Holy Mother, pierce me through,
In my heart each wound renew,
Of my Savior crucified.
"O sorrowful Virgin, unite me at least to the ignominies and wounds of your Son, so that both He and you may find comfort in having someone sharing your sufferings. Oh, how happy I would be if I could do this! For is there perhaps anything greater, sweeter or more advantageous for man? Why do you not grant me what I ask? If I have offended you, be just and pierce my heart. If I have been faithful to you, leave me not without a reward: give me your sorrows."
~ St. Bonaventure
