January 14 St. Felix of Nola

You should frequently invoke your guardian angel, this kindhearted angel. Often repeat the beautiful prayer, “Angel of God, my guardian—to whom the goodness of the heavenly Father entrusts me—enlighten, protect, and guide me, now and forever.” What a consolation will be yours when, at the hour of death, you will behold this good angel who accompanied you during life and was so generous in his motherly care of you. Oh, may this delightful thought make you increasingly fond of Jesus’ cross, as this is also the wish of your good angel.

-St. Pio of Pietrelcina

 

Angel of God

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

Amen.
