Stabat Mater Dolorosa II

Virgo virginum praeclara,

(Virgin of all virgins blest,)

mihi iam non sis amara,

(listen to my fond request,)

fac me tecum plangere.

(let me share thy grief divine.)

 

Fac, ut portem Christi mortem,

(Let me, to my latest breath,)

passionis fac consortem,

(in my body bear the death,)

et plagas recolere.

(of that dying Son of thine.)

 

My first Good Friday vigil with Mater Dolorosa (Mother of Sorrows).

 

Pictured: candles to illuminate Her suffering, a garland of roses to venerate Her sacrifice and an empty holy oil anointing vessel to catch Her sorrowful tears.
