Sts. Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, Archangels
Today is the day that Denis and I begin our journey to Medjugorje!! I am comforted that this is the Feast of the Archangels, Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. May they accompany us and protect us as we travel.
Prayer to St. Michael to Protect the Church and her Members
O Glorious St. Michael, guardian and defender of the Church of Jesus Christ, come to the assistance of this Church, against which the powers of hell are unchained, guard with especial care her august head, and obtain that for him and for us the hour of triumph may speedily arrive. O glorious Archangel St. Michael, watch over us during life, defend us against the assaults of the demon, assist us especially at the hour of death; obtain for us a favorable judgment, and the happiness of beholding God face to face for endless ages. Amen.
Prayer to St. Gabriel the Archangel
O Blessed Archangel Gabriel, we beseech thee, do thou intercede for us at the throne of divine Mercy in our present necessities, that as you did announce to Mary the mystery of the Incarnation, so through your prayers and patronage in heaven we may obtain the benefits of the same, and sing the praise of God forever in the land of the living. Amen.
Prayer to St. Raphael the Archangel
O glorious Archangel, St. Raphael, great Prince of the heavenly court, illustrious for your gifts of wisdom and grace, guide of those who journey by land or sea, consoler of the afflicted, and refuge of sinners: I beg you to assist me in all my needs and in all the suffering of this life, as once you did help the young Tobias on his travels. And because you are the “Medicine of God,” I humbly pray to you to heal the many infirmities of my soul, and the ills which afflict my body, it if be for my greater good. I especially ask of you an angelic purity, which may fit me to be the temple of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
We will be continuing our usual schedule as much as possible while we in Medjugorje. Hour of Mercy and the Daily Rosary will be at their usual times. My reflections may be less regular, depending on our pilgrimage schedule. I will try to give you updates as we go along. But I also want to take time just for prayer. So forgive me if I don’t keep up with the reflections on a daily basis.
We will be praying for all of you and your intentions. We are a part of each other, because we are all a part of Our Lady, as she told us once:

“Dear children…. I desire for all of you to be with me in eternity, because you are a part of me. I will help you on your way. My love will envelop you like a mantle and make of you apostles of my light – of God’s light…”
