These prayers are based on the words of the Archangels that appeared to the Franciscan sister, Mother Mariana on January 20, 1610. On this night, Mother Mariana was praying to Our Lord, Jesus Christ to be able to offer some proof of her strong love for Him. Her love for Christ rivaled that of the angelic spirits. As a result of this prayer, the three archangels appeared to Mother Mariana to strengthen and prepare her for the appearance of Our Lady with all of the prophetic messages she was to give her and for the encouragement to obey the request for a statue to be made for this devotion. She would also have the aid of St. Francis of Assisi.
Prayers to the Archangels:
Prayer to St. Gabriel
Dear St. Gabriel, celestial ambassador of the Incarnation of the Divine Word, illuminate my intelligence so that I may know and understand the truths of our Catholic Faith.? Erase all of my doubts that I might have in regards to God’s mercy and justice.? Through the intercession of Our Lady of Good Success and Mother Mariana, please grant my request. Amen
St Gabriel, pray for us!
Prayer to St. Michael
Dear St. Michael, celestial defender of the Faith, strengthen my weak heart and expand it that it might receive the abundance of divine grace.? Secure in me the virtue of humility; help me to realize my unworthiness and ignorance so that I may be freed from any danger from the proud evil spirits who disobeying God hurled themselves from Heaven into the deep abyss.? Through the intercession of Our Lady of Good Success and Mother Mariana please grant this request. Amen
St Michael, pray for us!
Prayer to St. Raphael
Dear St. Raphael, celestial messenger from Heaven and remedy of Divine Love, cure my blindness of the mind so that I may believe in the Way, the Truth and the Life.? Illuminate my mind and heart so that I may realize that in all of the sufferings and crosses that I may endure in this life, I receive graces and favors as Our Lord wishes to give me so that He may lead me on the pathway to Heaven. Through the intercession of Our Lady of Good Success and Mother Mariana, please grant this request. Amen
St Raphael, pray for us!
Prayer to the Archangels
Holy Princes and faithful messengers of the Sovereigns of Heaven, I thank thee for the lights with which thou hast illuminated my understanding and strengthened by heart and dissipated the blindness of my eyes. I, who am the least of all of the creatures that exist upon the earth, praise the Lord for all of the marvelous things He has done in me.
Dear Archangels, I, who am deserving of nothing, beseech thee, go now to Our Lord and Our Lady of Good Success and intercede for me, as this poor servant desires to prostrate himself before them and submit to whatever they desire. As my heart and my entire being belongs to them, may I, like a small drop of dew, lose myself in the immensity of the Divine Being. Amen.
Prayer to St. Francis of Assisi
St Francis of Assisi, Seraphic Father who assists all souls who invoke you, intercede for me in these difficult times of spiritual hunger and emptiness. Pray to Our Lady of Good Success so that I may increase in virtue, bless and support me so that I may finally be found worthy to enter into Eternal Happiness. Amen
