HONOUR THY MOTHER


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

O QUEEN OF MERCY 

O Queen of Mercy, how can we do otherwise than sigh to thee, O solace of the miserable, refuge of outcasts, ransom of captives! We are certain that when thou seest our miseries, thy compassion will hasten to relieve us.

- St John Damascene 

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.
