It is a tradition in the Catholic Church to pray special prayers called a novena nine days before an important feast. The Feast of Our Lady Woman of Valor is an important feast in the Pastoral Center for Migrants in Tel Aviv and it is celebrated on the Saturday closest to May 10. We publish here the prayer of the eighth day of the novena.

woman of valor

8. The latter splendor of this house shall be greater than the former, says the Lord of hosts; and in this place I will give peace. (Haggai 2:9)
Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all. (Proverbs 31:29)

Lord, through the intercession of Our Lady Woman of Valor, we beg you for peace in this region and in each of our own countries of origin. Make us artisans of peace through the practice of justice and charity. We confide to you all victims of conflicts and violence and their loved ones so that they might find their consolation in you.

Our Father
