Our Lady of Guadalupe to Juan Diego

Do not be troubled or weighed down with grief. Do not fear any illness or vexation, anxiety or pain. Am I not here who am your mother. Are you not under my shadow and protection.

Virgin Of Sorrow

Icon of Madonna Mother of God (Mary) and Jesus Christ on mahogany and gold


Virgin of sorrow at the cross
your Jesus little child once held
now crushed for sins hangs bleeding
while your heart a sword is piercing
touch my heart to know contrition pleading.

Rose of Sorrow at the cross
a mother’s tears like no other
flow for me whose sins have caused such loss
touch my heart with love dear mother
that I might share your bitter sorrow
