Thank you for joining us in prayer for justice and healing in our Church.
Together, we pray this novena to Our Lady of Sorrows, for the following intentions:
- Healing for all victims of clergy sexual abuse, and for victims’ families from pain caused by clergy, consecrated religious and lay leaders in the Church
- Justice for perpetrators of evil in the Church
- Renewal at all levels in the Catholic Church
- Mary’s intercession on behalf of all who are suffering
Prayer in honor of the Fourth Sorrow of Mary:
The Meeting of Mary and Jesus on the Way to Calvary
Most sorrowful Mother, who can fathom the grief of your heart when you saw your Son fall, wounded and bleeding under the crushing weight of the cross, on the way to Calvary?
Queen of Martyrs, let me unite my heart to yours in this sorrow, and obtain for me the grace to bear patiently whatever cross God may see fit to send me.
Hail Mary, full of grace the Lord is with Thee, blessed art Thou among women and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
