I know you’re already doing your Novena for St. Michael presently, but one more won’t hurt!  Or, make that two more, because tomorrow starts the Novena for St. Therese of the Child Jesus!

O Holy Angel, whom God, by the effect of His goodness and His tender regard for my spiritual welfare, has charged with the care of my 273b30cc-53e4-4349-898b-80f2025c09aeconduct, and who assists me in all my wants and comforts me in all my afflictions, who supports me when I am discouraged and continually obtains for me new favours, I return thee profound thanks, and I earnestly beseech thee, O most amiable Protector, to continue thy charitable care and defence of me against the malignant attacks of all my enemies. Keep me away from all occasions of sin. Obtain for me the grace of listening attentively to thy holy inspirations and of faithfully putting them into practice. In particular, I implore thee to obtain for me the favour which I ask for by this novena.
[Here mention your intentions]
Protect me in all the temptations and trials of this life, but more especially at the hour of my death, and do not leave me until thou hast conducted me into the Divine Presence of my Creator in the Mansions of everlasting happiness. Amen.
O most faithful companion, appointed by God to be my Guardian, and who never leaves my side, how shall I thank you for your faithfulness GuardianAngel5004-1-1and love and for the benefits which you have obtained for me!
You watch over me when I sleep; you comfort me when I am sad; you avert the dangers that threaten me and warn me of those to come; you withdraw me from sin and inspire me to good; you exhort me to penance when I fall and reconcile me to God.
I beg you not to leave me. Comfort me in adversity, restrain me in prosperity, defend me in danger, and assist me in temptations, lest at any time I fall beneath them. Offer up in the sight of the Divine Majesty my prayers and petitions, and all my works of piety, and help me to persevere in grace until I come to everlasting life. Amen.

Pray this Novena as a family!
I find that children who especially inculcate a very strong relation with their holy guardian angels tend to do be very blessed throughout their life!  Your guardian angel loves you very much and watches out for you constantly, remember to ask them to intercede for you always!

Thank you for the beautiful prayer. I like it better than the one I have.
Also, last week, you had St. Michael’s novena but isn’t it for the 3 archangels now. Am I right in thinking that in the past, the 3 archangels feasts day was not combined? My dad’s birthday was October 24th and his named was Rafael. Mexican people used to name their kids after the saint on whose feast day they were born.

Hey, we did that with Benedict, born July 11!

It is the Feast of St. Michael in the 1962 calendar, and all the archangels in the Novus Ordo/1970 calendar.

Hi, Tantum! I have been keeping this novena, and thank you so much for the opportunity. I am reading Ferdinand Mount, his Full Circle, the thesis of which is that we have fallen again into pagan culture, and since he is not a Catholic, he argues both sides and is paralyzed between the notion that although tboth ancients and modeerns lack the morals and the vision behind the morals, they had the science. He is wrong, of course; neither the ancients nor the modernists realized the complexity of the unseen world where the secrets of creation live. They were operating under similar technological constraints. It is only recently that we have been able to access the real world via the super microscopes and abandon the world of speculation regarding the possibilities, those limited by the human eye, which is all the ancients and the modernists had. They both observed life ‘spontaneously’ blooming in putrid water and drew incorrect conclusions. Their explanation of creation necessarily involved some idea of evolution because they could not know the pattern present in the cell; ours need not. I urge reading Signature in the Cell (Meyer) to see how we have only recently come of age in this regard, and belief in a Creator is mathmatically supported, applying the maths of odds-making to the explanation of chance for the many layers of DNA present in the most rudimentary life. Math says it didn’t happen the way evolutionists explian it, the concrete chances being a trillion in a trillion that the intricacy could have occured by random events. Like saying the backpacks at Boston just appeared there and detonated by chance. Like saying your cell phone sprang spontaneously out of nature. The odds are too great, such a theory would be inadmissible in any court.

But meanwhile you have the fact that for thousands of years believers have lived with the taunt, You believe in magic, you believe there is someone listening to your stupid prayers. Superstitious idiots! Etc. etc. etc. ad nauseum. Until it has become default. And what is the antidote for that, if more science is the antidote for the bad science of evolution?

Prayer. Effective prayer. Prayer for specific intentions, as this one has. I’m praying it with all my heart. Go, God, change the world for me. You have the power and I have the love!

Yeah. We believe in magic. The maths say so.
