Philip Kosloski - published on 04/08/22

Pray to the Virgin of Sorrows that she will accompany you during Holy Week.

Holy Week is a beautiful time of the year. It is a time when we can spend extra time with our Heavenly Mother, envisioning ourselves back in Jerusalem, walking with her during this painful time in her life.

Here is a prayer by Dom Prosper Gueranger in his Liturgical Year, praying that Mary would be with us as we watch her Son suffer and die.

O Queen of Mercy, O Refuge of Sinners, O untiring Advocate for us in all our miseries,
Deign, sweet Mother, to watch over us during these days of grace.
Give us to feel and relish the Passion of thy Son.
It was consummated in thy presence,
thine own share in it was magnificent.
Oh make us enter into all its mysteries,
that so our souls, redeemed by the Blood of thy Son and helped by thy Tears,
may be thoroughly converted to the Lord
and persevere henceforward faithful in his service.
