Send Your Angel to Mass


Send Your Angel to Mass

*This very special prayer was written by a devout woman named Ruth Merz from Cincinnati, Ohio. Ruth was the mother of eight children who was diagnosed with cancer, which eventually and sadly claimed her life. Unable to attend mass because of her illness, she wrote this wonderful prayer. We hope that her words will convey special meaning to those who are ill and to their friends and families who care for them. Please feel free to share it with anyone that you feel might benefit from it.

SEND YOUR ANGEL TO MASS:

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 bell, Adore with Seraph’s love My Jesus hidden in the Host Come down from Heaven above. There pray for those I dearly love And those that cause me grief That Jesus’ blood may cleanse all hearts Give suffering souls relief. That when the priest Communion takes Then bring my Lord to me That His sweet heart may rest in mine And I His temple be. Pray that the sacrifice divine May all man’s sin efface Then bring me Jesus’ blessing home The pledge of every grace. Amen

Wow, never thought of sending my angel to attend mass. Inspiring. Made me realize not to have any excuse to go to mass whenever I can even if it is not Sunday. Thanks for the edifying prayer!

I have not had a way to go to mass since August of last year. I live nearly 2 miles from church and have some disabilities. This prayer is a blessing. I will copy it and say it often.

I ask God to permit all the people in Purgatory to come down to celebrate mass every week with me. Only 20-30 people ever turn up at my church mass but when I invite all the souls in Purgatory, over 100 plus living beings turn up as well as their relatives from purgatory. If I forget to ask, only about 20 people turn up to mass. Do 3 Our Fathers, 3 Hail Mary's, Glory Be and the St Michael prayer and then ask.
