All Covered with Blood and Wounds

(Note: The following post was made previous to my conversion to Eastern Orthodoxy.)

This post is in honor of Our Sorrowful Mother, whose feast is observed both September 15th as well as the Friday before Good Friday.

O Mary, Mother of Sorrows,

I beseech Thee,
by the bitter agony thou didst endure at the foot of the Cross
offer to the Eternal Father, in my name,
thy Beloved Son, Jesus,
all covered with Blood and Wounds,
in satisfaction for my sins,
for the needs of Holy Church,
the conversion of sinners,
the relief of the Souls in Purgatory
and for the special grace I now implore.

(mention your request)

Amen.
