Prayer to One’s Guardian Angel for a Happy Hour of Death
By: St. Charles Borromeo
My good Angel, I know not when or how I shall die. It is possible I may be carried off suddenly and that, before my last sigh, I may be deprived of all intelligence. Yet, how many things I would wish to say to God on the threshold of Eternity. In the full freedom of my will today, I come to charge you to speak for me at that fearful moment. You will say to Him, then, O my good Angel:
That I wish to die in the Roman Catholic Apostolic Church in which all the Saints since Jesus Christ have died, and out of which there is no salvation.
That I ask the grace of sharing in the infinite merits of my Redeemer and that I desire to die in pressing to my lips the Cross that was bathed in His Blood.
That I detest my sins because they displease Him and I ask pardon through the love of Him, for all my enemies as I wish myself to be pardoned. That I die willingly because He orders it and I throw myself with confidence into His adorable Heart, awaiting all His Mercy. That in my inexpressible desire to go to Heaven, I am disposed to suffer everything it may please His Sovereign Justice to inflict on me.
That I love Him before all things, above call things and for His own sake; that I wish and hope to love Him with the Elect, His Angels and the Blessed Mother during all Eternity.
Do not refuse, O my Angel Guardian, to be my interpreter with GOD and to protest to Him that these are my sentiments and my will.
