Prayer to Mary to Embrace the Cross with Patience

Luis de Morales "La Piedad"

O my sweet Lady, you who were innocent endured suffering with so much patience. Why do I, who deserve hell, refuse to suffer at all? My Mother, I now ask you for this favor - not to be delivered from crosses, but to bear them more patiently. For the love of Jesus, I beg you to obtain at least this grace from God. I confidently hope for this from you. - The Glories of Mary by St. Alphonsus di Liguori
