Tonight we began the seven commemorations of our Lady of Sorrows, in preparation for her feast day, September 15th.
For it is she, the Stabat Mater,
who stood at the foot of the Cross of
her Son, our Lord Jesus,
pondering in her heart
what God’s plan might hold,
to include such horrendous pain.
Let us walk with our Lady
in these days, and implore her,
to intercede for all
those who are suffering.
For what else shall we pray?
Mater Dolorosa, Ora pro nobis.
Mater Charitatis, Ora pro nobis.
