Prayer to Our Lady of Sorrows

Our Lady of Sorrows. This version of the Blessed Virgin has been worshiped by the Catholic Church since the 13th century.

The first records come from Germany, around 1221. In 1239, the veneration of the saint reached Italy. In the following centuries, the devotion spread to several countries around the world.

O Most Holy Virgin, Mother of our Lord Jesus Christ: by the overwhelming grief you experienced when you witnessed the martyrdom, the crucifixion, and the death of your divine Son.
Look upon me with eyes of compassion and awaken in my heart tender compassion for those suffering, as well as a sincere detestation of my sins, in order that, being disengaged from all undue affections for the passing joys of this earth.
I may long for the eternal Jerusalem, and that henceforth all my thoughts and all my actions may be directed toward this one most desirable object.

Honor, glory, and love to our divine Lord Jesus, and to the holy and immaculate Mother of God.


Our Lady of Sorrows- Stabat Mater Dolorósa (Latin)

Stabat mater dolorósa juxta Crucem lacrimósa, dum pendébat Fílius.
Cuius ánimam geméntem, contristátam et doléntem pertransívit gládius.
O quam tristis et afflícta fuit illa benedícta, mater Unigéniti!
Quae mœrébat et dolébat, pia Mater, dum vidébat nati pœnas ínclyti.
Quis est homo qui non fleret, matrem Christi si vidéret in tanto supplício?
Quis non posset contristári Christi Matrem contemplári doléntem cum Fílio?
Pro peccátis suæ gentis vidit Jésum in torméntis, et flagéllis súbditum.
Vidit suum dulcem Natum moriéndo desolátum, dum emísit spíritum.
Eja, Mater, fons amóris me sentíre vim dolóris fac, ut tecum lúgeam.
Fac, ut árdeat cor meum in amándo Christum Deum ut sibi compláceam.
Sancta Mater, istud agas, crucifíxi fige plagas cordi meo válide.
Tui Nati vulneráti, tam dignáti pro me pati, pœnas mecum dívide.
Fac me tecum pie flere, crucifíxo condolére, donec ego víxero.
Juxta Crucem tecum stare, et me tibi sociáre in planctu desídero.
Virgo vírginum præclára, mihi iam non sis amára, fac me tecum plángere.
Fac ut portem Christi mortem, passiónis fac consórtem, et plagas recólere.
Fac me plagis vulnerári, fac me Cruce inebriári, et cruóre Fílii.
Flammis ne urar succénsus, per te, Virgo, sim defénsus in die iudícii.
Christe, cum sit hinc exire, da per Matrem me veníre ad palmam victóriæ.
Quando corpus moriétur, fac, ut ánimæ donétur paradísi glória.


The Mother of Sorrows is my confidante, my teacher, my counselor, and my powerful advocate.
