Judith stood by Holofernes’ bed and prayed silently, “O Lord, God of all might, in this hour look graciously on the work of my hands for the exaltation of Jerusalem. Now is the time for aiding your heritage and for carrying out my design to shatter the enemies who have risen against us.” (Judith 13:4-5)


Judith was a pious Jew of the Old Testament. She killed Holofernes, the leader of the Assyrian army of Nebuchadnezzar, with a sword, saving the Israelite nation.

Judith is a type of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of Jesus, whose "Fiat" brought salvation to all mankind.
