Roman Catholic Novenas to Angels
Novena is derived from the Latin word novem, meaning nine. A novena is a nine day period of public or private prayer to obtain special graces, to ask for special favors, or make special petitions. In a novena you ask an angel or Saint to intercede for you before the lord. The prayers of the novena are to be said for nine consecutive days. The novena is a spiritual exercise to help increase the faith of the individual saying it. The individual should always remember the goodness of the Lord who answers all of our prayers according to His divine will.
|Novena to the Angels
Come, let us worship the Lord in the company of his angels.
Reading Ex 23:20-21a
See, I am sending an angel before you to guard you on the way and bring you to the place I have prepared.
Let us entreat the Lord that, with the angels who do his will,
Father with great wisdom you direct the ministry both of Angels and human beings. Grant that those who always minister to you in heaven may also defend us during our life on earth. We ask this in the Name of Jesus the Lord. Amen
|Novena to Our Guardian Angel
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 and love and for
the benefits which you have obtained for me!
