Prayer Request: 1

Please remember to pray for the soul of Seamus Heaney, who was buried the other day.

In the words of an anonymous Irish poet from medieval times, making the traditional appeal to Mary, Queen of Poets:

“Speak on my behalf, O Mother Mary.
Place me in Heaven.
Do not come against me with my Accuser;
Speak for me with all your might.

“Answer me so that I may most surely reach you,
Lest I go astray.
Do not let my death go unseen by you,
O Harp of tuneful strings….

“O noble form, O brightest face,
You bore God as Man.
Win from your white Lamb, O Mary,
My direction and my guard….”
