The Blessed Virgin Mary is honored with many titles, including Our Lady of Sorrows because of what she suffered as the Mother of the Redeemer.Exorcist Father Chad Ripperger: Our Lady of Sorrows will reveal secrets and convert hardened hearts if you ask her. Our Lady is so powerful! In an extensive video talk about Our Lady of Sorrows, exorcist Father Chad Ripperger explains the incredible power of the Seven Sorrows Devotion.

Revealing Secrets 

He explains how the Seven Sorrows devotion is powerful in revealing secrets and converting the hearts of sinners. Regarding Our Lady's power in revealing secrets:

The first sorrow is the prophecy of Simeon. We read this in Scripture (Luke 2:34). When Simeon blessed them and said to Mary His Mother, "Behold this child is set for the fall and resurrection of many in Israel and for a sign which shall be contradicted. And thy own soul a sword shall pierce, that out of many hearts, thoughts may be revealed."

Our Lord is revealing that Our Lady (the Blessed Virgin Mary) is the one to go to for secret knowledge: "Your soul shall be pierced so that the thoughts of many shall be laid bare."

What Our Lord is revealing to Simeon is that if there is something you need to know that is hidden, you go to her specifically under the title of Our Lady of Sorrows, and she will reveal it to you. It is like clockwork. I do it all the time. You don't do it to find out what our neighbor is doing. But if you have a son or a daughter and you’re concerned about them and you think that there is something wrong, you can ask, "What are we dealing with here?"

Or, even in your own life. It’s very helpful to invoke Our Lady of Sorrows to reveal your own defects, because a lot of times the predominant defect is not the one that is the most seen.

Converting Hearts 

"The rise of many." Our Lady is the one to go to for the conversion of family members by blocking demons. When you’re trying to get someone to convert, or you’re trying to begin leading a better life, there’s two sides. There’s a positive and a negative.

The negative side is that you’ve got to get the demons out of their lives so that they don’t block the operations of grace and influence on the individual. You also have to pray for the grace for them to start leading a moral life. But Our Lady, under the title of Our Lady of Sorrows, is the one to go to for these kind of graces.
