[About Us]

The Maria SS Addolorata Society is an organization based at Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church in San Diego, Calif. We are Roman Catholics that believe Mary is the Mother of God. Moreover, because she is our Mother we turn to Her and pray with Her by celebrating and honoring Her. We continue our century old traditions by reflecting on the sorrowful phases of Her earthly life.

Since 1941, the Lady of Sorrows statue has had Her place on the left side of the altar of Our Lady of Rosary. The statue presents the sadness in Her face with tears and draping black cape indicating sorrow. On special dates, the statue is adorned with a decorated black cape and seven silver swords wedged into Her heart.

"Behold, this child is destined for the fall and rise of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be contradicted (and you yourself a sword will pierce) so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed." - (Luke 2:34-35)
