to Your Guardian Angel for the Relief of the Holy Souls
said for nine consecutive days.
ANGEL, whom God,
by the effect of His goodness and His tender regard
for my welfare, has
charged with the care of my conduct, and who assists me in all
my wants and comforts
me in all my afflictions, who supports me when I am discouraged
and continually obtains
for me new favors, I return thee profound thanks, and I
earnestly beseech thee,
O most amiable protector, to continue thy charitable care
and defense of me against
the malignant attacks of all my enemies. Keep me away
from all occasions
of sin. Obtain for me the grace of listening attentively to thy
holy inspirations and
of faithfully putting them into practice, In particular, I implore thee
to obtain for me the
relief and deliverance of all the Souls in Purgatory, the ones who
prayed for the Souls
themselves while still on earth; the forgotten and abandoned Souls;
the souls of my relatives
and friends; the souls of priests and religious; the souls of all
those to whom I am
obligated by charity to pray for and may have neglected by laxity
in memory; and most
especially for the Soul I here name in this novena.

me in all the

hour of my death, and
do not leave me until thou hast conducted me into the
presence of my creator
in the mansions of everlasting happiness. Amen.
