PRAYER AND LITANY OF OUR LADY OF SORROWS


Jacob of Serugh (451-521), a Syrian poet and theologian, prayed to Christ:

“Your Mother endured great suffering for you and was beset by every kind of distress because of your Crucifixion. So much grief, so many tears shed by those eyes when they buried you, placing you in the tomb. So much horror endured by the Mother of Mercy at your burial, when the guardians of the tomb took hold of you. What suffering she endured when she saw you hanging from the cross, and they pierced your side with the lance of Golgotha.”

At the end of the first millennium, the Greek writer Symeon the Metaphrast expressed Mary’s sorrow as she held her son’s body:

“Your hands and your feet are pierced, but I feel the nails bringing torture to my innermost soul. Your side has been pierced, but my heart too has been pierced at the same time. I too am crucified by your sufferings, have died in your Passion, and am buried with you.”
