Prayer to Our Sorrowful Mother
by St. Alphonsus Maria Liguori
O my afflicted Mother! Queen of Martyrs and of Sorrows, thou didst so bitterly weep over thy Son, Who died for my salvation; but what will thy tears avail me if I am lost? By the merits, then, of thy Sorrows, obtain for me deep contrition for my sins, and a true amendment of life, together with constant and tender compassion for the sufferings of Jesus and thy Dolors.
An excerpt from Pope Pius XII's "Mediator Dei"
in which he explains how we of the royal priesthood should approach the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass:
91. But there is also a more profound reason why all Christians, especially those who are present at Mass, are said to offer the sacrifice.
