O Angel of God, my blessed protector,
to whose care I have been committed by my Creator
from the moment of my birth,
unite with me in thanking the Almighty
for having given me a friend,
and a guardian in You.
Accept, O most charitable guide,
my fervent thanksgiving for all You have done for me;
particularly for the charity
with which You undertake to accompany me through life;
for the joy with which You were filled
when I was purified in the waters of Baptism;
and for Your anxious solicitude
in watching over the treasure of my innocence.
