Most holy and afflicted
Virgin of sorrows,
you stood beneath the cross,
witnessing the agony of your dying Son.
Look with a mother’s tenderness
and have pity on me, I place my requests
with filial confidence in the sanctuary
of your wounded heart. Amen.
O Divine Master, grant that
I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning
that we are pardoned. Amen.
Perpetual Mass E
