Send Your Angel to Mass

holy_michael_2.jpgFr. Alessio Parente OFM Cap. used to assist St. Pio in his daily sufferings and duties. He has written several devotional works over the years. This delightful little book has a poem inside which is worth pondering for its simple truths; if work, distance, or illness make attendance at daily mass difficult its verses provide grounds for hope;

O holy Angel at my side
Go to the church for me
Kneel in my place at Holy Mass
Where I desire to be.

At Offertory, in my stead
Take all I am and own
And place it as a sacrifice
Upon the altar throne.

At holy Consecration's bell
Adore with seraph's love
My Jesus hidden in the Host
Come down from heav'n above.

Then pray for those I dearly love
And those who cause me grief
That Jesus' Blood may cleanse all hearts
And suffering souls relieve.

And when the priest Communion takes
Oh, bring my Lord to me
That His sweet Heart may rest on mine
And I His temple be.

Pray that this Sacrifice Divine
May mankind's sins efface;
Then bring me Jesus' blessing home-
The pledge of every grace.

Simple, yet profound... Ask the Lord to impart a special blessing to your guardian angel. After all their help and protection it's the least we can do in gratitude! And we can cooperate with them and give them profound joy by making visits to the Blessed Sacrament in our spare time.
