The women call upon holy Wilgeforte against the abuses of authority of their husband.
Holy Wilgeforte was a young virgin whom her father wanted to force with the marriage. Holy Wilgeforte requested God to disfigure her and, the following day, God having her answered, she presented herself to her father with a long beard. Furious of this resistance and this wonder, he did her crucify.
Holy Wilgeforte is particularly honoured in Beauvais.
Blessed Virgin, Mother of my God, my Mother and my Owner, I put myself under your protection and I throw myself with confidence in the center of your mercy.
Give me softness and patience and made that my tender and my obedience soften towards me the feelings of the husband whom the Sky gave me.
Ô my Sovereign, Ô my Mother, remember that I belong to you and defend me like your good and your property. Amen.
He’s you, Ô my God, who gave me this husband, that I cherished and that you enable me to like. But as you are jealous God, you want to be the first object of my love and to hold the first place in this heart which you formed; thus grant to me, Ô my Saver, to give it to you this first place that I owe you with so much of titles; made that this being to which me bound you, doesn’t carry it on you in my heart, which he holds to with it only the second rank: but also that after the divine love the marital love fills me very whole, that nothing never diverts me, and that I fill the duties constantly that you imposed to me towards that which you gave me for husband. That after happiness you to like, find any me only in the nodes which link us, and which we mutually excite ourselves to like you, to be useful to you and to devote themselves every moment of our life. Condescend, Seigneur, to prolong that of my husband, to save him dangers to which his profession exposes him, and to make him feel as with me, which the principal one, the single business whose Christian must occupy himself, is that of his safety, for which I ask you for your graces, grateful that without you we cannot anything. Amen.
