Judith, Chapter 1, Verse 11
But all the inhabitants of the whole land made light of the summons of Nebuchadnezzar, king of the Assyrians, and would not join him in the war. They were not afraid of him, since he was only a single opponent. So they sent back his envoys empty-handed and disgraced.
It seems that Nebuchadnezzar, king of the Assyrians is a legend in his own mind! The people did not respect the authority of the king and his power was not taken seriously. This does not look like it will turn out well. Let us examine ourselves; have we made light of God’s grace that has been given us and shunning our duties by refusing to join Him in war with evil? These are troubled times.
Prayers to Be Said In Time of Trouble
Look down, O Holy Father, from Thy sanctuary in heaven, Thy dwelling-place, and behold this sacred victim which our great High Priest, Thy holy, innocent, and well-beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, offers to Thee for the sins of us His brethren, and let not Thy wrath be kindled on account of the manifold transgressions of the world. Behold the voice of the blood of our brother, Thy first-born Son, Jesus, cries to Thee from the cross. Give ear, O Lord, be appeased; O Lord, hearken, and do ; tarry not for our own sake, O our God, for Thy name is invoked upon this house and city, and upon all Thy people; and deal with us according to Thy infinite mercy, through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, etc. Amen.
V. That Thou wouldst vouchsafe to bring us to true penance.
R. We beseech Thee, hear us.
V. That Thou wouldst vouchsafe to defend this house and city, and all Thy people, to keep them in peace; to guard, preserve, and look down on them with Thy most tender pity.
R. We beseech Thee, hear us.
V. Through the holy mysteries of man’s redemption.
R. Let Thy mercies quickly prevent us, O Lord, and spare Thy people.
V. Through the merits and intercession of Thy blessed Mother, and of all the saints.
R. Let Thy mercies, etc, as above.
V. Holy Mary, conceived without original sin, and all angels and saints, intercede for us to Our Lord.
R. That the mercies of our Lord may quickly prevent us; and that He may spare His people, that so we may rejoice with Him forever and. ever. Amen.
Let us pray.
Almighty and merciful God, may Thy most holy will be one at all times and in all things, according to Thy infinite and eternal mercy, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
