Pater noster, qui es in caelis ,

sanctificetur nomen tuum .

Adveniat regnum tuum .

Fiat voluntas tua ,

sicut in caelo, et in terra .

Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie ,

et dimitte nobis debita nostra ,

sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris .

Et ne nos inducas in tentationem ,

sed libera nos a malo .

Amen .

Saint Raphael, lead us towards those we are waiting for, those who are waiting for us! Raphael, Angel of Happy Meetings, lead us by the hand towards those we are looking for! May all our movements, all their movements, be guided by your Light and transfigured by your Joy.

Angel Guide of Tobias, lay the request we now address to you at the feet of Him on whose unveiled Face you are privileged to gaze. Lonely and tired, crushed by the separations and sorrows of earth, we feel the need of calling to you and of pleading for the protection of your wings, so that we may not be as strangers in the Province of Joy, all ignorant of the concerns of our country.

Remember the weak, you who are strong–you whose home lies beyond the region of thunder, in a land that is always peaceful, always serene, and bright with the resplendent glory of God. Amen

Mary, Mother most pure, and Joseph, chaste guardian of the Virgin, to you I entrust the purity of my soul and body. I beg you to plead with God for me that I may never for the remainder of my life soil my soul by any sin of impurity. I earnestly wish to be pure in thought, word and deed in imitation of your own holy purity. Obtain for me a deep sense of modesty, which will be reflected in my external conduct. Protect my eyes, the windows of my soul, from anything that might dim the luster of a heart that must mirror only Christ-like purity. And when the “Bread of Angels” becomes my food in Holy Communion, seal my heart forever against the suggestions of sinful pleasures. Finally, may I be among the number of those of whom Jesus spoke, “Blessed are the pure of heart for they shall see God.” Amen


#10

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of thy mercy. Amen.

Holy Archangel Raphael,
standing so close to the throne of God
and offering Him our prayers,
I venerate you as God’s special Friend and Messenger.
I choose you as my Patron
and wish to love and obey you as young Tobias did.
I consecrate to you my body and soul,
all my work, and my whole life.
I want you to be my Guide and Counsellor
in all the dangerous and difficult problems
and decisions of my life.
Remember, dearest Saint Raphael,
that the grace of God preserved you with the good angels in heaven
when the proud ones were cast into hell.
I entreat you, therefore,
to help me in my struggle against the world,
the flesh, and the devil.
Defend me from all dangers
and every occasion of sin.
Direct me always in the way of peace, safety, and salvation.
Offer my prayers to God as you offered those of Tobias,
so that through your intercession
I may obtain the graces necessary for the salvation of my soul.
Remember me and always entreat for me
before the Face of the Son of God.
Help me to love and serve my God faithfully,
to die in His grace, and finally to merit to join you
in seeing and praising God forever in heaven. Amen.
