Our Lady of Sorrows

Prayer to the Sorrowful Mother

Most holy Mother of Sorrows, by that soul-piercing martyrdom thou didst undergo at the foot of the Cross during the three hours' agony of Jesus, deign to assist me also, who am the child of thy Sorrows, in my agony, so that by thine intercession I may be found worthy to pass from my deathbed to thy blessed society in Paradise.

V. From a sudden and unprovided death,
R. Deliver me, O Lord.
V. From the snares of the devil,
R. Deliver me, O Lord.
V. From everlasting death,
R. Deliver me, O Lord.

Let us pray.
O God, Who for the salvation of mankind hast made for us in the most bitter death of Thy Son both an example and a refuge; grant, we beseech Thee, that we may be found worthy to obtain the fruit of His great love in our final peril at the hour of death, and to be made partakers of our Redeemer's glory. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

A Post!

Twas the last annual pro-life night at Kiddie Land. Sniff sniff...but us kiddies had fun while it lasted! Nice pictures, eh?

The day after Labor day I started another year of high school! Woot! At the beginning of almost every the year I find myself really excited about my new books, organizing and schedueling but weeks later or minutes later I find myself not following my own scheduel....

Day Two of school and guess where I am?! The fair, of course! I was obligated to go becuase my talented little violin virtuoso brother was in a "Fiddle Contest." The song on "My Playlist" thing is the beautiful song he played and guess what?! He came in 3rd place! Not bad for his first contest! Congrats, Jacob! Then, after he performed he won the "fire truck red" music stand they were raffling off. Lucky!....A loto ticket for his birthday next week dosen't sound like a bad idea right now. Oh, and I decided to post a picture of our adorable pet bunny who died a month or two ago. Almost every year the "Easter Bunny" leaves a bunny for my family. This bunny obviously didn't last very long. We don't know how or why it died. Dad said he fed it in the morning and that evning he found the poor thing dead in its cage- the rest of us were conveniently out of town that day. His name was "Paul Harvey." Paul, the year of St. Paul and Harvey, the movie. RIP, Paul!
