St Raphael Prayer

For today’s feast, my favorite archangel of the three.

Raphael,
lead us toward those
we are waiting for,
those who are waiting for us.
Raphael, Angel of happy meeting,
lead us by the hand
toward those we are looking for.
May all our movements
be guided by your Light
and transfigured with your joy.

Angel, guide of Tobias,
lay the request we now address to you
at the feet of Him
on whose unveiled Face
you are privileged to gaze.
Lonely and tired,
crushed by the separations and sorrows of life,
we feel the need of calling you
and of pleading for the protection of your wings,
so that we may not be as strangers in the province of joy,
all ignorant of the concerns of our country.
Remember the weak,
you who are strong,
you whose home lies beyond the region of thunder,
in a land that is always peaceful,
always serene and bright with the resplendent glory of God.
