Lord, you gave St. Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows a special love for your Mother and a compassion for her sorrows. Through her, you raised him to the heights of holiness. Give us great devotion to her sorrows, that we may know her as our loving Mother. 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.
