Father Roviglione, of the Society of Jesus, reports that a young man had the devotion of visiting every day an image of Mary, Mother of Sorrows, whose Heart was pierced with seven swords. One night, he had the misfortune to fall into mortal sin, and when he went to visit the holy image in the morning, he noticed that there were eight swords instead of seven. While he was busy looking at this wonder, he heard a voice telling him that it was his sin that had added this eighth sword to the Heart of Mary. At the same moment, moved and filled with repentance, he went to confession and recovered the grace of God through the intercession of his powerful Advocate.
(Saint Alphonsus Liguori)
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.
