Seven Sorrows and Seven Joys

1. The Doubt of St. Joseph and the Message of the Angel (Matthew 1:19-20)
2. The Poverty of Jesus' Birth and the Birth itself (Luke 2:7)
3. The Circumcision (Luke 2:21) and the Holy Name of Jesus (Matthew 1:25)
4. The Prophecy of Simeon that many would be lost (Luke 2:34) and his prophecy that many would rise (Luke 2:34)
5. The flight into Egypt (Matthew 2:14) and the Overthrow of idols (Isaias 19:1
6. The return from Egypt (Matthew 2:22) and Life with Mary and Jesus (Luke 2:39)
7. The loss of the Child Jesus (Luke 2:45) and Finding Jesus in the Temple (Luke 2:46)

Thanks to Fish Eaters for this.
