We should have frequent recourse to prayer, and persevere a long time in it. God wishes to be solicited. He is not weary of hearing us.  The treasure of His graces is infinite. We can do nothing more pleasing to him than to beg incessantly that He bestow them upon us.

Day 227 of 365 Days With God

All who undertake to teach must be endowed with deep love, the greatest of patience, and, most of all, profound humility. They must perform their work with earnest zeal. Then, through their humble prayers, the Lord will find them worthy to become fellow workers with him in the cause of truth. He will console them in the fulfillment of this most noble duty, and finally, will enrich them with the gift of heaven.

Today is the optional Memorial of Guardian Angels.   Give God thanks and praise that he has charged you with your very own Guardian Angel to guide and protect you  all your days.  You can also offer up a ‘Glory Be’ in Thanksgiving  to God for his faithfulness and goodness, and in honor of your .Guardian Angel.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

 and have made the Most High your stronghold,

No evil shall befall you,

no affliction come near your tent.f

*For he commands his angels with regard to you,g

to guard you wherever you go.h

With their hands they shall support you,

lest you strike your foot against a stone.i

Psalm 91:9-12

Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom His love commits me here,
ever this night be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen.
