PRAYERS TO MARY

***

All the saved souls pray:

Let Dante be allowed to

See God face to face

***

NOTE:

In his prayer to Mary, Saint Bernard asks Mary for a favor, but a favor for Dante, not for himself.

In his prayer to Mary, Saint Bernard prays that Dante be allowed to see God face to face.

In his prayer to Mary, Saint Bernard says that he burns to help Dante.

In his prayer to Mary, Saint Bernard prays that Dante be protected when he returns to Earth as a living man.

 The last time that Beatrice is referred to in The Divine Comedy, she is adding her prayer to that of Saint Bernard. Beatrice — and the other souls in Paradise — are praying to Mary that she allow Dante to see God face to face.
