Prayer to Our Lady, Queen of Palestine

O Mary Immaculate, gracious Queen of Heaven and Earth, we come before you full of confidence in your goodness and boundless power.   We beseech you to cast a pitying glance upon Palestine, which, more than any country belongs to you, since you graced it with your birth, virtues and sorrow and from where you gave us the Redeemer of the world.   Remember that there you were constituted our tender mother and mediatrix of graces.   Watch, therefore, with special protection over your native country, scatter from it the shades of error, for it was where the Sun of Eternal Justice shone.   Bring about the speedy fulfilment of the promise, which came from your divine Son, that there should be one fold and one shepherd.   Obtain for us all that we may serve the Lord in sanctity and justice during the days of our life, so that by the merits of Jesus and with your motherly aid, we may pass at last from this earthly Jerusalem to the splendours of heaven.   Amen
