Jesus Meets His Afflicted Mother
V. We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise
R. Because by Thy holy cross Thou hast redeemed the world.
Consider, the meeting of the Son and the
Mother, which took place on this journey. Jesus and Mary looked at each
other, and their looks became as so many arrows to wound those hearts
which loved each other so tenderly.
My most loving Jesus, by the sorrow Thou
didst experience in this meeting, grant me the grace of a truly devoted
love for Thy most holy Mother. And thou, my Queen, who was overwhelmed
with sorrow, obtain for me by thy intercession a continual and tender
remembrance of the Passion of thy Son. I love Thee, Jesus, my love; I
repent of ever having offended Thee. Never permit me to offend Thee again.
Grant that I may love Thee always; and then do with me what Thou wilt.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to
|Quis est homo qui non flerent,
Matrem Christi si videret
In tanto supplicio?
|Is there one who would not weep
Whelmed in miseries so deep
Christ's dear Mother to behold?
