Yep. This blog was getting me down. First of all, I don’t have a lot of strong opinions about things. My temperament is one of a teacher. I want to impart knowledge about our Catholic Faith. However, the responsibility of writing a blog that is pithy and attractive is escaping me right now. Then I feel guilty over the fact that I am not writing as much as I should. Plus it costs me money every year to keep my name. Now that I am retired, I am looking at everything we spend to be sure that it is necessary. Anyhow, I am still praying and thinking about it.
Which brings me to today’s prayer. I have a Catholic prayer book called “Blessed be God” that I use every single day. It is pre-Vatican 2, so it has some prayers that one doesn’t hear anymore that I pray quite often. Today’s prayer was to the Holy Angels and it touched me so much, I thought I’d share it with you today.
“O Holy Angels, watch over us at all times during this perilous life; O holy Archangels, be our guides on the way to heaven; O heavenly choir of the Principalities, govern us in soul and body; O mighty Powers, preserve us against the wiles of the demons; O celestial Virtues, give us strength and courage in the battle of life; O powerful Dominations, obtain for us dominion over the rebellion of our flesh; O sacred Thrones, grant us peace with God and man; O brilliant Cherubim, illumine our minds with heavenly knowledge; O burning Seraphim, enkindle in our hearts the fire of charity. Amen.”
Have a great day! May your Guardian Angel be at your side today to guide and protect you. Praise God!
