Sept 15 Lady of Sorrows


A Pilgrim's Daily Prayer

Called through the Word to the everlasting journey in the Spirit

from nothingness to union with the One who is the Beginning and the End

William Blake, The Crucifixion: 'Behold Thy Mother,' Tate Collections, London, c.1805

  

Our Lady of Sorrows:                                                                Sorrow to be Shared; Pain to be Alleviated

 

Readings for Mass
First Reading: Hebrews 5:7-9
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 31:2-3, 3-4, 5-6, 15-16, 20
Gospel: John 19:25-27, or Luke 2:33-35

 

When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing beside her, he said to his mother, ‘Woman, here is your son.’ Then he said to the disciple, ‘Here is your mother.’ And from that hour the disciple took her into his own home (NRSV, John 19:26-27).

 

Let us pray.

 

Father, it is your one divine life that you offer to share with us, calling us all to be one family in you.  Christ is our brother, Mary our mother: we are all sister and brother, mother and father, and child to one another.  The joys of one are the joys of all and the sorrows of one belong equally to all.  As the beloved disciple took the sorrowful mother into his home, may we all go out to everyone in need that we may share in their sufferings and alleviate their pain.

 

Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
