Novena in Honor of St. Raphael, Archangel


℣. O God, come to my assistance;

℟. O Lord, make haste to help me.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost: as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

O Christ, Splendor of the Father, Life and Strength of the heart, in the presence of the Angels we celebrate Thee by our prayers and hymns, uniting our voices with their melodious concerts. We praise with reverence all the celestial Princes, but especially the Archangel St. Raphael, the faithful Companion by whose power the Devil was enchained.

O Christ, King full of goodness, by this guardian remove far from us all the wickedness of the enemy; purify our hearts and our bodies, and by Thy sole clemency, introduce us into Paradise. In harmonious concerts let us give thanks to the Father, glory to Jesus Christ and to the Comforter, God three in One, living before all ages. Amen.

Ave.

St. Raphael, pray for us.

Christ, the glory of the Angel choirs!
Of man the Maker and Redeemer blest!
Grant us one day to reach those bright abodes,
And in Thy glory rest.

And Raphael, physician of the soul,
Let him descend from his pure halls of light,
To heal our sicknesses and guide for us
Each dubious course aright.

Thou, too, fair Virgin, Daughter of the skies!
Mother of light and Queen of Peace! descend;
Bringing with thee the radiant court of Heaven
To aid us and defend.

This grace on us bestow, O Father blest,
And Thou, 0 Son by an eternal birth;
With thee, from both proceeding, Holy Ghost,
Whose glory fills the earth. Amen.

℣. Pray for us, St. Raphael.

℟. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray:

O God, who to Tobias, Thy servant, when on his journey, didst give blessed Raphael the Archangel, for companion; grant that we who are also Thy servants, may likewise be safeguarded by his watchfulness, and be made strong by his help. May he who we faithfully believe ever to stand before Thy Majesty, offer up our prayers to be blessed by Thee; through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

Beginning October 15 [May be said in public or private. i. 300 Days, each day. ii. Plenary once during the Novena. I, II, IV. See Instructions, p. 1, 1910 Raccolta ]
