MARIAN PRAYERS OF SAINT BONAVENTURE # 2 (A.D. 1218-1274)

Have mercy on me, O Lady,
for my enemies have trodden upon me every day:
all their thoughts are turned to evil against me.
Stir up fury, and be mindful of war:
and pour out your anger upon them.
Renew wonders and change marvelous things:
let us feel the help of your arm.
Distill upon us the drops of your sweetness:
For you are the cupbearer of the sweetness of grace.
