As we dedicate the month of September to our Lady of Sorrows, say this prayer to Our Lady. Ask for her guidance, support and love.
“Our mother of sorrows, with strength from above you stood by the cross, sharing in the sufferings of Jesus, 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.
Mother of God, stand by us in our trials and care for us in our many needs. Pray for us now and at the hour of our death.
During the month of September we celebrated the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary on September 8 and on September 15 we will celebrate the Memorial of Our Lady of Sorrows. Through her loss and own grief, our Blessed Mother shares in our grief. She consoles all those afflicted by the many physical and moral heartaches. She is our faithful companion who is always there to help and guide all.
