As we start a new academic year we pray for everyone in our Campion Community.  We especially pray for the repose of the soul of Mary Baines, retired Headteacher of St Margaret Mary and St Joseph’s (Nechells), who was a great supporter of our school and Catholic Education in this city.

Our Tuesday ‘voluntary Mass’ will continue to be held in the Chapel at 8.25 am.  This is a great opportunity to fit this most sacred of celebrations into your week.  If you would like to read at this Mass, please see Mr Oxley.

Soon we will be celebrating our House Masses at The Abbey Church and we thank Father Gabby, Father Dickerson, Father Joe and Father Eddie for providing this wonderful opportunity. September is traditionally dedicated to the Seven Sorrows (or Dolours) of Mary, and the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows falls in September. The Sorrows are: the prophecy of Simeon, the flight into Egypt, the loss of the Holy Child at Jerusalem for three days, meeting Jesus on his way to Calvary, standing at the foot of the Cross, Jesus being taken from the Cross, and the burial of Christ.

 

PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF SORROWS

O most holy and afflicted Virgin! Queen of Martyrs! thou who didst stand motionless beneath the Cross, witnessing the agony of thy expiring Son--through the unceasing sufferings of thy life of sorrow, and the bliss which now more than amply repays thee for thy past trials, look down with a mother's tenderness and pity on me, who kneel before thee to venerate thy dolours, and place my requests, with filial confidence, in the sanctuary of thy wounded heart; present them, I beseech thee, on my behalf, to Jesus Christ, through the merits of His own most sacred death and passion, together with thy sufferings at the foot of the cross, and through the united efficacy of both obtain the grant of my present petition. To whom shall I resort in my wants and miseries if not to thee, O Mother of Mercy, who, having so deeply drunk of the chalice of thy Son, canst compassionate the woes of those who still sigh in the land of exile? Offer for me to my Saviour one drop of the Blood which flowed from His sacred veins, one of the tears which trickled from His divine eyes, one of the sighs which rent His adorable Heart. O refuge of the universe and hope of the whole world, do not reject my humble prayer, but graciously obtain the grant of my petition.
