A Prayer to the Most Holy Virgin Mother of Sorrows

Mary, Virgin, Mother of God,

Martyr of love and sorrow,

because thou didst witness

the pains and torments of Jesus:

truly didst thou concur

in the great work of my redemption,

first, by thine innumerable afflictions,

and then by the offering

thou didst make to the Eternal Father

of His and thine only-begotten,

as a holocaust and victim of propitiation for my sins.

I compassionate thee for the bitter pain

which thou didst suffer.

I thank thee for that love,

well-nigh infinite,

through which thou didst bereave thyself

of the Fruit of the womb,

true God, and true man,

to save me, a sinner;

let thine intercession be ever

interposed with the Father

and the Son for me,

that I may steadily amend my evil ways,

and never, by further faults,

crucify afresh my loving Saviour;

that so, persevering in His grace until death,

I may obtain eternal life:

through the merits of His dolorous Passion

and His death upon the Cross.

Three Hail Mary...

Let Us Pray.

O Lord Jesus Christ,

Who, at the sixth hour of the day, didst,

for the Redemption of the world,

mount the gibbet of the Cross,

and shed Thy precious Blood

for the remission of sins;

we humbly beseech Thee to grant us,

after our death,

a joyful entrance into the gates of paradise.

Grant, we beseech Thee,

O Lord Jesus Christ,

that now, and at the hour of our death,

the Blessed Mary, ever Virgin,

Thy Mother, may intercede for us,

through whose most holy soul

a sword passed in the hour of Thy Passion:

through Thee, Jesus Christ,

Saviour of the world, Who,

with the Father and the Holy Ghost

livest and reignest forever and ever.
