Devotions in Honor of St. Raphael


How to Use St. Raphael Devotions


To use Saint Raphael devotional prayers, start by finding a quiet and peaceful place where you can focus your thoughts and intentions. Begin by invoking the presence of Saint Raphael, either through reciting a prayer or simply calling upon his name. You can then proceed to recite one or more devotional prayers, such as the Prayer to Saint Raphael for Healing or the Novena prayer to Saint Raphael. As you recite the prayers, focus on your intention and ask Saint Raphael for his intercession and guidance. When you are finished, take a moment to express gratitude for his presence and assistance. Repeat this practice as often as you like, and trust in Saint Raphael's loving and healing power.

Glory be to the Father...


Most perfect Archangel St. Raphael, ever standing before the throne of the Most High to praise Him, to bless Him, to glorify Him and to serve Him, obtain for me the grace never to lose sight of the divine presence , so that my thoughts, my words, and my works may be directed always to the glory of God and to my own sanctification.

Prayer to Saint Raphael for Help

O Glorious Archangel, St. Raphael, great prince of the heavenly court, illustrious by thy gifts of wisdom and grace, guide of travelers by land and sea, consoler of the unfortunate and refuge of sinners, I entreat thee, help me in all my needs and in all the trials of this life, as thou didst once assist the young Tobias in his journeyings. 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 ill that afflict it, if this favor be 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.

Amen.



Prayer for Health

From the little office of the Holy Angels

O Raphael of the glorious seven stand before the throne of Him who lives and reigns, Angel of Health, the Lord hath filled thy hand with balm from Heaven to soothe or cure our pains. Heal or console the victims of disease, and guide our steps when doubtful of our ways.



"Angel of Happy Meetings" Prayer

Translated from the French of Ernest Hello

Dear St. Raphael, Angel of Happy Meetings, lead us by the hand toward those we are waiting for and those who are waiting for us. May all our movements , all their movements, be guided by thy light and transfigured by thy joy.

Angel guide of Tobias, lay the request we now address to thee at the foot of Him on whose unveiled face thou art privileged to gaze (Mention your request here). Lonely and weary, deeply grieved by the separation and sorrows of Earth, we feel the need of calling out to thee and of pleading for the protection of thy wings so that we may not be as strangers in the province of joy.

Remember the weak, thou who art strong, whose home lies beyond the region of thunder, in a land that is always peaceful, always serene and bright with the resplendent glory of God.

Amen
