THE WAY OF THE CROSS

by Ramon A. Pedrosa

(Also called Stations of the Cross, Via Crucis, and Via Dolorosa).

It is no idle tradition which asserts that the Blessed Mother  used to visit daily the scenes of her Son's passion and death. The Way of the Cross then is the closest we shall ever get to joining Our Blessed Mother on her own passion and suffering as she experiences for us the pain of the piercing sword that Simeon at the Temple prophesied of her. The best way to follow Our Lord’s injunction to take up our Cross is to follow the example of  the Blessed Mother in her own Via Dolorosa.

WE FLY TO THY PATRONAGE

by Ramon A. Pedrosa

WE fly to thy patronage, O holy Mother of God;

despise not our petitions in our necessities,

but deliver us always from all dangers,

O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.

Sub tuum praesidium confugimus, Sancta Dei Genetrix.

Nostras deprecationes ne despicias in necessitatibus nostris,

sed a periculis cunctis libera nos semper,

Virgo gloriosa et benedicta. Amen.
