A few prayers for Departed loved ones

Because I had heard that you should turn to the Archangels whenever you experience the loss of a loved one,
I came up with this page. It is also listed in the "Tribute to my mother".
First, this is my own spontaneous prayer for my mother : Lord Jesus Christ, I ask that you guide me as I recover from the loss of my mother. May your mercy fortify me today to accept your will even in what I don’t understand fully yet. Help me emulate my mother’s kindness and humility, her even-tempered demeanor and her easy-going personality! Help me become a better person because of the gifts of love and trust that she gave me. May she rest in peace with you!



Prayer to St. Raphael, Angel of Happy Meetings:
O Raphael, lead us towards those we are waiting for, those who are waiting for us!
Raphael, Angel of Happy Meetings, lead us by the hand towards those we are looking for!
May all our movements and theirs be guided by your Light and transfigured by your Joy.
Angel, guide of Tobias, lay the request we now address to you at the feet of Him
on whose unveiled Face you are privileged to gaze.
Lonely and tired, crushed by the separations and sorrows of life, we feel the need of calling to you
and of pleading for the protection of your wings, so that we may not be as strangers
in the Province of Joy, all ignorant of the concerns of our country.
Remember the weak, you who are strong--you whose home lies beyond the region of thunder,
in a land that is always peaceful, always serene, and bright with the resplendent glory of God.
Saint Raphael
Saint Gabriel

« Saint Gabriel archange, ange de l'Incarnation,
ouvre nos oreilles aux doux avertissements
et aux appels pressants du Seigneur.
Tiens-toi toujours devant nous, nous t'en conjurons,
afin que nous comprenions bien la Parole de Dieu,
afin que nous Le suivions et Lui obéissions
et que nous accomplissions ce qu'Il veut de nous.
Aide-nous à rester éveillés afin que, lorsqu'Il viendra,
le Seigneur ne nous trouve pas endormis. Amen. » (Prière traduite de l'allemand : Saint Gabriel "la Force de Dieu")trouvé sur le site: ici )

St Michael Prière à saint Michel du pape Léon XIII (1884)
Saint Michel Archange, défendez-nous dans le combat,
soyez notre secours contre la malice et les embûches du démon.
Que Dieu exerce sur lui son empire, nous vous le demandons en suppliant.
Et vous, Prince de la Milice Céleste, repoussez en enfer par la force divine
Satan et les autres esprits mauvais
qui rôdent dans le monde en vue de perdre les âmes. Ainsi soit-il.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host
– by the Divine Power of God – cast into hell, satan
and all the evil spirits, who roam throughout the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
