O Lord, the angels' sheer delight!
Their life reflects your splendor bright;
as we today their praise declare,
May we their joy forever share.
St Michael, be our refuge here,
Preserve us from all useless fear;
Through you may God his peace bestow
On all nations here below.
St Gabriel, be with us this day,
Reveal God's will to us, we pray;
As Mary once did answer you,
May our response be firm and true.
St Raphael, heal our sinful heart,
May God his grace to us impart,
And may you guide us on the way
That we may never go astray. Amen.
Usually every year we make a "devils food" cake and pierce it with our forks, like St Michael might...but this year I bought a angel food cake and we will make some pudding frosting and have that today along with something with angel hair pasta. We will also color Mathilda's beautiful pictures! On the Feast of the Guardian Angels we just might have to make angel cutout cookies and be angels ourselves and deliver them to friends!
We are SO blessed to be Catholic and know about all this Heavenly Court helping us every day!
St Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray and do thou O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits that prowl about the world, seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
