At the end of Eucharist this morning, the priest concluded the celebration with the following prayer after communion:
“Having been nourished with heavenly Bread,
we, beseech you humbly, O Lord,
that, drawing from it new strength,
under the faithful protection of your Angels,
we may advance boldly along the way of salvation.”
It is a calming and reassuring moment when I call upon my guardian angel and upon Michael the Archangel. The humblest and simplest prayer I know for this efficacious grace comes from a prayer that some of the smallest children learn in Catholic schools. May it bring you the strength you need in time of temptation.
“Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom God’s love commits thee here.
Ever this day be at my side;
to light and guard, to rule and guide.”
