Day 28 – Saturday, April 1 and 5th Sunday of Lent, April 2
We are late in getting this out – thank you for your patience! It has been a crazy weekend. We will conclude the rest of St. Thérèse’s poem. It is a reminder to call on the help of our Guardian Angels and seek Jesus every day!
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Thank you, dear Jesus, for giving us guardian angels! Thank you for their assistance and care. You always are looking out for us. Help us to believe in your words a little more today!
St. Thérèse teaches us through her poem ‘My Song for Today’ cont’d (stanzas 12-14):
“My Holy Guardian Angel, cover me with your wing,
With your fire light the road that I’m taking.
Come direct my steps … help me. I call upon you
Just for today.
Lord, I want to see you without veils, without clouds,
But still exiled, far from you, I languish,
May your lovable face not be hidden from me.
Just for today.
Soon I’ll fly away o speak your praises
When the day without sunset will dawn on my soul.
Then I’ll sing on the Angels; lyre
The Eternal Today!” – The Poetry of St. Thérèse of Lisieux
Lord Jesus, please help us to remember our guardian angels. Help us remember they are here to aid us and be our guide. Lead us on your path of righteousness so that one day we may see you face to face in heaven!
Our Father …
Hail Mary …
Glory Be …
Merciful Father, in the name of Your sweet Jesus, of the Blessed Virgin and of the Saints, I pray that I be fired with Your spirit of love, and that You will grant me the grace to make You greatly loved. (The daily prayer that St. Thérèse taught us to say, adapted for our little lives.)
St. Thérèse, pray for us!
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
