Prayer to the Sorrowful Mother
By St Alphonsus Liguori (1696-1787)
Doctor of the Church
My sorrowful Mother,
by the merit of that grief
which you felt at seeing your beloved Jesus
led to death,
obtain for me the grace to bear with patience,
those crosses which God sends me.
I will be fortunate if I also shall know
hot to accompany you with my cross until death.
You and Jesus,
have borne a heavy cross
and shall I,
a sinner who has merited hell,
I hope you will help me
to bear my crosses with patience.
