Allpeople have GuardianAngels, but we must ask our Angelsfor help before they can intervene.  

Treat your angel likeatrusted friend.  Tell them your thoughts and your dailyconcerns.  Ask them to help with all your important decisions. Your angle communicates to you through yourthoughts.  AskJesus to let you distinguish between heavenlythoughts and the deceptive thoughts seeded by the evil one.  

"Jesus,help me to recognize when my Angel or the Spirit is guiding mythoughts.

Helpme to distinguish and bind thedeceptive thoughts of the evil one.  

Iask this in your most Holy Name Jesus. Amen."

LoricaofSaint Patrick (modified-we)

We arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through a belief in the Threeness,
Through confession of the Oneness
Of the Creator of creation.

We arise today
Through the strength of Christ's birth and His baptism, 
Through the strength of His crucifixion and His burial,
Through the strength of His resurrection and His ascension,
Through the strength of His descent for the judgment of doom.

We arise today
Through the strength of the love of cherubim,
In obedience of angels
in Heaven,
Inservice of archangels for God,
Inthe hope of resurrection to meet with reward,
In the prayers of patriarchs
before Christ,
Inpreachings of the apostles to kingdoms,
Infaiths of confessors and priests,
Ininnocence of virgins and children,
Indeeds of righteous men and women.

We arise today
Through the strength of heaven 
above,
by the Light of the sun
in the sky,
theSplendor of fireand ash,
theSpeed of lightningfrom theclouds,
theSwiftness of the windacross theplains,
theDepth of the sea from theshores,
theStability of the eartharound thesun,
andthe Firmness of the rock in the ground.

We arise today
Through God's strength to pilot us
for ever,
God's might to uphold us
in weakness,
God'swisdom to guide us in thought,
God'seye to look before us in darkness,
God's ear to hear us
in praise,
God'sword to speak for us in wisdom,
God's hand to guard us
in peril,
God'sway to lie before us by example,
God'sshield to protect us from evil,
God'shosts to save us fromdamnation,
Fromsnares of the devil,
Fromtemptations of vices,
Fromevery one who desires us ill,
Afarand a near,
Aloneor in a multitude. 

Wesummon today allthese powers between us and evil,
Against every cruel merciless power that opposes our body and soul,
Against incantations of false prophets,
Against black laws of pagandom,
Against false lawsof heretics,
Against craft of idolatry,
Against spells of women and smiths and wizards,
Against every knowledge that corrupts man's body and soul.
Christ shield us today
Against poison, against burning,
Against drowning, against wounding,
Against storms andfloods and all natural disasters 
that threaten our lives and safety.
 
So that reward may come to us in abundance.


Christ with us, Christ before us, Christ behind us.
Christ in us, Christ beneath us, Christ above us.
Christ on our right, Christ on our left,
Christ when we lie down, Christ when we sit down.
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of us.
Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks of us.
Christ in the eye that sees us.
Christ in the ear that hears us.

We arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through a belief in the Threeness,
Through a confession of the Oneness
Of the Creator of creation.
