Consoling Our Sorrowful Mother

As I was praying the sorrowful mysteries – on the fifth mystery, in fact – I found myself imagining I was at the foot of the cross, next to the Blessed Mother, attempting, vainly it seemed, to console her as her Son died before us. It occurred to me that when we pray the Rosary, or any Marian prayer, we are consoling Mary in her sorrows, by showing her how much her Son is loved. And if we console His mother, are we not pleasing the son?
Just a thought.
