The Chaplet of the Seven Sorrows is to meditate on Mary, "the woman of sorrows" whom God created as the mother of Jesus, and who as such, participates in his Passion. The chaplet is prayed using a special rosary comprised of seven groups of seven beads. Each section is dedicated to one of the great seven sorrows the Blessed Mother experienced during her life. Each group of seven is dedicated to one of the sorrows.

The Seven Sorrows or “Servite Rosary,” came to fruition during the Middle Ages but regained popularity following the Church-approved Marian apparitions in Kibeho, Rwanda in the 1980s. In her apparitions, Our Lady of Kibeho recommended that people pray the Chaplet of the Seven Sorrows every Tuesday and Friday.
