Celebrate Lent with the Stabat Mater Dolorosa Copywork Set in Latin and English
This Stabat Mater Dolorosa Copywork Set focuses on the beautiful Latin hymn that is thought to be created during the 13th century. Many sources consider it to be one of the seven greatest hymns of all time. Our Lady's experience of the Passion and death of her beloved Son, Jesus Christ, is the theme of this poetic work. The twenty verse couplet features lyrics that reference Simeon’s prophecy to the Blessed Virgin Mary at the Presentation (Luke 2:35).
Each sheet in the Stabat Mater Dolorosa Copywork Set features one of the twenty verses of the hymn in English as well as Latin. Because the images used are non-threatening, kids of any age can color or decorate the pages. Teachers may encourage students to use the handwriting lines provided to either copy out the verses or write an original prayer. The line-spacing used is suitable for new writers or those perfecting their cursive handwriting skills.
