To the Mother of Sorrows
Most holy Virgin and Mother,
whose soul was pierced by a sword of sorrow in the Passion of thy divine Son,
and who in His glorious Resurrection wast filled with never-ending joy at His triumph;
obtain for us who call upon thee,
so to be partakers in the adversities of Holy Church and the sorrows of the Sovereign Pontiff,
as to be found worthy to rejoice with them in the consolation for which we pray,
in the charity and peace of the same Christ our Lord.
