Catholic Prayer: Table Blessing for the Feast of the Guardian Angels

Description:

Feast of the Guardian Angels is October 2

Prayer:

Reading They come, God's messengers of love, they come from realms of peace above, from homes of never-fading light, from blessful mansions ever bright. Lord, to us the zeal of angels give, with love to serve you while we live; To us an angel-guard supply, when on the bed of death we lie. (Robert Campbell)

Responsory Verse: God gave his angels charge over us, Response: to protect us in all our ways.

The Lord's Prayer

Blessing Almighty God, our creator, we unite with the choir of angels to sing your praises daily. And today, we give you thanks for giving the angels to us, as messengers of your mysteries and as protectors of our bodies and souls. Grant us to share this meal in peace, joy, and thanksgiving, being always mindful of the unfailing protection of our guardian angels. We ask you this, through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
