St Raphael, Pray for us.

Today the Church reminds us of the love of God through the ministry of the holy angels, particularly through the healing of St Raphael, Archangel. St Raphael is one of the seven Spirits that stand before the throne of God. He was the heavenly messenger sent to guide young Tobias on his journey and to heal the blindess of his father.

We invoke him especially for the healing of mental as wel as bodily ailments.

Orémus
Deus, qui beatum Raphaelem Archangelum Tobiae famulo tuo comitem dedisti in via: concede nobis famulis tuis; ut eiusdem semper protegamur custodia et muniamur auxilio. Per Dominum. Amen.
