St. Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows, Passionist
Feast Day February 27th
Novena to the Queen of Martyrs
O MOST holy and afflicted Virgin, Queen of Martyrs! Thou who didst stand motionless at the foot of the Cross, beneath thy dying Son - through the sword of sorrow which pierced thee then - through the unceasing suffering of thy life of sorrow, and the bliss which now amply repays thee for thy past trials and afflictions, look down with a mother's tenderness and pity on one who kneels before thee, who venerates thy sacred Dolors, and places his request, with filial confidence, in the Sanctuary of thy Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Present, I beseech thee, to Jesus Christ, in union with the infinite merits of His Passion and Death, thy sufferings at the foot of the Cross; and through the efficacy of both, obtain the grant of my petition. Amen.
Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us who have recourse to thee. Amen.
