Why Our History Matters (with Anna Mitchell)

Snippet From the Show
If we know how God has operated in the past, if we know how his faithful have operated in the past, we can more easily recognize when he or they are operating today and we can recognize the power of their intercession in our lives.

This week’s guest is Anna Mitchell, producer and host of the Son Rise Morning Show on Sacred Heart Radio. Anna is a dear friend and longtime colleague, and I just love her take on ways to recognize that God is active in our lives today. She shares about Our Lady of Sorrows, teaching kids about redemptive suffering, and more.

Prayer of Consecration to Our Lady of Sorrows

O kind and good Mother, whose own soul was pierced by the sword of sorrow, look upon us while, in our sickness, we arraign ourselves beside you on the Calvary where your Jesus hangs.

Dowered with the high grace of suffering, and hopeful of fulfilling in our own flesh what is wanting in our sharing of Christ’s passion, on behalf of his Mystical Body, the Church, we consecrate to you ourselves and our pain. We pray that you will place them on that Altar of the Cross to which Jesus is affixed. May they be little victims of propitiation for our salvation, for the salvation of all peoples.

O Mother of Sorrows, accept this consecration. Strengthen our hopeful hearts, that as partakers of Christ’s sufferings we may also share in his comfort now and for evermore. Amen.
