Traditional Lenten Prayer to Our Lady of Sorrows

O most holy Virgin,
Mother of our Lord Jesus Christ
by the overwhelming grief you experienced
when you witnessed the martyrdom,
the crucifixion
and death of your divine Son,
look upon me with eyes of compassion
and awaken in my heart,
a tender commiseration for those sufferings,
as well as a sincere detestation of my sins,
in order that being disengaged from all
undue affection for the passing joys of this earth,
I may sigh after the eternal Jerusalem
and that henceforward,
all my thoughts and all my actions,
may be directed towards
this one most desirable goal –
the honour, glory and love
of our divine Lord Jesus
and to you, the holy
and immaculate Mother of God.

In this prayer to Our Lady of Sorrows, we call to mind the pain endured both by Christ on the Cross and by Mary as she watched her Son being crucified.   In reciting the prayer, we ask for the grace to join in that sorrow, so that we may awaken to what is truly important—not the passing joys of this life but the lasting joy of eternal life in Heaven.traditional lenten prayer to our lady of sorrows - 9 march 2019.jpg



Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul. "For the Saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! 🙏
