Sorrowful Mysteries for Holy Vocations : Return to start
From the Mass for the Gift of Tears
Bishops’ Plenary Meeting held in Dallas on June 14, 2002
Ezekiel 18:21-23, 30-32
Turn and be converted from all your crimes.
1 John 1:5–2:2
The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin.
Mark 1:1-8, 14-15
Repent and believe in the Gospel.
Almighty and most gentle God, who from a rock made flow a fountain of living water for your thirsting people, draw now from the hardness of our hearts tears of sorrow that we may weep for our sins and, by your continued mercy, be made ready to accept their pardon. We ask this through our Lord, Jesus Christ, amen.
Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners
now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen!
For those who have sinned within or against vocations …
|Together we pray:|
Oh my Jesus, forgive us our sins,
save us from the fires of hell;
lead all souls to Heaven,
especially those most in need of Your Mercy.
