O Blessed Mother,

How did you feel when

You learned you were pregnant

Outside of wedlock?

===

O Blessed Mother,

How did you feel when

The anonymous, thronging crowds

Ignored you in your hour of need in Bethlehem?

==

O Blessed Mother,

How did you feel when

You experienced birth pangs,

As well as the stresses of parenthood?

===

O Blessed Mother,

How did you feel when

Your eldest son confused you,

Then seemed to reject you?

===

O Blessed Mother,

How did you feel when

You watched your eldest son die?

===

O Blessed Mother,

How did you feel when

You buried your eldest son?

===

O Blessed Mother,

How did you feel when

You discovered your resurrected son?

===

O Blessed Mother,

How did you feel when

You ascended and became

Queen of Heaven?

===

O Blessed Mother,

Strong and humble,

Faithful and human,

Intercede for us.

Amen.
