    Hail Mary, Full of Sorrows
    favored by Bl. Pope Pius IX

    Hail Mary, full of sorrows, the Crucified is with thee: tearful art thou amongst women, and tearful is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of the Crucified, grant tears to us crucifiers of thy Son, now and at the hour of our death.

    Ave Maria doloribus plena, Crucifixus tecum: lacrymabilis te in mulieribus, et lacrymabilis fructus ventris tui, Jesus. Sancta Maria, Mater Crucifixi: lacrymas impertire nobis crucifixoribus Filii tui, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae.

    Bl. Pope Pius IX desired this prayer to be said with contrite heart in honour of the most holy Virgin in her desolation.

    Aspirations to Mary
    by St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori

    Knowest thou, sweet Mary,
    Whereto I aspire?
    Tis my hope to love thee
    This is my desire.
    I would e'er be near thee,
    Queen most fair and sweet;
    Do not, do not drive me
    From my Mother's feet.
    Then, O Rose most lovely,
    Let me hear from thee;
    Loving Mother, tell me,
    What thou wilt of me.
    More I cannot offer
    Lo, I bring my heart;
    Lovingly I give it,
    Ne'er from thee to part.
    Lady, thou didst take it
    Tis no longer mine;
    Long since thou didst love it
    And its love was thine.
    Do not then forsake me,
    Mother of sweet Love,

    Till one day thou greet me
    Safe in heaven above.

    Christ's blessings on you 7 Sorrows. I think about you, just so much going on. I just became aware of these messages. I guess some of my former PM's are on here, don't know why.

    "Woman, behold your Son!" (Jn 19:26).
    As we near the end of this Jubilee Year,
    when you, O Mother, have offered us Jesus anew,
    the blessed fruit of your womb most pure,
    the Word made flesh, the world's Redeemer,
    we hear more clearly the sweet echo of his words
    entrusting us to you, making you our Mother:
    "Woman, behold your Son!"
    When he entrusted to you the Apostle John,
    and with him the children of the Church and all people,
    Christ did not diminish but affirmed anew
    the role which is his alone as the Saviour of the world.
    You are the splendour which in no way dims the light of Christ,
    for you exist in him and through him.
    Everything in you is fiat: you are the Immaculate One,
    through you there shines the fullness of grace.
    Here, then, are your children, gathered before you
    at the dawn of the new millennium.
    The Church today, through the voice of the Successor of Peter,
    in union with so many Pastors assembled here
    from every corner of the world,
    seeks refuge in your motherly protection
    and trustingly begs your intercession
    as she faces the challenges which lie hidden in the future.

    In this year of grace, countless people have known
    the overflowing joy of the mercy
    which the Father has given us in Christ.
    In the particular Churches throughout the world,
    and still more in this centre of Christianity,
    the widest array of people have accepted this gift.
    Here the enthusiasm of the young rang out,
    here the sick have lifted up their prayer.
    Here have gathered priests and religious,
    artists and journalists,
    workers and people of learning,
    children and adults,
    and all have acknowledged in your beloved Son
    the Word of God made flesh in your womb.
    O Mother, intercede for us,
    that the fruits of this Year will not be lost
    and that the seeds of grace will grow
    to the full measure of the holiness
    to which we are all called.

    Today we wish to entrust to you the future that awaits us,
    and we ask you to be with us on our way.
    We are the men and women of an extraordinary time,
    exhilarating yet full of contradictions.
    Humanity now has instruments of unprecedented power:
    we can turn this world into a garden,
    or reduce it to a pile of rubble.
    We have devised the astounding capacity
    to intervene in the very well-springs of life:
    man can use this power for good, within the bounds of the moral law,
    or he can succumb to the short-sighted pride
    of a science which accepts no limits,
    but tramples on the respect due to every human being.
    Today as never before in the past,
    humanity stands at a crossroads.
    And once again, O Virgin Most Holy,
    salvation lies fully and uniquely in Jesus, your Son.

    Therefore, O Mother, like the Apostle John,
    we wish to take you into our home (cf. Jn 19:27),
    that we may learn from you to become like your Son.
    "Woman, behold your son!"
    Here we stand before you
    to entrust to your maternal care
    ourselves, the Church, the entire world.
    Plead for us with your beloved Son
    that he may give us in abundance the Holy Spirit,
    the Spirit of truth which is the fountain of life.
    Receive the Spirit for us and with us,
    as happened in the first community gathered round you
    in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost (cf. Acts 1:14).
    May the Spirit open our hearts to justice and love,
    and guide people and nations to mutual understanding
    and a firm desire for peace.
    We entrust to you all people, beginning with the weakest:
    the babies yet unborn,
    and those born into poverty and suffering,
    the young in search of meaning,
    the unemployed,
    and those suffering hunger and disease.
    We entrust to you all troubled families,
    the elderly with no one to help them,
    and all who are alone and without hope.

    O Mother, you know the sufferings
    and hopes of the Church and the world:
    come to the aid of your children in the daily trials
    which life brings to each one,
    and grant that, thanks to the efforts of all,
    the darkness will not prevail over the light.
    To you, Dawn of Salvation, we commit
    our journey through the new Millennium,
    so that with you as guide
    all people may know Christ,
    the light of the world and its only Saviour,
    who reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit
    for ever and ever.

    On Sunday, October 8, 2000, at the conclusion of the Jubilee of the Bishops, Pope John Paul II and the bishops entrusted themselves and the Church in the new millennium to Mary.
