Guardian Angel Prayer

This version was contained in the Pastoral Letter by Cardinal Nichols

Dear Guardian Angel, go for me to the church, there kneel down at Mass for me.

At the Offertory, take me to God, and offer Him my service: What I am, what I have, offer as my gift.

At the Consecration, with your seraphic strength, adore my Saviour truly present, praying for those who have loved me, for those who have offended me, and for those now deceased, that the blood of Jesus may purify them all.

During Holy Communion, bring to me the Body and Blood of Jesus uniting Him with me in spirit, so that my heart may become His dwelling place. Plead with Him, that through His sacrifice all people throughout the world may be saved.

When the Mass ends, bring home to me and to every home, the Lord’s blessing. Amen.

Spiritual Communion Prayer

My Jesus, I believe that you
are in the Blessed Sacrament.
I love you above all things,
and I long for you in my soul.
Since I cannot now receive you
Sacramentally, come at least
spiritually into my heart.
As though You have already
come, I embrace You and unite
myself entirely to You;
never permit me to be
separated from You. Amen.

Reparation and Consecration

L: Most adorable Saviour, prostrate before the altar where Thou art really present, I come to make reparation for all the injuries and ingratitude inflicted on Thy loving Heart, O divine Jesus; grant me to make a fitting reparation for all the sacrileges ever committed, for the want of devotion and the neglect of preparation and thanksgiving for Holy Communion, and for the coldness of my own Communions

A: Pardon, O Lord, pardon for so many souls who know Thee not and who do not love Thee. By the fervour of my love I wish to make amends to Thee for all the sins committed against Thee.

Grant me the grace, dear Lord, to love Thee in the most Holy Sacrament of the altar with generous and constant love. Loving Jesus, I give Thee my heart and I consecrate myself wholly to Thee out of the grateful love I bear Thee as a reparation for all my unfaithfulness, and with Thy grace, I will not sin again. Mary, my dearest Mother, obtain for me a true devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, and a tender love for thee, that I may ever serve thee as thy devoted child.

Guardian Angel Prayer

O HOLY ANGEL at my side,
Go to Church for me,
Kneel in my place, at Holy Mass,
Where I desire to be.

At Offertory, in my stead,
Take all I am and own,
And place it as a sacrifice
Upon the Altar Throne.

At Holy Consecration’s bell,
Adore with Seraph’s love,
My Jesus hidden in the Host,
Come down from Heaven above.

Then pray for those I dearly love,
And those who cause me grief,
That Jesus’ Blood may cleanse all hearts,
And suff’ring souls relieve.

And when the priest Communion takes,
Oh, bring my Lord to me,
That His sweet Heart may rest on mine,
And I His temple be.

Pray that this Sacrifice Divine,
May mankind’s sins efface;
Then bring me Jesus’ blessing home,
The pledge of every grace. Amen

Prayer Before Benediction

O Jesus, Who art about to give Thy Benediction to me, and to all who are here present, I humbly beseech Thee that it may impart to each and all of us the special grace we need. Yet more than this I ask. Let Thy blessing go forth far and wide. Let the weak and tempted feel its power wherever they may be. Let poor sinners feel its influence, arousing them to come to Thee. Grant to me, O Lord, and to all here present, a strong personal love of Thee, a lively horror of sin, a higher esteem of grace, great zeal for Thy honour and glory, for the interest of Thy Sacred Heart, for our own sanctification, and for the salvation of souls. Amen.

St Francis de Sales Prayer

Do not look forward in fear to the changes and chances  of this life; rather, look to them with full confidence that, as they arise, God, to whom you belong, will in his love, lead you safely through all things.

He has guided you thus far in life, and He will lead you safely through all trials; and when you cannot stand it, God will carry you in His arms.

Do not fear what may happen tomorrow; the same understanding Father who cares for you today will take care of you then and every day.

He will either shield you from suffering or will give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace then and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations.
