JESUS MEETS HIS AFFLICTED MOTHER
V: We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You. (Genuflect)
R: Because, by Your holy cross, You have redeemed the world. (Rise)
V: Consider how the Son met His Mother on His way to Calvary. Jesus and Mary gazed at each other and their looks became as so many arrows to wound those hearts which loved each other so tenderly. (Kneel)
R: Jesus, instill in young men and women the desire to come to know Your Mother and find in their prayerful reflection of the Scriptures, a woman of faith, hope and love whose vocation is an example for all. Help parents to promote and support vocations among their children, families and church communities.
(Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be...)
Is there one who would not weep / 'whelmed in miseries so deep / Christ's dear Mother to behold.
