An Engraving of Madame de Lamballe

From Vive la Reine.

Here is a prayer for the soul of the princess:
O Almighty God! O God of kindness, divine Providence! O Holy Trinity for all eternity! Believing fully in the immortality of the soul we humbly beg Thee to reward Louise de Savoye, the unfortunate princess, with the brilliant crown of the martyr, and to admit her into the shining company of the elect, where in her eternal resting place she may sing forever to the glory of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. Amen. De Profundis.
