Could someone please direct me to where I might find small booklets of the Office of Consolation & the Lamentations of the Mother of God? Thank you!

What do you mean by the Lamentations of the Mother of God?

The Lamentations of Jerusalem Matins, generally sung on Holy Friday evening, are not particularly Marian in tone.

There is a Canon of the Lamentations of the Theotokos on Compline on Great Friday in the Lenten Triodion by Met. Kallistos Ware and the late Mother Mary of Bussy. (I think this has been reprinted by St. Tikhon's Press.)

By Office of Consolation, do you mean the Paraclisis Canon to the Theotokos, frequently chanted during the first two weeks of August? There are several editions of that, but it's not generally called anything but Paraclisis.

There is a Service of Lamentations to be sung before the Shroud of the Theotokos.

There are two Paraclitic Canons to the All-holy Theotokos: the Lesser and the Greater. It is the 'lesser' that is more commonly used, though some churches alter them during the Dormition fast. The Greek editions of the Synekdemos (Vademecum) typically give both.

Yes, I believe what I am looking for is the Paraclisis. I thank everyone for their suggestions & links!
