Stabat Mater

The fresco by Fra Angelico is one of those painted on the walls of the monastery cells in San Marco.

On Fridays walk the way of the Cross with the Sorrowful Mother accompanying her son Jesus to the Cross.

Cuius animam gementem,
contristatam et dolentem
pertransivit gladius.

Through her heart, His sorrow sharing,
all His bitter anguish bearing,
now at length the sword has passed.
