PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF THE ANGELS.
Origin of Devotion vid.
Today’s celebration, though an optional memorial in the Roman Missal, is a solemnity or feast in some countries and dioceses. Let us take advantage of today’s celebration to honor Our Lady under this advocation and ask Her loving maternal intercession and that of the Holy Angels to protect us from evil so as to be always in the right path which God paves for us.
PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF THE ANGELS
August Queen of Heaven,
sovereign queen of Angels,
you who at the beginning
received from God
the power and the mission to crush the head of Satan,
we beseech you humbly,
send your holy legions so that,
on your orders and by your power,
they will track down demons,
fight them everywhere,
curb their audacity and plunge them into the abyss.
Who can be compared to God?
Oh good and tender Mother,
you will always be our love and our hope.
Oh divine Mother,
send the Holy Angels and Archangels to defend me
and to keep the cruel enemy far from me.
Holy Angels and Archangels defend us,
protect us. Amen.
