Our Lady of Sorrows

For today's Memorial of Our Lady of Sorrows, here is the text of the Collect from Mass, followed by Vivaldi's setting of the sequence Stabat Mater Dolorosa.

Father, as Your Son was raised on the cross,
His mother Mary stood by Him, sharing His sufferings.
May Your Church be united with Christ
in His suffering and death
and so come to share in His rising to new life,
where He lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen
