Our Lady of Sorrows (Latin: Beata Maria Virgo Perdolens), Our Lady of Dolours, the Sorrowful Mother or Mother of Sorrows (Latin: Mater Dolorosa), and Our Lady of Piety, Our Lady of the Seven Sorrows or Our Lady of the Seven Dolours are names by which the Virgin Mary is referred to in relation to sorrows in her life.

These Humeral Veil are made in Silver - Blue fabric with cross designs and black orphreys. The Silver-Blue combination represents the Greatness of Our Lady and the black banding is for the pain she had to go through. The Vesica / Motiff on the vestments (done by fabric printing), is of the Immaculate Heart of Mary pierced with the seven swords representing the seven sorrows.

Measurement: 8 ft (96 inches) long (from end to end) and 22 inches wide.

Humeral Veil is a liturgical garment used in the Roman Rite, some Anglican and Lutheran churches. It consists of a piece of cloth about 100 inches long and 25 inches wide draped over the shoulders and down the front, normally of silk or cloth of gold. At the ends there are sometimes pockets in the back for hands to go into so that the wearer can hold items without touching them with the hands. The humeral veil is of the liturgical colour of the day on which it is used, or else is white or cloth of gold. The humeral veil is most often used during the liturgy of Exposition and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. When priests or deacons bless the people with the monstrance, they cover their hands with the ends of the veil so that their hands do not touch the monstrance as a mark of respect for the sacred vessel and as an indication that it is Jesus present in the Eucharistic species who blesses the people and not the minister.
