O Blessed Virgin Mary,
Immaculate Mother of God,
who endured a martyrdom of love and grief,
beholding the sufferings and sorrows of Jesus!
You helped me in my redemption by your innumerable afflictions and by offering to the Eternal Father, His only-begotten Son as a holocaust and victim of appeasement for my sins. I thank you for the unspeakable love which led you to deprive yourself of the Fruit of your womb, Jesus, true God and true Man, to save me, a sinner.
Make use of the unfailing intercession of your sorrows with the Father and the Son, that I may steadfastly amend my life and never again crucify my loving Redeemer by new sins; and that, persevering till death in His grace, I may obtain eternal life through the merits of His Cross and Passion. Amen.
Mother of love, of sorrow, and of mercy: Pray for us. (By St Bridget)
