Start Novena to Our Lady of Dolours today April 6, 2011

MOST BLESSED and afflicted Virgin, Queen of Martyrs,
who didst stand generously beneath the cross, beholding the agony of thy dying Son;
by the sword of sorrow which then pierced thy soul, by the sufferings of thy sorrowful life,
by the unutterable joy which now more than repays thee for them;
look down with a mother’s pity and tenderness, as I kneel before thee to compassionate thy sorrows,
and to lay my petition with childlike confidence in thy wounded heart.
I beg of thee, O my Mother, to plead continually for me with thy Son, since He can refuse thee nothing,
and through the merits of His most sacred Passion and Death, together with thy own sufferings at the foot of the cross,
so to touch His Sacred Heart, that I may obtain my request,

Here pause and name the favors which you are asking Our Sorrowful Mother to obtain for you through this Novena.

For to whom shall I fly in my wants and miseries, if not to thee, O Mother of mercy,
who, having so deeply drunk the chalice of thy Son, canst most pity us poor exiles, still doomed to sigh in this vale of tears?
Offer to Jesus but one drop of His Precious Blood, but one pang of His adorable Heart;
remind Him that thou art our life, our sweetness, and our hope, and thou wilt obtain what I ask,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Hail Mary, Virgin Most Sorrowful, pray for us.
(Seven times)

The Canticle of Simeon (Lk 2:29-32, 34-35), not part of the Novena:

Now thou dost dismiss thy servant, O Lord, according to thy word in peace:
Because my eyes have seen thy salvation,
Which thou hast prepared before the face of all peoples:
A light to the revelation of the Gentiles and the glory of thy people Israel…….
Behold this child is set for the fall and rise of many in Israel and for a sign which shall be contradicted.
And thy own soul a sword shall pierce, that, out of many hearts thoughts  may be revealed.

I love you my mother.

I was just thinking to myself, ‘Man, I could sure use more of those greenbacks.’ What with gas,clothing and food prices going up and…wha?…oh…you mean DOLOURS…

Ah, well…it’s all worthless FIAT money anyways… (double rim shot) 😉

Seriously, thanks for the reminder. God bless!
