St John Brebeuf, St Issac Jogues and Companions Martyrs

Blessed feast of St Jean de Brebeuf, St Issac Jogues and Companions! Very grateful to have been able to find and pray at the exact site of St Ignace II where Sts Jean de Brebeuf and Gabriel Lalemant where martyred for their Faith, and to be at Saint Mary among the Hurons where they are buried. 
O blessed martyrs, how deep is your joy now! Please pray for us as we struggle with the Crosses we carry that one day we may come to that same deep joy and love that you possess, forever. Amen!

Education! and Our Lady of Sorrows, Our Lady of Fatima!

Things I've been thinking about:

Prayer to our Sorrowful Mother for a particular grace
O, mother most holy and sorrowful, Queen of Martyrs, you who stood by your Son as He agonized on the cross; by the sufferings of your life, by that sword of pain that pierced your heart, by your perfect joy in heaven, look down on me kindly as I kneel before you, sympathizing with your sorrows and offering you my petition with childlike trust. 
Dear Mother, since your Son refuses you nothing, ask of His Sacred Heart to mercifully grant what I ask, through the merits of His sacred passion, along with those of your sufferings at the foot of the cross.

Mother most merciful, to whom shall I go in my misery if not to you who pities us poor sinful exiles in this valley of tears? In our name, offer Jesus but one drop of His most precious blood, but one pang of His loving heart. Remind Him that you are our sweetness, our life and our hope, and your prayer will be heard. Amen


Our Lady of Fatima!
