O Holy Mother of Sorrows, with strength from above you stood by the cross of Jesus, sharing in his sufferings, 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 God would do great things in 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 your children who need comfort and love. O Most Blessed Mother of God, stand by us in our trials and care for us in our many needs.
We ask you to support us with your embrace of motherly love and protection.
Pray for us to you Son, Jesus, now and always.
