Our Lady of Sorrows
Mary was a martyr,
her heart and soul pierced with a sword.
We call her: Mother of Sorrows.
Mary was a saint,
her heart and soul overflowing with love.
We call her: Mother of Joy.
Sorrow and Joy filled her life,
desolation and consolation,
suffering and rejoicing.
Mary remains our mother and model,
guiding us through the cross into God’s glory.
