O Almighty and merciful God, who hast commissioned Thy angels to guide and protect us, command them to be our assiduous companions from our setting out until our return; to clothe us with their invisible protection; to keep from us all danger of collision, of fire, of explosion, of fall and bruises, and finally, having preserved us from all evil, and especially
from sin, to guide us to our heavenly home.
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
'Whatever house you go into, let your first words be, 'Peace to this house! ' And if a man of peace lives there, your peace will go and rest on him' (Lk 10, 5-6).
