Pray for us, O Most Sorrowful Virgin, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Lord Jesus, we now implore, both for the present and for the hour of our death, the intercession of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary, Your Mother, whose Holy Soul was pierced during Your Passion by a sword of grief. Grant us this favor, O Savior of the world, Who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit forever and ever. Amen.
Our Mother grants seven graces to the souls who honor her daily by saying seven Hail Mary's and meditating on her tears.1. I will grant peace to their families.
