PRAYER TO S. RAPHAEL, ARCHANGEL.
Archangel, S. Raphael, great prince of
the heavenly court, illustrious by thy gifts of wisdom
guide of travellers by land and sea, con-
soler of the unfortunate and refuge of sinners, I
thee to help me in all my needs and in all the
trials of this life, as thou didst once assist the young
in his journeying. And since thou art the
"physician of God", I humbly pray thee to heal my
its many infirmities and my body of the ills
that afflict it, if this favor is for my greater good.
ask, especially, for angelic purity, that I may be
made fit to be the living temple of the Holy Ghost.
His Holiness, Leo XIII., by a rescript of the S. Congr. of
Indulgences, June 21, 1890, granted to the faithful who shall
recite the above
An indulgence of one hundred days, once a day.
