“Make sacrifices for sinners, and say often, especially while making a sacrifice: O Jesus, this is for love of Thee, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for offenses committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.” With these words, Our Lady of Fatima reveals her desire to also be remembered as Our Lady of Sorrows. Mary stood with her Son during His agony until the very end. Her soul was pierced along with Jesus - just as Simeon had prophesied so many years before. The striped stone beads and hematite spacer beads on this special chaplet will help you unite your sufferings to those of Christ and His mother. As you meditate on each of Our Lady’s sorrows, your fingers move smoothly around beads. The Italian centerpiece features a beautiful image of the face of Jesus (Ecce Homo) on one side and Our Lady of Sorrows (Mater Dolorosa) on the other. A special Our Lady of Sorrows prayer card is included with how to pray the chaplet. A wonderful gift for anyone with a special devotion to Our Lady of Sorrows, Our Lady of Kibeho, or an affiliation with Miles Christi.
Prayer Card Text -
Front: Sorrowful Mother, intercede for the brokenhearted, and all who have experienced painful loss in life.
Back: "O sweet mother Mary, who knew the sadness of mourning those your heart loved most, pray for us in our time of loss. With strength from above you stood by the cross, sharing in the sufferings of Jesus, and with tender care you bore Him in your arms, mourning and weeping. Even as swords of sorrow pierced your heart, you accepted and embraced all things as coming from the wise and loving hand of God. May we imitate your enduring faith, steadfast hope, and unbounded love. Stand by us in our trials and care for us in our many needs. Pray for us now and at the hour of our death. Amen."
