Bless the Lord, O you his angels,
you mighty in strength who do his word,
hearkening to the voice of his word (Ps 102:20).
O God, who have constituted
in a wonderful order the ministries of angels and men:
be pleased to grant that our life here on earth
may be protected by those who stand in readiness
to serve you in heaven.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, forever and ever.
That the Church throughout the world
may be assisted by the holy angels
in praising God,
in proclaiming the Good News,
and in comforting the afflicted,
to the Lord we pray: Christ, hear us. R. CHRIST, GRACIOUSLY HEAR US.
The world leaders
and those serving in the armed forces
may be enlightened,guided and protected by the hosts of heaven;
and that Saints Michael, Raphael, and Gabriel
may intercede for the peace of the world,
