“You are the glory of Jerusalem, the surpassing joy of Israel; you are the splendid boast of our people.” Jdt. 15:9
Heavenly Father, we pray this through the intercession of the Mother of your Son, Mary Immaculate, the new Ark of the Covenant. Help us who have been baptized into Christ to live like her in fidelity to his covenant of love. May she help us daily to withdraw into your presence in prayer. Since she is the Gate of Heaven, may she help us to pray for the dying and the dead. Lord, with her support, we entreat you to bring them to dwell with you forever in the heavenly Jerusalem. We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
