Our Lady of Sorrows

Dear Family of Mary!

On this beautiful Memorial of Our Lady of Sorrows, we are given a great gift.  We can compassionate with Our Lady.  We can think about her life, and all that she sacrificed and suffered for our sake, and we can thank her.  On this day we can stop thinking about ourselves for a moment and think about Our Lady.  We can wonder at her patience and humility, her constant selfless service to Jesus, Joseph, and all those who entered their lives.  We can ache with her as Jesus was rejected and misunderstood.  We can cry with her when Jesus was condemned by the leaders of the Jews, mistreated and reviled, scourged, crowned with thorns, and forced to carry the Cross.  We can remain silent with her underneath the Cross as Jesus died for our sins.  And we can weep with her  at His tomb.

We may wonder how we could ever be like Mary, so able to suffer with love.  In this message she gave us some advice that will help us:

February 2, 2016 

“Dear children,
I have called you and am calling you anew
to come to know my Son,
to come to know the truth.
I am with you and am praying for you to succeed.

My children,
you must pray much
in order to have all the more love and patience;
to know how to endure sacrifice
and to be poor in spirit.

Through the Holy Spirit,
my Son is always with you…
His Church is born in every heart
that comes to know Him.

Pray that you can come to know my Son;
pray that your soul may be one with Him.
That is the prayer and the love
which draws others and makes you my apostles.

I am looking at you with love,
with a motherly love.
I know you;
I know your pain and sorrows,
because I also suffered in silence.
My faith gave me love and hope.

I repeat,
the Resurrection of my Son
and my Assumption into Heaven 
are hope and love for you.

Therefore, my children,
pray to come to know the truth;
to have firm faith which will lead your heart
and which will transform your pain and sufferings
into love and hope.

Thank you.”

If you have time today, pray this litany.  May Our Lady’s Sorrows teach us how to love.

Litany of Our Lady of Sorrows

V. Lord, have mercy on us.
R. Christ, have mercy on us.
V. Lord, have mercy on us.
V. Christ, hear us.
R. Christ, graciously hear us.

God, the Father of heaven, have mercy on us.
God the Son, Redeemer of the world, have mercy on us.
God the Holy Spirit, have mercy on us.
Holy Trinity, One God, have mercy on us.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us.
Holy Virgin of virgins,
Mother of the Crucified,
Mother most sorrowful,
Mother most tearful,
Mother afflicted,
Mother forsaken,
Mother bereft of thy Son,
Mother pierced with the sword,
Mother consumed with grief,
Mother filled with anguish,

Mirror of patience,
Rock of constancy,
Joy of the afflicted,
Ark of the desolate,
Refuge of the abandoned,
Shield of the oppressed,
Conqueror of the incredulous,
Solace of the wretched,
Medicine of the sick,
Help of the faint,
Strength of the weak,
Haven of the shipwrecked,
Calmer of tempests,
Companion of the sorrowful,
Treasure of the Faithful,
Theme of Prophets,
Staff of the Apostles,
Queen of Martyrs,
Light of Confessors,
Pearl of Virgins,
Comfort of Widows,
Joy of all Saints,
Pray for us, most Sorrowful Virgin,
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Lamb of God, that takest away the sins of the world.
Spare us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, that takest away the sins of the world.
Hear us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, that takest away the sins of the world.
Have mercy upon us.

Let us pray.

Imprint, O Lord, thy wounds upon our hearts, that we may read therein sorrow and love; sorrow to endure all suffering for thee; love to despise all love but thine; who lives and reigns, world without end, Amen.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
