In Gedenken an die unglückliche Queen of Scots
Her Majesty the Queen Mary Stuart
Queen of Scots
(* 8.12.1542 in Linlithgow Palace/West Lothian + 8.2.1587 in Fotheringhay Castle)
"O my Lord and my God, I have trusted in Thee.
O my dear Jesus, now liberate me.
In shackle and chain, in torture and pain, I long for Thee.
In weakness and sighing, in kneeling and crying,
I adore and implore Thee to liberate me."
(Mary Queen of Scots, Mittwoch 8.02.1587 kurz vor ihrer Hinrichtung)
