 About the Book 

Blessed are they who weep with Jesus in His Passion. And with Mary in her sorrows. Theirs is the peace of souls washed clean by love and soothed by pity. They are comforted not only on earth but also in heaven. In Splendor of Sorrow Eddie DohertyMoreBlessed are they who weep with Jesus in His Passion. And with Mary in her sorrows. Theirs is the peace of souls washed clean by love and soothed by pity. They are comforted not only on earth but also in heaven. In Splendor of Sorrow Eddie Doherty styles himself the blindman, who realizes that without help he cannot understand the significance of important happenings in our Christian heritage. He calls upon his friends, the saints, to lead him back through time, and help him to see.With St. Martin, St. Francis, St. Michael, St. Thrse, St. Anthony, and a host of other angels and saints the author collapses time and space to make us witnesses of key events in the life of Our Lord and Our Lady, which Catholic tradition refers to as the seven sorrows of Mary. We see each sorrow and joy through the eyes of the Blindman who, finally, is able to weep.
