Mother of Sorrows
As Your Son was raised on the cross,
His Mother Mary stood by Him,
sharing His suffering.
May she, who is also our
spiritual Mother and Patroness in Heaven,
help us to find renewed strength
at the cross of Jesus Christ
and so come to share in His rising to new life,
where He lives and reigns
with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.
Prayer to Saint Padre Pio
Oh Jesus, full of grace and charity, victim for sinners,
so impelled by Your love for us that you willed to die on the cross,
I humbly entreat Thee to glorify in heaven and on earth,
the servant of God, Padre Pio of Pietrelcina,
who generously participated in Your sufferings,
who loved Thee so much and labored so faithfully
for the glory of Your heavenly Father and for the good of souls.
With confidence, I beseech Thee to grant me, through his
intercession, the grace of (mention your request here)
which I ardently desire.
Please recite one Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be.
