Honour thy Mother all the days of thy life and be mindful of how much she suffered for thee.

- A traditional Catholic instruction for devotion of Mary’s sorrows 

GRIEVE 

I grieve for Thee, O Mary most sorrowful, in the affliction of Thy tender heart at the prophecy of the holy and aged Simeon. Dear Mother, by Thy heart so afflicted, obtain for me the virtue of humility and the Gift of the holy Fear of God.

- Traditional prayer to Our Lady of Sorrows

SORROW 

Great as the sea is thy sorrow
O wide expanse of lonely gray,
endless to sight
and deep beyond the sounding
of our shallow hearts,
how can we comfort thee?

Great as the sea, and silent
as a morning after storm.
O quietness
beside the shore’s wild wreckage,
O grief-worn waters,
what comfort can we bring?

O great like the sea, and profound!
O great, and as the sea, so stilled!
O Sorrow of Mary,
the infinite Heart of God alone
can comfort thee.

- Communion of Reparation (for Our Lady of Sorrows) by Sr. Mary Julian Baird, R.S.M.
