Bless the Lord, all you angels, you ministers, who do his will.Alleluia, Alleluia.

The Directory on Popular Piety and the Liturgy provides insight into today’s celebration: 
“Devotion to the Holy Angels gives rise to a certain form of the Christian life which is characterized by:
devout gratitude to God for having placed these heavenly spirits of great sanctity and dignity [at our service];
an attitude of devotion deriving from the knowledge of living constantly in the presence of the Holy Angels of God; serenity and confidence in facing difficulties situations, since the Lord guides and protects the faithful in the way of justice through the ministry of His Holy Angels” (216).
In the presence of the angels I will sing your praises, Lord.Psalm 137
ANGEL OF GOD,
my guardian dear,
To whom God’s love commits me here;
Ever this (day, night) be at my side,
To light and guard, to rule and guide.
Amen.
