The Seven Angels Before the Throne of God
These favored seven angels are the highest Princes of the Heavenly court. They are believed to form a privileged circle most close to Almighty God.  Although their most important occupation is “the contemplation and praise of the Divine Essence”, we have been encouraged to invoke them that they may obtain for us the grace to avoid the seven deadly sins and that they may enrich us with the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit.

The Seven Angels Before the Throne of God,
we invoke you,
pray for us!

Prayer to The Seven Angels Before the Throne of God

O bright Spirits, behold my soul, cleanse it in the streams of the Blood that has merited for us every grace, every protection, every help, for time and for eternity.
 By that same Divine Blood, obtain that I may treasure all Its precious drops offered to me in God's graces and in the Sacraments of Holy Church.
Amen!

Saint Gerard
Bishop of Toul

Gerard was born in 935 Cologne, Germany. He was educated at the cathedral school there. His mother was reportedly killed by lightening. After this sad occurrence, Gerard devoted himself to the religious life. He became a canon at the cathedral and in 963, was appointed Bishop of Toul, France. He was predecessor of Pope Saint Leo IX in that see. Gerard ruled the see of Toul for thirty one years. He was a noted preacher. He made Toul a center of learning by bringing Irish and Greek monks into the diocese. He rebuilt churches and monasteries and, according to Dictionary of Saints by John J. Delaney, he founded the Hotel Dieu Hospital in Toul.
Gerard died on April 23, 994 at Toul. He was canonized in 1050 by Pope Leo IX.

Saint Mary Euphrasia Pelletier
Foundress.
Disciple of Saint John Eudes.

Mary was born during the French Revolution on 31 July 1796 on the island of Noirmoutier, off the coast of Brittany in France. She was baptized Rose Virginie. She studied at Tours, and in 1814, she joined the Institute of Our Lady of Charity that was founded by Saint John Eudes in 1641 to help wayward women. She made her religious profession on 9 September 1817, taking the name Mary Euphrasia. In 1825, she was elected superior of the institute.
In 1829, Saint Mary Euphrasia founded the The Congregation of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd at Angers. The Congregation was dedicated to working with wayward girls. It received papal approval in 1839.
The congregation spread quickly and by the time of her death, it had almost three thousand nuns in foundations all over the world.
She died at Angers, France on 24 April 1868 and was canonized on 2 May 1940 by Venerable Pope Pius XII.
