Exeter Cathedral - 6

Here is the stained glass window in the Lady Chapel. To the left we see the Annunciation, in the middle the Nativity with the shepherds and the wise men, and to the right we see the Crucifixion with Our Lady and John at the foot of the cross. Today we focus on this last scene, as we celebrate the Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Sing we, too, of Mary's sorrows,
Of the sword that pierced her through,
When beneath the cross of Jesus
She his weight of suffering knew,
Looked upon her Son and Saviour
Reigning high on Calvary's tree,
Saw the price of our redemption
Paid to set the sinner free.

Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God:
That we may be worthy of the promises of Christ.
