Breviary Hymn:

 Be Merciful, Christ, to Your servants for whom our Advocate, the Virgin, asks the Father’s Mercy at the Throne of Grace. Be present to us, Raphael: your name means Healing of God.Drive away all bodily sickness and bring health of  Grace to our souls.

 Blessed Hosts of Angels, divided into nine choirs, drive away from us past, present and future evils.  Drive the faithless far from Christian countries that the one Shepherd may rule us all as His only fold.  Glory be to God the Father. May He Guard through His Angels those whom the Son has Redeemed and the Holy Spirit has Anointed.


 Book Of Tobias (Tobit) 12: 15-22

For I am the angel Raphael, one of the seven, who stand before the Lord.

 And when they had heard these things, they were troubled, and being seized with fear they fell upon the ground on their face. And the angel said to them: Peace be to you, fear not.

For when I was with you, I was there by the Will of God: bless ye Him, and sing praises to Him. I seemed indeed to eat and to drink with you: but I use an invisible meat and drink, which cannot be seen by men. It is time therefore that I return to Him that sent me: but bless ye God, and publish all His Wonderful Works.

And when he had said these things, he was taken from their sight, and they could see him no more. Then they lying prostrate for three hours upon their face, blessed God: and rising up, they told all His Wonderful Works.

 St. Raphael, pray for us and heal us through +Jesus +Mary +Luisa!
