Feast of the Holy Guardian Angels

God’s love for us was not satisfied with giving us His Son, Jesus, for our Redeemer, and Mary for our Advocate; He has been pleased to give us also His Angels to be our guardians: “He hath given His Angels charge over thee: to keep thee in all thy ways” (Ps. 90:2). These holy spirits and princes of heaven are always present with us, and assist us in all our actions. And on this account, out of regard to our guardian Angels, we ought carefully to refrain from every action which can displease them.

Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom His love commits me here, ever this day be at my side to light and guard to rule and guide. Amen

We pray that every (well, most) night, although sometimes Maria is already in bed.

I have heard Dr. Kreeft propose that many of our modern societal problems may be the result of a reduced use of the St. Michael prayer.

Interesting. That would then be one more beneftit to the spread of the Traditional Mass insofar as the St. Michael prayer is said by the congregation after each low Mass.

We should also encourage the recitation of the St Michael prayer on a daily basis by all Catholics... for instance, whenever we get in the car, we recite it, along with the prayer to St Joseph and the Memorare. We say these prayers when we get in the car because it is something we do at least once a day every day!
