With Mary at the foot of the Cross

With Mary at the foot of the Cross: Servite Feast Day, March 23rd

God, our Father, in the mystery of your love you bring the passion of your Christ to its fulfilment in the suffering of his members.  Grant that, as his compassionate Mother stood at the cross of her dying Son, we, as her servants, may stand at the crosses of our suffering brothers and sisters to bring comfort and healing love. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
