  • Prayer in Memory of Ruth Bader Ginsburg Oh Lord, we thank you for the blessings that Ruth Bader Ginsburg brought to the lives of all Americans. She fought for and won equal rights for women and minorities and those in need. She stood for and helped to make real the ideals and hopes of our constitution. Oh Lord, now that she is with You, may her spirit, ideals, and interpretations of our laws continue to bless us, everyone. She was and is, according to Jewish tradition, a true Tzaddick, a personification of your commands of love, justice and mercy for all Americans. by Dr. Eugene Fisher Profiles in Catholicism

  • A Prayer for Ruth Bader Ginsberg We will miss our beloved Ruth every moment of every day. We ask you Lord to grant her your infinite love for eternity by Gordon Nary Profiles in Catholicism

  • A Prayer for Ruth Bader Ginsberg Good and Gracious God, I was on my way to dinner with my daughter-in-law when the death of your beloved government leader Justice Ginsberg was announced.  Meredith, my daughter-in-law knew as did I that there weren't adequate words to speak of how special she was to many of us.  As a symbol of her goodness, Meredith wore a necklace with the lace collar displayed in the middle of her neck. The lace necklace that she wore in court, like the robes that Mother Mary wore, symbolized her speaking up for the rights of women when women were not well heard, unfortunately, still prevalent in the lives of many women today.  Ruth attempted to get a job in a law firm in New York and was denied as she was a woman similar to Mother Mary when there was no room at the inn for Jesus to be born. She was considered a liberal and was best friends with Justice Scalia, similar to the relationship of St. Paul and St. Peter. The respect they had for each other gave us the example of inclusion and respect as you included the Samaritan woman when no one else would and that you ask us to mirror throughout our lives.  We spoke about Justice Ginsberg's fairness but determination to assist others as you did, as we see throughout the Gospels. We talked about all the issues that you'd like us to imitate: her kindness, her sense of humor, her intelligence, her willingness to put her life on the line to help women succeed. We ask you to help us demonstrate, as Justice Bader did those qualities that are so important to the continuation of Your Kingdom. Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Lord, called us to a state of perseverance to make secure those aspects of her life that need to be immortalized similar to your suffering and death.  Her treatment of her ill husband, dear Jesus, is the treatment you asked us to give each other in your suffering and death. Ruth lived a life of consistent and constant giving of herself to her husband and to the society that she took seriously. We ask you to bless our society, help us to take the initiative in which we use the gifts you gave each of us dear Jesus as Justice Ginsberg did, with women and men who live a life similar to her life and the Gospel stories. We ask you this in the name of the Father, Your Son, and the Holy Spirit. by Eileen Quinn Knight, Ph.D. Profiles in Catholicism
