Notes - 1889

Thou art the glory of Jerusalem, the ornament of the heavenly city, where thou dost ravish the angels and the saints. Thou art the joy of Israel, of the Church wandering here below like Israel in the desert, surrounded by enemies, threatened and exposed like Israel in the time of Judith. Thou art the honor of thy people, of all the human race, raised by thee after its fall, and especially of thine own sex, freed from shame, and honored in thee.

J.P. Petitalot, 1889
