Novena Prayer for Our Lady of Sorrows:

(To commence on September 15th)

O BLESSED Virgin Mary, Mother of our Redeemer! remember we are thy children, given to thee by thy Divine Son, when expiring on the cross. Mother of sorrows! by the tears which flowed from thy eyes when Saint John related how the traitor Judas sold thy Divine Son for the vile price of thirty pieces of silver; how, in the Garden of Olives, he was agonized with fear and sorrow, the blood gushing through every pore; by all the anguish that overwhelmed thy heart when thou didst hear that Jesus, the only object of thy love, was condemned to death; by the sorrow that pierced thy maternal bosom, in meeting thy only beloved Son loaded with a heavy cross, spent through loss of blood, fatigue and pain; by that heroic resignation to the divine will, which, triumphing over the sentiments of nature, sustained thee at the foot of the cross; by the excess of grief that would have robbed thee of life, had not God preserved thee for the comfort of his disciples and of his infant church; by the dolors that rent thy desolate heart when beholding thy beloved Jesus, most beautiful in his comeliness above the sons of men, become a prey to death, the ignominious death of the cross; by all the sufferings of thy most afflicted heart, obtain for us, O Mother of Mercy, true contrition for our sins, persevering fervour in the divine service, and the particular favours we solicit in this Novena.

O thou most tender and afflicted Mother, who didst sacrifice thyself on the same altar with thy beloved Son, and whose heart was penetrated by the nails that fastened him to the cross; as it was our sins inflicted those torments on thy Divine Son, we acknowledge that we justly deserve the wrath of divine justice to fall on our devoted heads. But if those very sufferings have proved our defence and protection heretofore, grant that now at least we may participate profoundly in the sorrow of which we have been the unhappy cause; and obtain, that souls hitherto so insensible to the strongest proofs of love, may, by heartfelt contrition, taste one drop of that bitter chalice of which thou didst drink so deeply.

  28. Dearest Mother,
    Please help me to heal my bitterly broken heart. My heart is in pain and I feel so alone. I have had my heart broken three times in the past year and I cannot face the world with an open heart and charitable spirit. I have been abused and neglected, and I have abused and neglected myself as a result.
    Dearest Holy Mother- please help me! I cry every single day now. My latest heartbreak has rendered me bitter to the world outside. I have found myself wishing for death to ease the pain. Please Holy Mother- as you so loved St Joseph and loved and raised our beloved Jesus to be a reflection of Divine Love, please instill this love and strength in me. Please help me to heal what is broken, and to have faith that I will find the loved one I seek, who will love me just as much as I love them, and to have a happy, healthy, loving family with this person. Amen!

    • Dear One,
      We are praying with and for you in your pain. Know that Jesus and Mary join with you and wrap their loving and protective arms around you. The hurt we feel in our human relationships and worldly failings are shared by us all. It is so easy to become embittered.. I have felt this, too, and it can be a hard habit to break. Give that isolating and self-destructive reaction over to Jesus on the Cross.. He will take it from you and heal your heart.
      Entrust your heart and every part of your self and your life to our Beloved Mother, Mary… The first thing Jesus did when coming to bring us Salvation was to entrust Himself entirely to the care of Mary.. and the last thing He did before returning to Heaven was to entrust His Mother to St John, making her the Mother of us all!
      Give yourself time with her in retreat. I highly recommend spending daily reflection time . It has brought me much healing and holy JOY!
      Dear sister LM, I pray that JESUS will become the ONLY “loved ONE you seek”… there is the only place we can find true, unconditional, and transforming LOVE! Peace to you.

  29. Dearest Mother my Mother Mary, Mother of Christ,

Send your Angels to be with me and for me to recognize them. Oh Mother come to my help.

  56. I am the youngest child of an amazing Polish Catholic inner city blue collar family, and have been blessed with abilty and support that allowed me to develop the talents that GOD gave me and was able to rise above an impoverished childhood (only as an adult did I realize we were poor, my parents never made us feel anything but love and instilled in us a deep need to help others, yet nonetheless I was not from a world of educated families with dreams) through hard work and determination and become the first in the family with an advanced degree and wonderful opportunities to grow. Now in midlife, my world suddenly changed with the sudden death of my spouse, moving across the country back home when my mom took ill, and settling her estate when she passed. It was a difficult transition that led to financial issues, and other negative factors stemming from feeling alone in this world. I know many suffer worse, and I don’t deserve special favors; I am lucky to have had my mom as long as I did. But three years have passed and I can’t seem to break out of the negative spiral, and indeed though we are all very close to each other and our Faith, it seems all four of us siblings are facing challenges. I woke up today determined to get my life back together so I can help my siblings, and something made me seek out what Catholic saints day it is to pray to that saint. When I realized that is the Sorrowful Mother, who my mom had great devotion to, I had to begin this novena for me and my siblings. Please pray that this situation brings us closer to each other and to God. Specifically I have to take my drivers license test after having mine suspended. Please pray for us and grant eternal rest to our dear mother who is finally reunited with our Dad. Amen and thank you.

  57. Dear Jesus, I have a special request. I have a son who is struggling with depression and alcoholism. He is only 29. He has been hospitalized twice of serious conditions. He is the youngest of 3. He has a daughter age 8. You know his heart and you know my heart Lord. Please guide me father. Please have mercy on us. I ask for prayers of all reading this right now for his salvation and healing. Thank you Jesus.

