A beautiful prayerbook....
The Way of the Cross as composed by St. Alphonsus Liguori
The 4th Station
Jesus meets His afflicted Mother
We adore You, O Christ and we praise You.
Because, by Your Holy Cross, You have redeemed the world.
Consider how the Son met His Mother on His way to Calvary. Jesus and Mary gazed at each other and their looks became as so many arrows to wound those hearts which loved each other so tenderly.
My most loving Jesus, by the pain You suffered in this meeting, grant me the grace of being truly devoted to Your most Holy Mother. And you my Queen, who was overwhelmed with sorrow, please obtain for me by your prayers a tender and lasting remembrance of the passion of your divine Son. i love You, Jesus my love, above all things and i repent of ever having offended You., Never allow me to offend You again and grant that i may love You always and then do with me as You will.
Is there one who would not weep,
whelmed in miseries so deep
Christ's dear Mother to behold...
