Mater Dolorosa (Mother of Sorrows)

Dan Paulos

Artist's Narrative:
O Mother acquainted with sorrow,
O Mother of our consolation,
let me lay my head across your lap
and pour out all my griefs and fears and sorrows,
me, just another poor daughter of Eve
with a cup that seems to big to drink,
like so many women across the world
who know that you,
you listen,
you care,
you are our Mother.
O Mary, conceived without sin,

pray for us who have recourse to thee.

Her feast day is September 15.
