Our Lady of Sorrows

Let us pray for Pope Francis and all leaders of our Church. May they strive to comfort the weary and find hope for the grieving by their ministry and service.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray to live the example of Mary, Our Lady of Sorrows by standing next to those who suffer. May we serve others with compassion, those who live with only broken hearts.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for the Congregation of Holy Cross as they celebrate their Patroness, Mary, Our Lady of Sorrows. May our priests, brothers and novices strive to lift up the poor and carry the burdens of the lost as they stand next to suffering.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray to bring God’s mercy to the unemployed, the ill, the hungry and the prisoner. May Our Lady of Sorrows show us how to live our faith in daily life.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray to stand among people who face uneasy questions of life. May our search for faith bring us new hope for all people on earth. Let us work for clean water, adequate housing and available health care.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for our beloved dead. May we learn from Our Lady of Sorrows who held the wounds and death of her son, Jesus. In this Mass…

We pray to the Lord.
