Prayer to Send Your Guardian Angel to Mass

In those times when we cannot make Mass, we can ask our Guardian Angel to go for us.

O holy Angel at my side,
Go to church for me.
Kneel in my place, at Holy Mass
Where I desire to be.

At Offertory, in my stead,
Take all I am and own,
And place it as a sacrifice
Upon the Altar Throne.

At holy Consecration's bell,
Adore with Seraph's love,
My Jesus hidden in the Host,
Come down from heaven above.

Then pray for those I dearly love,
And those who cause me grief,
That Jesus' Blood may cleanse all hearts,
And suff'ring souls relieve.

And when the priest Communion takes,
Oh, bring my Lord to me,
That His sweet heart may rest on mine,
And I his Temple be.

Pray that this Sacrifice Divine,
May mankind's sins efface;
Then bring me Jesus' blessing home,
The pledge of every grace.

Our FSSP Priest showed us this prayer in a Latin Mass for children DVD at a class a few nights ago. Talk about a great prayer for adults and kids alike. Thanks for posting it!
God bless.
