I salute thee, holy Angel
who didst comfort my Jesus
in His agony,
and with thee I praise the most holy Trinity
for having chosen thee
from among all the holy Angels
to comfort and strengthen Him
who is the comfort and strength
of all that are in affliction.
By the honoUr thou didst enjoy
and by the obedience,
humility and love wherewith
thou didst assist the sacred Humanity of Jesus,
when He was fainting for very sorrow
at seeing the sins of the world
and especially my sins,
I beseech thee to obtain for me
perfect sorrow for my sins;
deign to strengthen me In the afflictions
that now overwhelm me,
and in all the other trials,
to which I shall be exposed henceforth and,
when I find myself in my final agony.

Her livid flesh the scourges streak.
In pity for her Savior's woes,
Her days and even nights are closed. ... continue reading
