Our Lady's Tear's LLC has recently completed its second production - the trailer can be viewed above. This documentary is complimentary to our movie on the life of St. Germaine Cousin. This production examines our current society's problems with venereal disease and obesity as reflections of our growing Godlessness and lack of willingness to suffer, then presents the Catholic theology of redemptive suffering.

Hospitallers of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem caring for the sick
by Philippe Thomassin
I have been remiss as of late in posting and also in my poor efforts to promulgate devotion to Our Lady's Seven Sorrows. Thus begins the first of a new series of prayers for the sick through the intercession of our Sorrowful Mother. In these fine prayers we ask our Heavenly Mother to intercede upon the sick person's behalf in honor of her sorrows - a devotion which pleases Jesus very much. Following this series for the sick will be a series of prayers for the dying.
Prayers fo a Sick Person
Queen of Martyrs and Mother of Compassion, by the sword of sorrow which pierced thy soul, when holy Simeon foretold the most cruel Passion and death of thy beloved Son, obtain that the sick person for whom we pray may no more be tormented in his/her body, if it be for the greater good of his/her soul.
