"For with much wisdom comes much sorrow, and as knowledge grows, grief increases. "
Jesus the Logos/Incarnate Word the Uncreated Wisdom
"...Christ, the supreme Wisdom, has "builded His house" by taking man's flesh at His Incarnation,..."
Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers
God the Father had CHOSEN from eternity her beloved daughter and predestined her for a unique role in man's salvation.
God the Father sanctified & preserves her soul in the beginning to prepare a body to His Only Begotten Son.
Son of God has CHOSEN her earthly mother too, the young Jewish Woman in the words of Arch.Fulton Sheen "She is God's dream".
In the fullness of time,The most "pure womb" becomes the tabernacle of the Logos.
The Holy Spirit has CHOSEN too her SPOUSE from eternity, where does the the Third Person of the Most Holy Trinity dwells? who will be the fitting dwelling place for the Holy Spirit?
The scriptures said the Holy Spirit dwells in the heart of man.
Do you not know that you yourselves are God’s temple, and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? (1Corinthians3:16)
"Wisdom has built her house; she has hewn her seven pillars."
Is the Seven Sorrows perfectly offered by the Theotokos enough to house the Wisdom?
Is the Seven Sorrows correspond to the Seven Pillars of the Sevenfold gifts of the Holy Spirit?
Let's read the reflections of the Church Fathers and the Saints on the Sea of Sorrows of the Immaculate Mother.
THE BLESSED VIRGIN MOTHER'S LOVE FOR US
(THE TEARS AND DOLOURS OF THE MOTHER OF SORROWS)
How much sorrow did the Mother of God suffered to be called the Mother of Sorrows?
It is only appropriate to quote the sermon of the great salvific Doctor of the Church,
St. Alphonsus Di Liguori: “The Martyrdom of Mary Was Never Equaled”.
The words of the prophet Jeremias explain my meaning on this point:
To what shall I compare thee? or to what shall I liken thee, O daughter of Jerusalem?. . . for great as the sea is thy destruction; who shall heal thee? (Lam. 2:13)
No, the acuteness of the sufferings of Mary are not to be compared, even with those of all the (Catholic) martyrs united. "The Martyrdom of Mary," says Saint Bernard, "was not caused by the executioner's sword, but proceeded from bitter sorrow of heart." In other Martyrs torments were inflicted on the body; but Mary's sorrow was in her heart and soul, verifying in her the prophecy >of Simeon, Thy own soul a sword shall pierce. (Luke 2:35)
Arnold of Chartres writes that "whoever had been on Mount Calvary, to witness the great sacrifice of the Immaculate Lamb, would there have beheld two great altars, the one in the Body of Jesus, the other in the heart of Mary; for on that Mount, when the Son sacrificed His Body by death, Mary sacrificed her soul by compassion." So much so, says Saint Antoninus, that whereas other Martyrs sacrificed their own lives, the Blessed Virgin consummated her martyrdom by sacrificing the life of her Son, a life which she loved far more than her own, and which caused her to endure a torment which exceeded all other torments ever endured by any mortal on earth.
As a general rule, the sufferings of children are also the sufferings of their mothers who are present at and witness their torments.
Erasmus adds that "Mothers suffer more at the sight of the sufferings of their children than if the torments were inflicted on themselves."
as Saint Lawrence Justinian writes, "The heart of Mary, by compassion for her Son, became a mirror of His torments, in which might be seen, faithfully reflected, the spittings, the blows, the wounds, and all that Jesus suffered."
Richard of St. Lawrence says, "It is true, O Lord, that in the work of human redemption You did suffer alone, and that there was not a man that sufficiently pitied You; but there was a woman with You, and she was Your own Mother; she suffered in her heart all that You endured in Your Body."
Saint Bernadine of Sienna even says, that "the sufferings of Mary were such that had they been divided among all creatures capable of suffering, they would have caused their immediate death."
Here we must repeat the words of Jeremias: As the sea is all bitterness, and has not within its bosom a single drop of water which is sweet, so also was the heart of Mary all bitterness, and without the least consolation: Who shall heal you? Her Son alone could heal her and heal her wounds; but how could Mary receive comfort in her grief from her crucified Son, since the love >she bore Him was the whole cause of her Martyrdom?
Richard of St. Victor says, ''as no other creature loved God as Mary loved Him, so there was never any sorrow like Mary's sorrow."
She stood by the Cross. The Cross was the hard bed on which Jesus Christ had to die. Mary, who stood by its side, never turned her eyes from Him; she beheld Him all torn by the scourges, thorns, and nails; she saw that her poor Son, suspended by those three iron hooks, found no repose. She, as I have already said, would have desired to give Him some relief; she would have desired, at least, that He should have expired in her arms; but no, even this is forbidden her. "Ah, Cross!" she must have said, "restore me my Son; you are a gibbet for malefactors, but my Son is innocent." But wait, O sorrowful Mother; God's will is that the Cross should only restore you your Son when He has expired. Saint Bonaventure, considering the sorrow of Mary in the death of her Son, writes, that "no grief was more bitter than hers, because no son was as dear as her Son." Since, then, there never was a son more worthy than Jesus, nor any mother who ever loved as Mary loved, what sorrow can be compared with the sorrow of Mary?
My readers, let us be devout to the sorrows of Mary. Saint Albert the Great writes, that ''as we are under great obligations to Jesus Christ for His death, so also are we under great obligations to Mary for the grief which she endured when she offered her Son to God by death for our salvation." This the Angel revealed to Saint Bridget: he said that the Blessed Virgin, to see us saved, herself offered the life of her Son to the Eternal Father: a sacrifice which, as we have already said, cost her greater suffering than all the torments of the Martyrs, or even death itself. But the Divine Mother complained to Saint Bridget that very few pitied her in her sorrows, and that the greater part of the world lived in entire forgetfulness of them. Therefore she exhorted the Saint, saying: "Though many forget me, don't you, my daughter, forget me."
A sword piercing a heart in the actual sense would cause nothing but death, this sword and the other six to follow were actually so severe that she would have died each time she experiences it. Her love for God, her Son is so great that she would give her life for God and Jesus. Greater love than this no man hath, that a man lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13) This statement Jesus spoke would also apply to our Blessed Mother besides Himself. These seven sorrows could have actually cause her to expire.
For this purpose the Blessed Virgin herself appeared in the year 1239 to the founder of the Order of the Servites, or Servants of Mary, requested them to institute a religious order in remembrance of her sorrows; and this they did.
Our Blessed Mother confided to Bethe Petit, a humble Franciscan Tertiary on March 25, 1912, the following, “…To you I call myself the Mother of the Sorrowful Heart. This title, willed by my Son, is dear to me above all others. Accordingly, as it is spread everywhere, there will be granted graces of mercy, spiritual renewal and salvation.”* (Pieta Booklet, MLOR, LLC, Hickory Corners, MI.)
After reading several of the reflections of the Church Father and Saints we will come to realize that the Sorrowful & Immaculate Heart of Mary is the fitting "house for the Wisdom to fully dwells"
As Jesus the Son of God was given "flesh & blood" by Blessed Virgin Mary and so the Holy Spirit was "enflesh" united mystically to Her Immaculate Heart, in the very words of St.Kolbe Mary was "possessed" by the Holy Spirit.
Truly, "the highest heavens cannot contain God whom you carried in your womb"(Book of Kings)
Indeed, the Wisdom has 'HEWN" her seven pillars in the Sorrowful & Immaculate Heart of Mary.
