Regem Archangelorum Dominum, Venite adoremus, alleluia.

Deus, qui miro ordine Angelorum ministeria hominumque dispensas:
concede propitius; ut a quibus tibi ministrantibus in coelo semper assistitur,
ab his in terra vita nostra muniatur.
Per Dominum...

Let us pray
O God, Who hast ordained and constituted the services of angels and men in a wonderful order, mercifully grant that as Thy holy angels alway do Thee service in heaven, so, by Thy appointment, they may succour and defend us on earth.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ...

Angele Dei

Ángele Dei,
qui custos es mei,
me, tibi commíssum pietáte supérna,
illúmina, custódi,
rege et gubérna.
