  1. Yes, all sorrows are not the same. This is a beautiful post, and it give food for thought. What a lovely piece to have on your gravesite.

  2. Indeed – so many sorrows inflicted on the innocent.

  3. So many and, sadly, so much sorrow in the world…

  4. A slanting sun upon that face a sacred reminder.

  8. Some of the most beautiful and comforting of Marys are found in her sorrowful guise.

  9. Beautiful, and you are right; not all sorrows are the same. The grave of the person you photographed is being beautifully watched over by family and friends.

  10. What a beautiful photo! And flawlessly expressed. 🙂 I didn’t realise it was part of a ‘Mary’ challenge till I glanced at the comments on the way down.

  11. I’ve always found graveyards interesting places to explore, because of the headstones. They’re so much history in them!
