Devotions to Our Lady of Sorrows


Prayer to Our Lady of Sorrows

O most holy Mother, Queen of sorrows, who did follow your beloved Son through all the way to the cross, and whose heart was pierced with a fresh sword of grief at all the stations of the most sorrowful journey, obtain for us we beseech you, O most loving Mother, a perpetual remembrance of our blessed Savior‘s cross and death, a true and tender devotion to all the mysteries of his most holy Passion, obtain for us the grace to hate sin even as he hated it in the agony in the garden; to endure wrong and insult with all patience, as he endured them in the judgment hall; to love our enemies even as he loved his murderers and prayed for them upon the cross; and to glorify God and do good to our neighbors even as he did in every mystery of his sufferings. O Queen of martyrs who, by the dolor of your immaculate heart on Calvary, did merit to share in the passion of our blessed Redeemer, obtain for us some portion of your compassion that, for the love of Jesus crucified, we may be crucified to the world in this life; and in the life; and in the life to come, may , by his infinite merits and your powerful intercession, reign with him in the glory everlasting. Amen.

Memorare to the Blessed Virgin Mary

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help or sought your intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence I fly unto you, O virgin of virgins, my Mother to you do I come before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the world incarnate, despise not my petitions but in your mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
