Preparatory Prayers for the Rosary of the Seven Sorrows

Ave Maria Meditations

        Preparatory Prayers:

Introductory Prayer: My God, I offer You this Rosary for Your glory, so I may honor the Mother of Jesus, the Blessed Virgin, so I can share and meditate upon her suffering and, through her, the suffering of Jesus. I humbly beg You to give me true repentance for all my sins, wisdom, and humility.

    —Act of Contrition: O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended You, and I detest all my sins because I dread the loss of Heaven and the pains of hell; but most of all because they offend You, my God, You Who are all good and deserving of all my love.  I firmly resolve, with the help of Your grace, to confess my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life. Amen.    

—Then pray 3 Hail Marys: In compassion for our Sorrowful Mother’s tears and to offer our tears in union with hers.    

–Before Each Mystery, Pray: Most Merciful Mother, remind us always about the Sorrows of your Son, Jesus.

Our Lady found this unworthy lukewarm person and obtained for her the grace to enter the Third Order of the Franciscans of the Immaculate. May this person spend all eternity in showing her gratitude.
