Novena to Saint Raphael
Glorious Archangel Saint Raphael,
Great prince of the heavenly court, you are
illustrious for your gifts of wisdom and grace.
You are a Guide to those who
journey by land or sea or air,
consoler of the afflicted and refuge of sinners.
I beg you, assist me in all my needs and in all the
sufferings of this life, as you
once helped the young Tobias on his travels.
Because you are the “medicine of
God”, I humbly pray you to heal the many infirmities
of my soul and the ills that
afflict my body. I especially ask of you the
favor (mention your request) and the
great grace of purity to prepare me to be the temple of
the Holy Spirit.
