Mother of Sorrows, Pray for her

j - extra-marie-jean.jpg

Stella died last night, surrounded by her friends and family, pray for her.
Pray for her 13 year old son.
Pray for her mother at home in Africa who was unable to get a visa to be with her dying daughter.

Mother of Sorrows who stood by the Cross of your Son, sharing in His suffering and Cross, pray for those who mourn.
Pray for those who face the separation of death. Pray for those whose families and hearts are broken by death.
Pray for children and the young who must grow up without a mothers embrace.

Never was it known that anyone who fled to her protection was left unaided.

We are never alone.

Our Divine Master commanded:

"Mother. There is your son."

"Son, there is your Mother"

Blessed be God, in all His Angels, and all His Saints.
