NOVENA TO OUR LADY OF SORROWS DAY1
Our Lady of Sorrows, Holy Mother of God,
hear the prayers of the Church for all mothers,
especially those wearied by life
and overcome by the suffering they bear for their children.
Recite the following prayer...
O Mother of the Word Incarnate, Our Lady of Sorrows,
intercede for them from your place in heaven,
that the mercy of your divine Son
might lighten their burden and give them strength.
Recite the following prayers...
Glory to the Father...
Our Lady of Sorrows,
Labor day usually brings to mind images of factory workers,
farmers or heavy equipment operators.
Yet we also use labor to describe the first work
which brought each one of us to birth:
those first hours of maternal sacrifice
which brought us into the world.
It's too easy to forget that
and all the other sacrifices
which the vocation of motherhood entails.
Pray for the mothers in labor today,
those who give birth,
those who work two jobs to support a child,
those who go without so their child's needs are met,
those whose patient endurance is a sign of God's love upon the cross.
Our Lady of Sorrows pray for us
