Blessed Virgin Mary: first Saturday of the month and devout affections, fifth prayer

 

 

O Jesus, King most beloved,

remember now the mournful desolation of Thy Heart,

when Thou forsaken by all,

wert mocked as Thou didst hang on the Cross;

 

when Thou didst find none to comfort Thee but Thy beloved Mother,

who stood by Thy Cross to the last,

and whom Thou didst commend to the disciple:

 

Woman, behold thy son

 

and to the disciple:

 

Behold thy Mother

 

I beseech Thee, O compassionate  Jesus,

by that sword of anguish which then pierced her Heart,

do Thou condole with me and console me

in all my tribulations.

Amen

+PAX
