The Psalter of the Blessed Virgin Mary by St. Bonaventure – Psalm XVI


O Lady, favorably hear the justice of my prayer, and remove from me tribulations.

I will confess thee with words of joy, when thou shalt have made thy mercy to shine upon me.

Imitate her, holy virgins of God, as Agnes, Barbara, Dorothy, and Catherine should be imitated.

Honor her by the words of thy mouth; thus it is that Agatha, Lucy, Margarita and Cecilia, have obtained her favor.

She will give thee for thy husband, the Son of thy Father, and a crown of incomparable glory formed of the lilies of paradise.

Glory, &c.
