When praying the "Hail Mary", I find my eyes watering on the part where we say "pray for us poor siners, now and at the moment of our death,..."
Being new to prayer I found this part a bit pathetic as me being a beggar who abused my divine mother quite a lot (a fornicator, liar, masturbator, weed smoker, slanderer, arrogant) for me to ask this seems out of place.
And so those tears, am I making her sad or is she crying for me?
I love her and adore her but don't seem to understand her.
Any thoughts
Thank you

Tears can serve the expiation of the heart. People who don’t cry over grievous errors are divorced from their own souls.

Oftentimes, the way to reconcile ourselves with our Divine Mother is through tears. We rebel against Her when we refuse to listen to our own conscience.

The Divine Mother laments when the soul divorces itself from Her and no longer has remorse.

You can better understand Her by meditating on your heart, communicating to Her your needs, failings, and aspirations. She speaks to us when we put our desires aside and learn to listen without expectation.
