The Feast of the Holy Guardian Angels

Today the church celebrates The Feast of the Holy Guardian Angels. Let us pray. O God who in Your unfathomable providence are pleased to send Your Holy Angels to guard us. Hear our supplication as we cry to You that we may always be defended by their protection and rejoice eternally in their company.

Invite your children and grandchildren to watch today’s video, as Father Jerry recites the prayer he said every day before recess at St. Rose of Lima school in Chula Vista:

Angel of God, my guardian dear
to whom God’s love commits me here
to ever this day be at my side
to watch and guard, to rule and guide

O Holy patron pray for me
and teach me ever to follow thee
