  1. I would like the Guardian Angel Prayer (Angel of God, my guardian dear…) translation in Chamorro, do you happen to have it? Thank you for your kind consideration. Most sincerely…

    1. Here’s one version, but it’s not a literal translation and its even missing a line or two:
      Anghet Yu’os ni pumupulan yu’,
      mames na ga’chong-hu;
      cha’-mu dumidingo’ yu’
      pa’go na pupuengi yan agupa na ha’ani.
      Taiguenao mohon.

      An retired Chamorro Capuchin priest is working on a much better translation for me, and when I get it, I will post it.

      Thanks!
