Prayer to Our Lady of Sorrows , comforter the afflicted
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.
From a sudden and unprovided death,
Deliver us, O Lord.
From the snares of the devil,
Deliver us , O Lord.
From everlasting death,
Deliver us , 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.

Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God
and our most compassionate Mother,
we present ourselves in thy sight in all humility,
and with full confidence we implore thee for thy maternal patronage.
Thou hast been proclaimed by Holy Church
the Comforter of the Afflicted,
and to thee constant recourse
is had by the sorrowful in their afflictions,
the sick in their maladies, the dying in their agony,
the poor in their straitened circumstances,
those who stand in all manner of need in both public
and private calamities;
and from thee they all receive consolation and strength.
Our dearest Mother, turn upon us also,
wretched sinners that we are, thy merciful eyes,
and graciously accept our humble and confident prayers.
Aid us in all our spiritual and temporal necessities;
deliver us from all evil, and especially from sin,
which is the greatest evil, and from all danger of falling into it;
obtain for us from thy Son Jesus
every blessing of which thou seest we stand in need,
both in soul and in body, and especially the greatest blessing of all,
which is Divine grace.
Comfort our spirits, troubled and afflicted
in the midst of the many dangers that threaten us and
in the countless miseries and misfortunes that beset us on every side.
This we ask through that immense joy
which filled thy pure soul in the glorious Resurrection of thy Divine Son.
Obtain tranquility for Holy Church,
help and comfort for her visible Head, the Roman Pontiff,
peace for Christian princes,
refreshment in their pains for the Holy Souls in Purgatory;
for sinners, the forgiveness of their sins, and for the just,
perseverance in well-doing.
Receive us all, our most tender Mother,
under thy loving and mighty protection,
that we may be enabled to live virtuously,
die holily and attain to everlasting happiness in heaven. Amen.

Eternal Father, I offer You the most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus Christ , in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the Universal Church, for those in my own home and in my family. Amen
WEAR THE GARMENT OF GRACE ~~ BROWN SCAPULAR ~~
O Mary, Queen and Mother of Carmel, I come today to consecrate myself to thee, for my whole life is but a small return for the many graces and blessings that have come from God to me through thy immaculate hands.
Since thou look with special kindness on those who wear thy Scapular, I implore thee to strengthen my weakness with thy power, to enlighten the darkness of my mind with thy wisdom, and to increase in me Faith, Hope and Charity that I may repay each day my debt of humble homage to thee.
May thy Holy Scapular bring me thy special protection in my daily struggle to be faithful to thy Divine Son and to thee. May it separate me from all that is sinful in life and remind me constantly of my duty to imitate thy virtues.
From now on, I shall strive to live in God's Presence, and offer all to Jesus through thee. Dearest Holy Mother, support me by thy never-failing love and lead me to paradise through the merits of Christ and thy own intercession. Amen.
