Glorious Archangel St Raphael, great prince of the heavenly court, you are illustrious for your gifts of wisdom and grace.
You are a guide of those who journey by land or sea or air, consoler of the afflicted, and refuge of sinners.
I beg you, assist me in all my needs and in all the sufferings of this life, as once you helped the young Tobias on his travels.
Because you are the “medicine of God”, I humbly pray you to heal the many infirmities of my soul and the ills that afflict my body.
I especially ask of you the favour (mention your request) and the great grace of purity to prepare me to be the temple of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
St Raphael, one of the glorious seven
Before the throne of Him who lives
Angel of health, the Lord has filled
with balm from Heaven to soothe
or cure our pains.
Heal or cure the victim of diseases,
and guide our steps when doubtful
of our ways. Amen.
'Animals have done us no harm and they have no power of resistance. There is something so dreadful in tormenting those who have never harmed us, who cannot defend themselves, who are utterly in our power' .........Cardinal John Henry Newman.
