Invocation of the Nine Choirs of Angels

O holy Angels, watch over us at all times during this perilous life.

O holy Archangels, be our guides on the way to heaven.

O heavenly choir of the principalities, govern us in soul and body.

O mighty Powers, preserve us against the wiles of the demons.

O celestial Virtues, give us strength and courage in the battle of life

O powerful Dominions, obtain for us dominion over the rebellion of our flesh.

O sacred Thrones, grant us peace with God and man.

O brilliant Cherubim, illuminate our minds with heavenly knowledge

O burning Seraphim, enkindle in our hearts the fire of charity. Amen.
