Opening Meditation

In the Sorrows of the Virgin Mary we see a reflection of the suffering and bitter anguish of the human Christ.  Just as Mary accepted the total mystery of Christ into her life, so may we see in our sorrow, our fear, and humiliation, a dim but real participation in His passion and death, recalling that if we wish to follow Him, we must “take up our Cross” each day.  Let us pray that we accept Christ’s call, and become co-suffers of His passion.

Closing Prayer

Lord God, our Father, from the passion and death of Jesus, shared by the compassion of his Mother, you brought healing to fallen man.  Grant that we, your people may experience this healing and rise from the power of sin to a wholeness of life promised by Jesus, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, now and forever, AMEN.  (3 Hail Marys)
