On this, the final day of the Novena, we petition the Lord for angelic protection for this life so that we may make it safely to Heaven.
Heaven is our true home, where we will finally discover and be our true selves and live in eternal happiness and joy, united with the Father and sharing in that union with our loved ones who are there.
It is our destiny and where we are meant to be. God created us to be forever with Him in Heaven, not for eternal damnation separated from Him in Hell.
All that Love He has for us makes one wonder why we still persist in doing the things which separate us from Him (sin).
The angels are around to protect and guide us. Rely on them after each sinful fall. Ask for their help and protection so that you arrive safely in the Heavenly homeland.
Now, to the Novena:
Begin the prayer with: O God, come to my assistance. O Lord, make haste to help me. Glory be to the Father…, etc.
By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Angels may the Lord grant us to be protected by them in this mortal life and conducted in the life to come to Heaven. Amen.
[Say one Our Father and three Hail Marys after your intentions for protection for the rest of this life until safely in Heaven.]
