St. Bonaventure, Virgin and Child

Psalm 6

Lady, let me not be corrected in the wrath of God: nor be judged by Him in His anger. For the honor of thy name, O Lady: may the Fruit of thy glorious womb be propitious to us. From the gate of hell and from the depths of the abyss: by thy holy prayers deliver us. May the eternal gates be opened unto us: that we may declare forever thy wondrous works. For it is not the dead, nor those in hell, who will praise thee, O Lady: but those who by thy grace will obtain eternal life.
