Catholic Prayer: Prayer for the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord (Candlemas)
This prayer by Abbot Gueranger is appropriate for the feast of the Presentation, or Candlemas Day.
O Blessed Mother, the sword is already in your heart.
You foreknow the future of the Fruit of your womb.
May our fidelity in following Him through the coming mysteries
of His public life bring some alleviations
to the sorrows of your maternal heart.
