Ave Maria MeditationsHeavenly King, You have given us archangels
to assist us during our pilgrimage on earth.
Saint Michael is our protector;
I ask him to come to my aid,
fight for all my loved ones,
and protect us from danger.
Saint Gabriel is a messenger of the Good News;
I ask him to help me
clearly hear Your voice
and to teach me the truth.
Saint Raphael is the healing angel;
I ask him to take my need for healing
and that of everyone I know,
lift it up to Your throne of grace
and deliver back to us the gift of recovery.
Help us, O Lord,
to realize more fully the reality of the archangels
and their desire to serve us.
Holy angels, pray for us.
INVOCATIONS TO THE HOLY GUARDIAN ANGEL
Holy Angel, my counselor, inspire me; Holy Angel, my defender, protect me;
Holy Angel, my faithful friend; intercede for me;
Holy Angel, my consoler, fortify me; Holy Angel, my brother, defend me;
Holy Angel, my teacher, instruct me;
Holy Angel, witness of all my actions, purify me;
Holy Angel, my helper, support me;
Holy Angel, my intercessor, speak for me;
Holy Angel, my guide, direct me; Holy Angel, my light, enlighten me;
Holy Angel, whom God has assigned to lead me, govern me.
The Blessed Sacrament is fittingly called the “Bread of Angels” because of the ardent love with which the angels cherish the Sacred Host and the profound adoration which they render to the hidden God.
Unite your intention with that of your guardian angel to adore the Blessed Sacrament. Our Angel helps us to personal union with God, who wishes to enter our hearts How willing our angel is to pray with us, to strengthen us in our prayers and sacrifices. They join invisibly with us in adoration. (Susan Tassone)
