Feast of the Archangels

If you are feeling scared or vulnerable, call on Archangel Michael, and ask him to give you courage and protection to help you through.

Archangel Gabriel, please bring me the clarity to know what to keep and what to move on from.

When your family relationships are going through difficulties, call on Archangel Raphael to help to restore peace and harmony.

imageWhat a comfort to you it is to know that when we go out of the house, we are never alone en route.

If you find it impossible to pray, hide behind your good Angel and charge him to pray in your stead.

After thanking our Guardian Angel who has remained by our side during our sleep, we should ask him for his protection during the day.   St. John Vianney
