Pieta Prayer.

 Mother of Sorrow, you who hold Jesus in your arms,please intercede with your Divine Son on our behalf.Ask Him to help us to know one another better,to forgive one another more readily,to love one another more deeply. Mother of all mankind,inspire us to travel without falter along the road a the end of which,under the fatherhood of God, there is true peace.

This is the original prayer said before the statue of the Pieta, at the Vatican Pavilion in 1964 at the World’s Fair in NYC.

“Ask and you shall receive”(John 16:24)
