I always wonder how the commentaries upon the sorrows of Our Lady seem to forget the pain that Mary experienced from childhood upon seeing evil all around her and especially during the ministry of her son while most of her people rejected him. She definitely was not full of sorrows ONLY during the passion of Christ but through out his life and her life as well.

I agree that many times this is the case Fr but, in this Novena, St Alphonsus has focused his reflections on just the Seven Sorrows, though he has mentioned many of her daily sufferings too.
