...The herold taps three time on the gate with his rod.

Herald: "Her Majesty Zita, by the grace of God Empress of Austria, Apostolic Queen of Hungary, Queen of Bohemia, Dalmatia, Croatia, Slavonia, Galicia, Lodomeria and Illyria, Queen of Jerusalem etc.; Archduchess of Austria, Grand Duchess of Tuscany and Cracow, Duchess of Lorraine, Salzburg, Styria, Carinthia, Carniola and Bucovina; Grand Princesse of Transylvania, Margravine of Moravia; Duchess of Upper and Lower Silesia, Modena, Piacenza and Guastalla, of Auschwitz, Zator, Teschen, Friuli, Ragusa and Zara; Princely Countess of Habsburg and Tyrol, Kyburg, Görz and Gradisca; Princess of Trent and Brixen; Margravine of Upper and Lower Lusatia and in Istria; Countess of Hohenems, Feldkirch, Bregenz and Sonnenberg, etc.; Lady of Triest, Cattaro and in the Windic march; Grand Voivode of the Voivodeship of Serbia; née Princess Royal of Bourbon, Princess of Parma, etc."

Capuchin friar: "We know her not."

The herald knocks again.

Capuchin friar: "Who begs entrance?"

Herald: "Her Majesty Zita, Empress and Queen."

Capuchin friar: "We know her not."

The herald knocks for the third time.

Capuchin friar: "Who begs entrance?"

Herold: "Zita, a mortal, sinful man..."



Prayer for asking the beatification of the Servant of God Empress Zita

God our Father, you redeemed the world by the self-abasement of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. He who was King became the Servant of all and gave his life as a ransom for many, therefore you have exalted him.

We ask you that your servant Zita, Empress and Queen, will be raised upon the altars of your Church. In her, you have given us a great example of faith and hope in the face of trials, and of unshakeable trust in your Divine Providence.

We beseech you that alongside her husband, the Blessed Emperor Charles, Zita will become for couples a model of married love and fidelity, and for families a guide in the ways of a truly Christian upbringing. May she who in all circumstances opened her heart to the needs of others, especially the poor and needy, be for us all an example of service and love of neighbour.

Through her intercession, grant our petition (mention here the graces you are asking for). Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
