Jesus, my Lord,
let me go to Mary
when suffering threatens to overwhelm me.
Ask your mother to stay with me
when I am afraid and tempted to surrender.
Let me look to Mary
as my model for love,
as well as my haven of healing.
Make sure I am considerate of other people
and notice how they are affected by their suffering.
I'm not the only one.
I beg you, Lord,
to help me grow in compassion.
If I am faithful to You
and close to Your blessed mother,
those who suffer will
be comforted by my presence...
and they will
as I stand beside them,
by their cross.

Her livid flesh the scourges streak.
In pity for her Savior's woes,
Her days and even nights are closed. ... continue reading
