Part 4. – Concluding Prayer For the Protection of all whom we Love

 

 

The Church applies to each member the Lord’s words to the people of Israel.

“See I am sending an Angel before you, to guard you on the way and bring you to the place I have prepared. Be attentive to him and heed his voice.”

(Exodus 23: 20 and 21)

V. In the presence of the Angels I will sing Your praise, O my God.

R. I will worship at your holy temple, and give thanks to your name.

Amen.

 

Christ, glory of the holy Angels, Creator and Redeemer of mankind, grant that we may ascend to heaven to live there with the blessed.

May Michael, the Angel of peace, come from heaven into our homes, bringing fair peace with him and banishing wars to hell.

May Gabriel, the Angel of strength, come to banish our old enemies and to revisit the temples, dear to heaven, which Christ in triumph has placed in all parts of the world.

 

May Raphael, the Angel-physician of man’s health, be with us to heal all that are sick and to guide all who are in doubt and uncertainty.

May the Virgin, queen of peace And the Mother of light, together with the holy company of Angels and the radiant court of heaven ever be our help and defence.

May the blessed God, whose glory resounds through all creation, Father, Son and likewise the Holy Spirit, grant us this.

Amen.
