Guardian angel, by Pietro da Cortona, 1656

Angel of God is a catholic traditional prayer to the guardian angel.



Angel of God,

my guardian dear,
to whom God's love commits me here,
ever this day,
be at my side
to light and love,
to rule and guide.


Latin original version

Ángele Dei,

qui custos es mei,
me, tibi commissum pietáte supérna,
hodie illúmina, custódi,
rege et gubérna.

Prayer to One's Guardian Angel

Dear Angel, in his goodness God gave you to me to guide, protect, and enlighten me, and to bring me back to the right way when I go astray. Encourage me when I am disheartened, and instruct me when I err in my judgment. Help me to become more Christlike, and so some day to be accepted into the company of Angels and Saints in heaven. Amen.
