Today we observe The Feast of Our Lady at The Foot of The Cross 🙏⛪️ ———————————————————————
Prayer to the Virgin at the Foot of the Cross ——————————————————————— Holy Mary,
Woman of sorrow,
And Mother of all the living,
We greet you!
You are the new Eve,
The Virgin bride at the Cross
Where love is consummated
And life comes forth.
Mother of disciples,
Inspire us to serve.
Teach us to stand with you
At the foot of those countless crosses.
Where the Son of Man is still being crucified;
Make us living witnesses of Christian love,
Welcoming everyone as brother and sister.
Help us to escape our blindness
To follow Christ, the light of all peoples.
O Holy Virgin of Easter,
And glory of the Spirit,
Receive the prayer of your Servants.
Amen. ——————————————————————— Tag someone who could benefit from this post! We will continue to share a piece of The Grotto with you each day until Masses resume and our gardens open. We hope this feature brings you joy. May you, too, experience the peace our visitors and pilgrims encounter in the spiritual and natural beauty of our holy sanctuary. ——————————————————————— Look to the bottom of our most recent Facebook posts to see the special resources #thegrottopdx is providing right now, and how you can help support us during this difficult time.
