O all ye holy Angels,
who contemplate unceasingly the uncreated beauty of the Divinity,
in company with our ever glorious Queen,
we present and offer to thee this novena
not only as a means of obtaining favors
but also as a reparation for our past ingratitude,
and that of all men.
Deign to accept it,
O amiable Spirits,
in union with the love and devotion of such Saints
as were especially devout to thee,
and obtain for us the grace to spend this life fervently
that it may be the commencement of that blessed life
which we hope to live forever with thee in Heaven.
O God, Who with wonderful order
hast regulated the functions of Angels and men,
grant that those who always assist before Thy throne in Heaven
may defend our lives here on earth,
through Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord,
Who liveth and reigneth with Thee,
in the unity of the Holy Ghost,
one God, world without end.
