclaimed for sheer literary genius by those who read much… it will, page by page, find shelter with Christ in the obscure chambers of their hearts and souls, as it opens up depths so far known only by God.” — Fr. Daniel M. Cantwell

“Doherty paints a pure and tender portrait of the woman who bore the Son of God, inspiring readers’ hearts and spirits.” — Therese J. Borchard, coeditor, I Like Being Catholic

“My friend, I am that Blindman… and so are you! At this late date in your soul’s life, it’s time for you to pick up this book and let it give you eyes to see. Let the Blindman awaken in you new gratitude for Jesus, Mary and the saints, who were energized so mightily by love of Him. Let the miracle of light that illuminates the Blindman reach into the darkest corners of your soul—and watch with him for the resurrection in your heart.” — John L. Barger, Sophia Institute
