TODAY IS The Feast of our Lady of Sorrows

O Mother of Sorrows,
with strength from above
you stood by the Cross
sharing in the sufferings of Jesus,
and with tender care you bore him
in your arms mourning and weeping.

We praise you for your faith,
which accepted the life God planned for you.
We praise you for your hope,
which trusted that he would do
great things for you.
We praise you for your love,
in bearing, with Jesus,
the sorrows of his passion.

Holy Mary,
may we follow your example
and stand by all our children
who need comfort and love.

Mother of God,
stand by us in our trials
and care for us in our many needs.
Pray for us now
and at the hour of our death. Amen.
