Prayer to Our Lady of Sorrows by St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori

Prayer to Our Lady of Sorrows 
by St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori

I compassionate thee, O most sorrowful Mother! 
Thy heart was pierced with a sword of grief 
when Simeon foretold to thee in the Temple 
the ignominious death and the desolation of thy Divine and most dear Son, 
which thou wert destined one day to witness. 
By the great anguish of thy suffering heart, 
O gracious Queen of the universe, 
impress upon my mind, 
in life and in death, 
the sacred Passion of Jesus and thine own sorrows.
