Our Mother of Sorrows looks across the lawn at her Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ, nailed to a cross in Section eight. Sections seven and eight are married together with an avenue of the Stations of the Cross that traverses between the two sections.
Prayer to Our Mother of Sorrows
Our mother of sorrows, with strength from above you stood by the cross, sharing in the sufferings of Jesus, and with tender care you bore Him in your arms, mourning and weeping.
We praise you for your faith, which accepted the life God planned for you. We praise you for your hope, which trusted that God would do great things in you.
We praise you for your love in bearing with Jesus the sorrows of His passion.
Holy Mary, may we follow your example, and stand by all your children who need comfort and love.
Mother of God, stand by us in our trials and care for us in our many needs. Pray for us now and at the hour of our death.
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”
“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”
“Give all your worries to Him, because He cares for you. “
1 Peter 5:7
“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.”
