Padre Pio's daily prayer to his Guardian Angel

PADRE PIO

Padre Pio regularly saw his Guardian Angel and spoke with him often.

Among the many miracles that surrounded St. Pio of Pietrelcina was his ability to talk not only with his own Guardian Angel, but also with other Guardian Angels.

One day a fellow priest, Padre Alessio, came to speak with Padre Pio. However, Padre Pio said to him, “Can’t you see that I am very busy?” Padre Alessio was confused as Pio was simply sitting in his chair.

Then Padre Pio added, “Didn’t you see all those Guardian Angels going backwards and forwards from my spiritual children bringing messages from them?”

Below is Padre Pio’s personal prayer to his Guardian Angel that he prayed on a daily basis. While we may not always see our Guardian Angel like Padre Pio, we should always try to develop a relationship with the angel who daily protects our soul from danger.

Angel of God, my guardian,to whom the goodnessof the Heavenly Father entrusts me.Enlighten, protect and guide me now and for ever.Amen
