October 29 St. Narcissus of Jerusalem

They shall carry on their shoulders the bloody standard of the cross, the crucifix in their right hand and the rosary in their left, the sacred names of Jesus and Mary on their hearts, and the modesty and mortification of Jesus Christ in their own behaviour.

-St. Louis de Montfort

 

Prayer to Grow in Grace through Sorrows

Most holy Virgin and Mother, your soul was pierced by a sword of sorrow in the Passion of your Divine Son, and in His glorious Resurrection you are filled with never-ending joy at His triumph. Obtain for us who call upon you the grace to partake in the trials of the Church and the sorrows of the Pope so that we may be found worthy to grow in grace and rejoice with them in the consolations for which we pray, in the love and peace of the same Christ our Lord.

Amen.
