The wife of a man named Blasi, from Frascati, had a child whom she was nursing; having taken him into her bed with her, she fell asleep and suffocated the child. When she woke up, she cried out in despair and pain, but she came to her senses and ran to the shrine of Mary: the dead child was placed on Her altar; the children of the schools were called; the people joined them and the Salve Regina was recited before the image of the Mother of mercies. The good superior of the Pious Schools takes the child in his arms, lifts him up, offers him to Mary, and then places him back on the altar; people pray, hope, and keep a respectful silence; then, the fortunate child begins to move and cry; he not only gives a sign of life, but also seems to give thanks to Mary and to God. Who can describe the emotion, the joy and the tears of gratitude of the whole crowd, and the happiness of the poor mother at the sight of her resurrected child? I leave that to your imagination, children of Mary; always trust in Her without measure and without limits!
Sign of the Cross
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, and of the Mother of God. Amen.
O Jesus! We are going to walk with You on the road to Calvary which was so painful for You. Make us understand the greatness of Your sufferings, touch our hearts with tender compassion at the sight of Your torments, in order to increase in us the regret of our faults and the love we wish to have for You.
Deign to apply to all of us the infinite merits of Your Passion, and in memory of Your sorrows, show mercy to the souls in Purgatory, especially to those who are most abandoned.
O Divine Mary, who first taught us to make the Way of the Cross, obtain for us the grace to follow Jesus with the sentiments Your Heart was filled with as You accompanied Him on the road to Calvary. Grant that we may weep with You, and that we may love Your divine Son as You do. We ask this in the name of His adorable Heart. Amen.
My Jesus, forgiveness and mercy!
By the merits of Thy holy Wounds and the sorrows of Thy Mother.
