at my side, my good
and loyal friend, you have been with me since the moment I was born. You are my own personal guardian, given me by God
as my guide and protector, and you will
stay with me till I die. He who created you and me gave me to you as your particular charge. You assisted in great joy at my baptism, when I became part of the Mystical Body of Christ, and was made a member of the household of God
and an heir of heaven. You saw the dangers that beset my path, and, if I sinned, it was in spite of you. You envied me when Christ
came to me in Holy Communion. Even though you probably were there among the angels
that adored Him the night that He was born, you have not been able to receive Him as I can. O, help me to appreciate these gifts! Help me to realize, as you do, with every fiber of my being, that to serve Christ
is to be a King! Help me steadfastly to avoid evil
and do good
and always guard my soul
from sin. Protect me as well from physical evils as I go about my daily work. You will
be with me all my life, and at the hour of my death. Help me to face death bravely, patiently, with great love of God, knowing that it is only through death that I can come to Him in heaven! Then, come with me to my Judge, and when the hour of my salvation
comes, take me home to my Father, God. Amen.
