Prayer to Our Mother of Sorrows

O Sorrowful Mother, through Divine Grace you always had the courage to do God's holy will, especially in moments of trial.

At the foot of the Cross, you accepted your personal agony as you watched your Son sacrifice His life for our salvation. You gave us an example to emulate whenever we are called upon to endure suffering.

You are the New Eve, the Woman who shared in restoring the life of Grace that was lost through original sin. You always lead us back to Jesus whenever we stray.

As the faithful handmaid of the Lord, we ask you to intercede for us before the throne of God, so that in our sorrows and distress, we may know His peace and love. As our loving Mother, let your maternal arms embrace us and keep us safe from all harm.

At the end of our earthly life, pray for us so that Jesus your Son will take us home to the Father. Shelter us under your mantle so that we may receive mercy and forgiveness for our sins and be numbered among the blessed.
