PRAYER TO S. RAPHAEL, ARCHANGEL.
Glorious Archangel, S. Raphael, great
the heavenly court, illustrious by thy gifts of wisdom
and grace, guide of travellers by land
and sea, con-
soler of the unfortunate and refuge of sinners, I
entreat thee to help me in all my needs
and in all the
trials of this life, as thou didst once assist the young
Tobias in his journeying. And
since thou art the
"physician of God", I humbly pray thee to heal my
soul of its many infirmities and
my body of the ills
that afflict it, if this favor is for my greater good.
I 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 prayer
An indulgence of one hundred days, once a day.
