In Times Like These

The end times are upon us. This can not be denied. Are we prepared?  An answer of , “I hope so,” is not good enough. We cannot gamble with the eternal destiny of our souls. It is with a certain amount of urgency that I write this blog today.

For starters, I am sharing three short prayers that I believe we should arm our family members with, as we start the day.

The Anima Christi (as dictated by Rev. Fr. Levi Burgos)

Soul of Christ, sanctify me

Body of Christ, save me

Blood of Christ, inebriate me

Water from the side of Christ, wash me

Passion of Christ, strengthen me

O good Jesus, hear me

Within Your wounds, hide me

Never let me be separated from You

From the malignant enemy, defend me

At the hour of death, call me

And bid me come to You

That I may praise You

In the company of Your saints

For all eternity, Amen.

Prayer to our Guardian Angel (thanks to my kindergarten teachers)

Angel of God, my guardian dear

To whom God’s love, commits me here

Ever this day, be at my side

To light and guide

To rule and guard, Amen.

Armor of God (excerpt from Linda Schubert’s excellent prayer book, “Miracle Hour”)

I put on God’s armor

to resist the devil’s tactics.

I stand my ground

with truth buckled around my waist

and integrity for a breastplate.

I carry the shield of faith

to put out the burning arrows of the evil one.

I accept salvation from God to be my helmet

and receive the Word of God

from the Spirit to use as a sword.

Amen.

I hope that the reader who decides to recite all three prayers daily, will find comfort knowing that he/she has Divine protection. God bless you!
