Mary With A Tear, Monday of the Third Week of Lent





"Let me share with thee His pain,
Who for all my sins was slain,
Who for me in torment died.

Virgin of all Virgins best!
Listen to my fond request:
Let me share thy grief divine.

O how sad and sore distressed,
Was that Mother highly blest.
Of the sole begotten One!"


Song - AT THE CROSS HER STATION KEEPING (STABAT MATER DOLOROSA)

Gosh, wouldn't it just break your heart, Micki. This is a lovely piece of art too: the complexion is so warm and alive (|I wish mine was the same!). Beautiful, thank you.
Best Regards, Lynneda

Our Lady shed profuse tears at LaSalette and the messages she gave read like a description of the world we are in today. We must try to dry her tears by our sacrifices and prayers, especially during this time of Lent.
