Prayer to Saint Gabriel

O loving messenger of the Incarnation, descend upon all those for whom you wish peace and happiness.  Spread your wings over the cradles of the newborn babes, O thou who didst announce the coming of the Infant Jesus.

Give to the young a lily petal from the virginal scepter in your hand.  Cause the Ave Maria to re-echo in all hearts that they may find grace and joy through Mary.

Finally, recall the sublime words spoken on the day of the Annunciation-- "Nothing is impossible with God," and repeat them in hours of trial--to all I love--that their confidence in Our Lord may be reanimated, when all human help fails.  Amen