  58. I pray and ask Our Lady Mary our Mother to intercede for me asking her son Jesus Christ to please open a door for me even if it is only ajar for a little bit of good luck in my life. I have had so much bad luck in my life it has become so unbearable. I am so grateful to be alive and for the blessing God has bestowed upon me all I ask is for one door to open for me please Lord if you feel Lord I do not deserve the door to be opened then close it and never will I ask for it to be opened it again Lord I pray

    Thank you all God bless

    • Dear Vanessa,
      God will open the door at the time when He knows is right. Do not stop praying and asking God. We must pray without ceasing!
      May the peace of our Lord be with you today and always.

  59. prayes the lord pray for my fainancial needs i was much worried about my debts.please pray for my tentions in my life bless my children .god know my problems .what i need in my life i have very much faith in jesus christ.[Amen]

  60. I pray and I pray and I pray… Who hears me, who feels my prayers and understands the loneliness, the pain, the doubts and confusion? Who sees my tears, who hears my cries and questions? Is this pain and loneliness the path you have for me? If so, Lord, I don’t know how to answer you. Please help me, please guide me and please be with me. I feel like I have no one to talk to and no one who knows the truth. I am tired. I want this to be finished. Nothing is real . I hide behind a fake smile and I hate it. I hate myself for not being stronger or happy but the huge voids in my life are harder and harder to ignore and hide. I have nothing, then I hate myself for not being grateful for your blessings Father, but the reality is it takes all my energy to make it through each day, then bring myself up and shut down everything else to make it through the next day. I’m shamed of what I ask of you Lord.

    • “If you are not afraid and witness courageously, the truth will miraculously win, but remember, strength is in love. ”

      (Our Lady Of Medjugorje 2nd June 2015)

  61. My parish growing up was Our Lady of Sorrrows. My mother, myself, and my oldest daughter attended school there.
    I am very nervous and scared this past week. My youngest daughter Gina who I pray for continuously to remain permanently drug free has had a change in behavior and I am quick to doubt her. Please help me Our Lady of Sorrows. I grew up facing your lovely statue in the garden in our school yard that portrayed you as Our Lady of Fatima. Please watch Gina and guide her in the right direction of her life. Make her strong and hopeful. Instill in Gina faith in our Lord and in you and in our holy spirit. Give Gina peace of mind as her self esteem rises and her confidence to live freely in the world expands.

  62. I need prayers for my marriage of 22 years. My beautiful, loving and caring wife has a stone cold heart towards me for some unknown reason. Its not infidelity which i am sure of. I have showed her how much i love her in the past 4-6 months but she still wants a divorce from me. I would never do this to her. I hold true to my catholic vows of “for better or for worse” but she didnt. I want to work any and all issues out with her but she does not care. I have prayed the 54 day novena but there is no change in her heart. I will continue to pray for her and my marriage till the final signing in a couple months, if it should come to that. I pray not. I love my wife with all my being. I want her in my life. I need her in my life. Our Lady of Sorrows, please forgive my wife for what she is doing to our marriage and soften her heart so that she can see just how much i love her and want her in my life forever, like we said to each other on our wedding day. I want nothing more than to hug and kiss my wife again. She treats me like i have the plaque and my heart is in pieces, probably never to recover unless my wife forgives me for whatever she is holding in her heart. Please intervene before it is to late to stop the divorce.

  63. During the St. Anne Novena, I prayed for peace in my family. My husband is a good man, but doesn’t control his emotions well. He is often angry due to frustration and stress. He is insulting and verbally abusive to the kids and me. Beginning on the last day of the novena, he stopped becoming angry with every little thing, and started spending more time with our kids. Amazing!!

  64. Our Lady of Sorrows, My Mother Mary, please continue to pray for me for all of my intentions for healing myself and my children of their disabilities. For the healing of my special friendship with DS, for him to be free of all insecurities, unworthiness, fear & guilt. That the Lord guide him to remove the wall between us so that we can continue our friendship. This separation is causing us both heartache and anxiety. Free him from his financial strain, his bitterness and negativity. Let him be filled with the grace of the Holy Spirit and allow himself to love and be loved again. In the name of the Father & of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…Amen

  80. Heavenly Father,
    I pray for all the sick both lying at the hospitals and at home. I pray in a special way for the quickest recovery of who has been in deep pains for 3 months now as a result of ill-health.
    Merciful Lord, give her the courage and strength to share her pains with Jesus Forsaken and may you send your healing spirits upon her and restore her health. I know and I am confident that you will make it a way when there seem to be none.
    I ask this petition through the intercession of Our Lady of Sorrows in Jesus’ name. Amen!

  81. Thank you Lord for rejoining me with my husband. Please let all the people in my life, especially my mother realize that staying married is for my highest good and that divorce would be ruin for me and the children. Please help her out of her depression, negative thinking, and constant verbal attacks on me. Please help her as she has slowly cut out all the people in her life and is trying to control me into taking care of her for the rest of her life- realize her of her manipulations. I want to take care of my life and my family now. Please let my father, who has passed away, speak to her heart and tell her what she is doing is wrong. Please remove me from her house as soon as possible. Please let our other house sell and that my husband and I can buy the house we are currently looking at quickly and move in together as soon as possible. Remove all of our financial difficulties and current burdens. Amen.

  82. Please pray for the heart of my prodigal husband to change, as Our Sorrowful Mother promised, to those who devoutly (and regularly) pray the Rosary to the Seven Sorrows of Mary. I have lost Tim after 22 years of Catholic marriage–to his willful departure, divorce, and having entered into a civil marriage of permanent adultery! He has left our children and me homeless, jobless, and spiritually destitute of his God-given headship of our family. He is in imminent danger of losing his eternal soul! We pray for his change of heart and his repentant conversion to re-join the marriage and family that God has made!
    We ask this of our Eternal Father, through our Sorrowful Mother’s intercession, and in Jesus’ name. Amen
